    Because, as most other countries in Europe, Norway does not have the death penalty.

    He would probably be more valuable as a guinea pig. He can pay his debt to society that way.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

I'll reserve my sympathy for the victims and their families.

    Norway has universal health care. If this guy didn't get diagnosed and treated, it's no one's fault but his own. If he did see a doctor but chose to not take his medication, that is also his fault. This guy IS responsible, one way or another.

    Apparently, professional opinion in Norway is highly divided on his diagnosis: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-15954370

    There was this other guy who had the same problem, wrote a book called My Struggle and totally fucked Germany's prospects for generations, probably forever, medicine or a diagnosis wouldnt have stopped him and I dont think its the answer this time either.

    Nice article but to be honest what criminal isnt going to reject the idea that they're warped?

    I'm sure there's a hell of a lot of sex offenders who reject the peadophile label and insist that if everyone would just stop denying it they all fantasise about sex with children and its a perfectly normal thing, the reality is a different matter, I used to think that executing them would be a good idea but given how many times the last profile case in the UK has tried to kill himself in prison it would appear that the indefinite incarceration is more of a torture, and therefore more punitive or retributive, than straight up killing him.

    Leaving Brevik long enough to realise that he's not the hero in his own personal narrative but totally out of touch with reality could ultimately crush the hell out of him more than permitting him to get off on the whole martyr routine he'd plotted out for himself.
