Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian man accused of killing 76 people in a coordinated attack, wrote a 1,500 page manifesto. Entitled 2083: A European Declaration of Independence, the manuscript outlined plans for attacking writers, journalists and literature professors.
These plans are especially frightening as the attacker now claims he was part of a larger organization. The New York Times has more: “The 32-year-old man accused of devastating twin attacks in Norway now maintains that two cells of extremists collaborated with him, court officials said here Monday as they ordered solitary confinement for the suspect.”
In his horrific manuscript (some lifted from the Unabomber manifesto), Breivik wrote about different classifications of “traitors,” or individuals he felt could be killed during his imagined revolution. In his handbook, he suggested that revolutionaries consider attacking both “literature conferences and festivals” and “annual gatherings for journalists.”
