Interesting fact: They have in Finland very liberal law in case of gun possession, but there wasn't many gun related crimes, while in some other countries it would result in war zone (OMG! it seems that we're all not the same or equall!). It's proof that nationalism and isolation (of course in comparison to all those countries "open" for all shit) really works there. The result is peaceful and quite healthy nation (again in comparison to others).
Enter globalization, modern values, internet, corruption, "angry" music etc.
Isn't that a irony that he post all that stuff on the internet?
I doubt that Finish society really gave him so many reasons to "hate". When he say: I hate, I think: victim of those who he assuming to hate.
It was rather fault of being "global teen", which gave him information about corruption of the rest of the world which he may never experienced within his own nation or other social group he lived on. Does he should care about rest of the world (of course if "world" doesn't invade his society/ nation)?
His reasons wasn't sufficient but at least he wasn't passive.
He wasn't all that conscious and accuracy of his beliefs was rather coincidental.
He wasn't any "natural selector" or response to society's illnes, he was product of that illnes. On opposite pole of the same ball of shit.
He gave bad picture of people who are against society's values, and also that who has interest in history or philosophy if this is only action that such people can undertake. And society is too dumb to catch the message that he (could, but not necessarily) had for them...
I'm not shocked or surprised by his actions, and I don't have compassion for his victims or their families.
