Anders Behring Breivik, Facebook, and Psychopathy

Researchers from Sahlgrenska Academy and Lund University in Sweden have studied whether status updates on Facebook can indicate if a person is a psychopath or shows other undesirable tendencies, such as narcissism.

In a report in the scientific journal Personality And Individual Differences titled ‘The dark Side Of Facebook’, the researchers inform that if one does not want to be outed as the next Ted Bundy, one should not not put any status update which mentions prostitutes, decapitation, pornography or butchers.

Not having a Facebook profile could also be a bad sign according to them, and they cite James Holmes and Anders Behring Breivik as examples.

The interesting thing here is that Breivik did have a Facebook account, which was deleted after 7/22 because his profile was receiving too many messages from sympathizers, and those messages in turn were getting too many thumb-ups. It’s difficult to take these researchers serious if they can’t even get the most basic facts right.

It should also be noted that in modern psychology the desire to prevent the extermination of your people is considered a form of extreme narcissism. 

The obsession with the psychological state and political attitudes of the citizenry is a primary characteristic of every police state. Breivik himself wrote in 2083 to be careful what you write online, to blend in and appear more moderate than you truly are.

Facebook itself is a tool of mass censorship where every public and private message can be reported if it violates Facebook’s Terms of Service, which basically states that any opinion contrary to the Cultural Marxist ideology is considered hateful and subject to censorship. An interesting question for psychologists to answer is why people stay on Facebook even though it means they can’t express their opinions freely.
