What have we learned after 22/7? That we have a great ability to deny and forget?

by , under Enrique Tessieri

Today marks the day when a white Norwegian terrorist called Anders Breivik murdered in cold blood 77 people. Mentally deranged? This is how some want to interpret such a vile act of terrorism.

One of the matters that the monstrous attack by Breivik has proven eight years after it happened is that we have a great ability to forget and cover up our racism with the help of collective amnesia with denial.

The system also produced Anders Breivik and 22/7. Source: Facebook.

But what can you expect? We have had centuries of training. European history is proof: initial horror is always covered up by collective amnesia.

Disagree?

Where are the news stories remembering this day of infamy?

After the horrors of World War 2, the Holocaust, genocide, and the persecution of minorities, we are witnessing in Europe today the rise of populist parties and politicians (with the toothless approval of mainstream parties) that parrot the same hatred that brought the same horrors of the past.

Wake up Europe or succumb to the horrors and wars of the past. People like Breivik is a toxic warnings that are watered and fed by our denial and racism.
