We now, to a larger and larger extent, see far-right extremists not only taking to the streets and intimidating communities, but entering European parliaments.

I read the news that Anders Behring Brevik has been declared 'sane', with a sense of relief for those who will now see the man punished for the despicable crimes, which he committed with malice and prior forethought. I also had a sense of triumph for those fighting the stigma and misunderstandings surrounding mental illness.

If I was Breivik's doctor (which I'm not), I would want to at least attempt to rehabilitate him. If I was a relative of one of his victims (which I'm even more not), I would want him to suffer. Thinking about it now, I don't know which is right. Neither? Both?
