Killed 77 people, 8 with a bomb, 69 with his rifle. Reportedly many of the teenagers he slaughtered thought he was a security officer given his style of dress, very professional, during the killings.

He did it to draw attention to his manifesto, which looks like a precursor to the current alt-right and nativist movements roiling Europe.

It's also 1500+ pages. Anyone read it? What is the TLDR?

I'm up to page 31 , much to my surprise it's a cracking good read
the part on the birth of "political correctness" linked to the Frankfurt School is quite interesting
I strongly doubt this pace can be kept for 1500 pages , that seems excessively long
it has to devolve into rants at some stage

I disagree, the precursors to the alt-right are people like Jared Taylor and random naziphiles from the /pol/ subforum in 4chan.

As for the manifesto, is not really worth reading it from what I can gather. He talks about the type of videogames he plays, plagiarized the unabomber and references conspiracy theories like the Frankfurt School/Cultural Marxism Conspiracy.

He's pretty much like Elliot Rodger, an angry lonely man.

Many of the topics may seem completely absurd or too radical today, but in a
couple of decades, you will start to understand its relevancy to our struggle.
He has a point. Whether he will be considered as a lunatic or prophet depends on the future course of European history.

Nope. But they didn't kill anyone themselves. And they were leaders of nations. Not basement cranks.
They were leaders of nations because they won their revolution. I would not be sure about them not personally killing people. They ordered killing of millions which is even worse than personally killing few.

This is not history. History is anything pre-1991 on this forum.
