Wrong place, wrong time
Revolution is necessary in some places and times. Unfortunately Norway in 2011 isn't one of them. The smaller countries of Europe have been moving rapidly toward healthy Nationalism. In those countries democracy actually works.
Populist parties of various flavors have gained complete power in some, influential plurality in others.
Now the Nationalists will be discredited, and the grotesque mutant monstrosity of the EU will gain even more tyrannical power, will gobble up everything in the region. The Gramscian secular internationalists will roar into bloody triumphal vengeance against all Nationalists and Christians.
By contrast, the Arab world and the English-speaking world are places where revolution is the only possible way to solve the problem. In the Arab world democracy never began. In the Anglosphere it has totally and demonstrably failed.
Secular internationalist governments have completely lost the consent of their people. We have already seen various forms of revolt in the Arab world, not yet in the English-speaking world.

A bit later: Breivik's attempted revolution suits the ends and purposes of the EU perfectly. You couldn't have asked for a better trigger to bring the Green Curtain smashing down on all those little countries. Now EU will be able to associate all Nationalists with horrific violence. In the countries where Nationalists have gained power through PERFECTLY PEACEFUL AND NORMAL DEMOCRATIC MEANS, they will be replaced by 100.00000% orthodox Gramscians who will then happily open up all borders and surrender all sovereignty to the almighty Brussels and omnipotent Gaia.
Because it's so perfect, I'm going to assume an agent provocateur was involved somewhere along the way, though we'll never be allowed to know. We're never allowed to know anything, but we can observe things. One thing we can observe is the immediate and constant hammering on Breivik's "Christian fundamentalist" faith, even though his own manifesto shows him to be more of an Odinite (like Hitler and McVeigh) than a Christian. Also, the standard stories are omitting the fact that he was heavily using steroids, which would account nicely for a huge compulsion to do violent things. Without the steroids, the idea that Nationalist beliefs directly cause mass murder is more plausible.

Later, from Reuters:
Police had believed Breivik acted alone after losing faith in mainstream parties, even those that have gained popularity and parliamentary seats on anti-immigration platforms in otherwise liberal, tolerant European nations, including affluent Norway.
The attack was likely to tone down the immigration debate ahead of September local elections, analysts said, as parties try to distance themselves from Breivik's beliefs and reinforce Norwegians' self-image as an open, peaceful people.
Norway's immigrant numbers nearly tripled between 1995 and 2010 to almost half a million. Arguments that many were drawn by generous welfare handouts spurred the growth of the Progress Party which became Norway's second biggest in parliament after the 2009 election on a largely anti-immigration platform.
Provocateur behind this. Unquestionable. Norway was about to join the set of peacefully elected Nationalist governments, and it had to be stopped.
