Has anyone been following the case of the neonazi podcaster in the States, Christopher Cantwell? He's been found guilty of extortion and interstate threats. There's been a lot of coverage about it in the online journal "The Intercept": https://www.informant.news/p/snitches-cowards-and-liars It's hard to feel very sorry for him, when people get imprisoned for victimless crimes, the story is not without a certain amount of poignancy. <"I need to understand the problems of the entire world because if I dared to look inside of my god damned self, well that that would end with a fucking Glock in my mouth,” Cantwell said in a lengthy 2016 audio recording. “Am I the greatest person who ever lived or the fuckin’ stupid piece of shit who deserves a bullet in his skull? I’m not entirely certain from one moment to the next.” <We don’t know what goes on inside the heads of most neo-Nazis, what self doubt lies beneath the racist, misogynistic, gun-toting, race-war-preparing, hateful, alpha male bullshit. <With Cantwell, we have at least a glimpse. There were, in Cantwell’s mind, only two options: He was either “the greatest person who ever lived” or someone whose life had no value at all. <And in that sense, he is no different from anyone else who turns to the easy, black-and-white answers provided by the far right.
