The most certain outcome of this event for the left politics is fear. The left is already marginalized and betrayed by own elites in most countries. They can't buy a confidence boost in this century. Whatever revival scenarios were in cards, the area of passive fear - of loosing your job, house, friends, and now perhaps your own life - has just expanded. Whatever "global awakenings" you may hear about, you don't see any mass pressure on rather coherent crashing events (unlike the 1960s), just a passive observation. Did totalitarian manipulation experts dream of anything better?
Even if there will be an expectable crackdown, with these governments you will never know what they would be actually doing. Thanks for extra "emergency" powers, no watch this... A compartmentalized control of global politics, economics through shock events is not only feasible, it should be now a serious consideration.
Don't laugh, but I checked a few "truth" sites:
Oslo Police Conducted Bombing Exercise Days Before Terrorist Blast
Obama Reaction To Norway Massacre Betrays US "War on Terror" Fundamentalism
I don't believe that "the" global conspiracy is that awesome as, say, David Icke describes. That type of conspiracy actually needs to inflate its awesomeness with "leaking" stories to leave a few options to those "getting it". Let's see: the mass media is evidently consolidated and routinely manipulated; much of alternative information sources do not leave much potential for rational analysis; more and more commentary and decisions are based on fear, unknown factors. It goes only one way since some time, and no slowdown or turn around in sight.
