Delusions make you see things, and in Vienna they made almost everyone see double on Monday, when a madman was on the loose, killing people.
First reports insisted that there was more than one gunman. They often do. It also happened in the mosque shootings in New Zealand in 2019.
This is because police and media have it fixed in their heads that such attacks must be organised and political. Some are, but most are not.
I will be lied about and accused of excusing Islamist terror when I say it, as I so often am. But most of these attacks are by crazed individuals sent insane by marijuana, a terrible drug with great PR.
We’d know if we looked. But we want to think they are something else.
