        Which is why I think at the end of the day, there are so many other possibilities - it could be personal, or criminal, or a result of drugs, or mental illness, or unemployment, that it's so very dangerous to start saying for sure it's political or ideological, or even if it is we can even predict what those motives are or that they're rational.
