The Lone Terrorist in the Workplace / The Violent True Believer as a Lone Wolf – Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Terrorism

J. Reid Meloy and Jessica Yakeley; “The Lone Terrorist in the Workplace”  and “The Violent True Believer as a “Lone Wolf” – Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Terrorism

 The authors explicitly group OPCA ideologies with the beliefs of right wing hate groups and ultra conservative Islamic groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda, possessing a potential source for the last of three key elements that motivate ideologically driven violence in “lone wolf” terrorists:

(1) a personal grievance blamed on others,
(2) moral outrage linked to a “victimized” group,
(3) that is framed by a superficial, cherry-picked ideology which rationalizes aggression.
