Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] "I'm german! I was born in Germany ": this phrase screamed so furiously as well as defensively by Ali David Sonboly should become the symbol of the violence that has occurred in recent days in Germany, but also France and the USA, just as it could be as valid as it is now underestimated response to question Warum? Why? Indeed, it seems increasingly evident that the frantic search for a stable and recognized social identity, whatever it may be, is the ir-rational thrust that led to the mad exploits of the attacks in Munich, Reutlingen, Ansbach and before that on the train at Heidingsfeld and Wurzburg. As has been rightly pointed out, the profound social and cultural roots of the attacks, their anchoring to a sense of non-belonging, of refusal and radicalization go beyond borders and borders, sometimes self-imposed, of Islamic terrorism or extremist matrix.
