  •  I take your point. Someday somebody might have (5+ / 0-)

    a scientific index on that "tipping point" that makes somebody a bomber or a Charles Manson, or just a guy who takes up knitting.  You could add their body chemistry, their early physical injuries, their diet and environmental factors,
    their hobbies, and on and on and on. It's endless. But the dovetailing of the isolation and the fanaticism still dominate. Without those, the other subtle stuff usually isn't enough.
