In regards to predictable hysteria: we have never been this close to exposing the roots of social panics.

The Guardian covers a story about the release of a Texas couple who spent 27 years behind bars due to false charges of  “Satanic Ritual Abuse.”

Like all social panics, and moral dilemmas, we know that the Satanic Abuse trials of the 1980’s were largely orchestrated events designed to grab the public’s attention, and garner resources for police state initiatives, and votes for pandering politicians; not to mention the fact that it was government programs like MKULTRA and its like programs that started the hysteria to begin with.

And today, thanks to that hysteria and a few others, the local police departments have armed personnel carriers, and grenade launchers to help us out in traffic jams–or something like that.
