What wrath of gods, or wicked influence

Of tears, conspiring wretched men t'afflict

Hath pour'd on earth the noyous pestilence

That mortal minds doth inwardly infect

With love of blindness and of ignorance?

Spencer's Tears of the Muses

Between the 14th and the 17th century, blind, ignorant and superstitious authorities paid bounties for the apprehension of witches and wizards in what could only be described as a war on witchcraft.

Countless thousands of innocent people across the globe were purchased in a killing mentality of an ignorant fear enraged populace and burned at the stake after a "trial" of lies and the fraud of witnesses.

Being stretched on the rack while under questioning by an inquisitor never failed to bring confession of innocent victims some of whom confessed to even more than charged , ignorantly believing it would save them from the burning pyre.

Fear mongering by the superstitious elite was used as a device to entrench themselves into total control of the minds of the masses. They were and became the"saviors" of an insane society

John Baptist Cibo elected to the papacy in 1485 as Pope Innocence VIII, issued a manifesto in 1488 whereby he called upon all the nations of Europe to rescue the church of Christ against the arts of Satan. To do so he appointed inquisitors in every country armed with apostolic power to convict and punish evil doers.

That hysteria extended it's tentacles to the American colonies in the 17th century where a three year old girl was burned at the stake for being a witch among countless other witches and warlocks.

We may have thought that such ignorant behavior on the part of the masses ended with enlightenment of the 18th century when Thomas Jefferson penned the words, "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness".

Yet 3 centuries later we again find mankind mired in the slushy bog of mindless mass fear of witch craftery renamed as terrorism. It happened just 21 months into the new millennium when a technologically advanced society bursting with invention and hope to lift itself out of the dark ages of human interaction chose instead to slump back into the pit of mass fear and self destruction.

On that clear September morning when planes smashed into the twin towers in New York City incinerating some 3,000 souls, masses of Americans were led into a reactionary war against a new era of witchcraft. It could not have been more clear had "Satan" and his evil hoards appeared in the sky over Manhattan.

As a result of the popular outpouring of vengeance against the instigators of the crimes of 9-11, the Department of Homeland Security was swiftly created as a weapon against terrorism (and a loss of freedom of the masses) in the same manner as the Bull of Pope Innocent VII was used to deal with suspected witches.
