10 Tests For Guilt at the Salem Witch Trials - Listverse

Rhetoric is only as potent as its source material; this is why any allusion to the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 is so effective. What comes immediately to mind is the hideous and completely unfound legal proceedings--based mostly on superstition, irrational paranoia, Puritanism-fueled mass hysteria, and deception--which resulted in 19 wrongful executions, each one hanged, burned, or drowned for some ill-fated finger-pointing. The imagery evoked is just as barbaric and painful as the means by…

"Un Petit Vacance" in New England
