    The Salem Witch Trials

    I occasionally muse over the Salem witch trials. It really are the first story I remember in my modern life telling young boys of the evils of being male. The story as I always heard was boiled down into "a bunch of religious zealot men blaming everything on women and then killing a bunch of them as a result". Eventually sanity returns, etc...

    I have to wonder what the truth behind the story really is. Where women accusing each other to get rid of their competition? In a more general sense, how obnoxious had the women become? "Modern Witchcraft" is definitely a female-centric belief system. Now keep in mind, we don't have to believe in witchcraft to recognize the people of the time did. Were the women actually practicing witchcraft in an effort to overthrow a hard patriarchy?

    I look around at some of the female behavior today. Women are "creating art" with period blood. I saw a picture of an obvious feminist getting a tattoo of a baby with a pick through its head. The tattoo was right on her abdomen were it would be if she was carrying it. Even in the modern age, demonic possession is the best explanation I have for such behavior. What would men conclude in a more primitive time?

    So bringing it back, as far as I can remember, it really is the first story I learned that contained the big lie. It would seem that women were doing nothing more than sitting around doing their knitting when a crowd of irrational men would burst through the door, drag them out, and burn them at the stake. Never once to I remember entertaining the question, "What were the women actually doing". Is there anything they could have been doing worthy of the death penalty? Hell, I don't know... Maybe they were actually murdering their children as an act of worship to the horned god, or Hecate. They were accused of witchcraft right? Who knows what foul acts they were carrying out in that effort. Again, look around at their behavior in the modern age for a clue. The question was simply never asked though. I seriously wonder what was really going on back then.

    There is a good chance they werent doing anything "witchcraft" related but probably something antisocial or undermining social cohesion.

    Lets be honest no society before the current western one wasted public money on old unmarried childless women that added nothing to society but sharp tongues and conflicts.

    They were probably a poison for the general group and for the younger women of such group in particular and since you cant kick them out for no reason you accuse them of being witches so no one could protect them.

    Some theory however say that many of them were nurses and they were stealing jobs at doctors when it came of births therefore the doctors found a trick to get their job back.

    Good question and one to which I suppose we’ll never know the real answer. We all know how lop-sided history books can be. Throw in a few conspiracy theories and differing academic studies and the whole thing is a mess.

    For myself though I consider the whole period, whatever its true reasons, as a very real warning of the dangers of following the herd:

    Someone dislikes another for whatever reason and makes false accusations. A few others join in not wanting to be implicated by association. Before you know it you have an enraged mob acting on emotions rather than evidence.

    Remind you of anything? #metoo? #nevertrump? #believewomen?

    Re: The Salem Witch Trials

    It's Massachusetts, nothing has changed, I'm pinned to an overgrown forest where the citizenry was evicted except for those that built homes, that was 45 years ago, 22 years ago the entire development was placed under CEASE AND DESIST and lawfully closed for all purposes public and private and yet the government lives on in a tangled web of lies and deceit. To add insult to injury the fire chief declared this area a fire hazard as many of the roads are now impassable from reforestation.

    Massachusetts has an evil core like no other. I dwell in that undesirable rotten core while taking necessary measures to survive the law as it was decreed and eternally condemned. The USA has a shitstain on it's flag, it's constitution, and it's so-called republic. Atrocious and criminal has become the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The trust is rust, rot, and dust, quite literally...

    There is an old proverb: "Every dog has its day", unfortunately whoever coined this phrase forgot about the "bitch".

    Today is the day of the bitch and that is the cause of the shitstain.

    Like all others before it this day will pass, man will come up with a shitstain remover, but I'll be surprised if I'm around to see it.

    The way I see it, it all ties together, your entire life, "vengeance is mine", "judgment day", all will stand before god, I'm just sweeping up a whole lot of extra vengeance for him, like a strong speaker magnet in a box of nails! My website about this place had allot of biblical quotes pointing out the shitstain. Love thy neighbor as thyself was one of them with photo's of the mass eviction debris and retirements in the background. The hypocrisy was astonishing, like black and white (the same way we see the truth about women empowered), the Selectmen that conjured this surprise CEASE AND DESIST order with help from Massachusetts lawyers, went into executive session, about us, without us, giving illegitimate reason "potential litigation".

    The Selectmen were two women and one mangina, the women were impeached (recall election) and removed from office after the order, and I was the CEO that received the order at that time, I followed the order, and closed the entire development as so ordered, adjudged, and decreed in the documents I received. Everything was immediately roped off and legally closed. After that I was overthrown in a coup when I informed the board of directors that a license was deemed necessary to resume operations directly or indirectly under the 23 year old Superior Court injunction and resent CEASE AND DESIST order had stated at that time. The liability of operating without a license after CEASE AND DESIST is off the charts and beyond indemnity, Massachusetts has in fact created a rogue state by this process. Legally it's no different than dwelling in an old condemned amusement park. But in reality it's the Abusment Park from hell. Hell on Earth as I stated in a letter to the oval office with other complaints. Tyranny now thrives unabated, unabashed, and unhindered here in the United States of America.

    Our plight as men in this witch hunting culture has placed us in grave danger of so much misery that many upon many choose to take their own live! I joined the ranks of MGTOW with the same purpose, because I see the mindfuck meltdown perpetrated on men by ruthless and overreaching government intoxicated on power with willing ignorance to their own contributions to injustice.

    The Danger is real, you just have to be willing to admit it to yourself and embrace enlightenment! Then enlighten others and let them decide for themselves, red pill, blue pill, a life of radical defense, or just another soul ground up by the meat grinder of injustice delivered by law and court order. A new dark age is upon us and my only duty is to light the way for my brothers while scolding and enraging my sisters with the sacred truth of enlightenment. It's so fucking dark now I have to use 3 billion candle power!

    I vaguely recall you telling that story on the other site a few years back but in it current state unable to search. Would be interested in hearing the story again.

    Here's the tip of the iceberg in a bombastic saga that extends every day down this long trail of perdition, here's the basic details: https://www.goingyourownway.com/mgto...s-intro-12070/ I guess it isn't off topic considering the thread is about Massachusetts witch hunts and burning people alive.

    I have to wonder what the truth behind the story really is.
    It was a land grab. Those accused witches owned the land next door to the families that accused them.
