MAN(un)KIND

 


ON THIS DAY IN 1682 ...

In Salem Village in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Bridget Bishop, the first colonist to be tried in the Salem witch trials, is hanged after being found guilty of the practice of witchcraft.

Trouble in the small Puritan community began in February 1692, when nine-year-old Elizabeth Parris and 11-year-old Abigail Williams, the daughter and niece, respectively, of the Reverend Samuel Parris, 


began experiencing fits and other mysterious maladies. A doctor concluded that the children were suffering from the effects of witchcraft

and the young girls corroborated the doctor’s diagnosis. Under compulsion from the doctor and their parents, the girls named those allegedly responsible for their suffering.

And Cancel Culture has been thriving in America ever since.


What do you think?

  1. Oh, just a thought: I wonder if that doctor was an ancestor of Dr. Fauci?
