@do not love me,
The Salem Witch Trials have been studied by many scholars and laymen alike. The incident refers to the accusation that several individuals (mostly women) in colonial America were engaged in anti-social witchcraft practices that disturbed the peace.
The trials themselves were and continue to be controversial, since many believe the accusations were based on religious panic and social angst rather than on evidence of terrorism.
A nice American Playhouse adaptation of the subject is "Three Sovereigns for Sarah - A True Story of the Salem Witch Trials" (1985) and the Arthur Miller adapted Hollywood (USA) movie "The Crucible" (1996).
As a born-again Christian and the son of Hindu parents, I have studied religious diversity and am curious about how the Salem Witch Trials reflect the modern cultural marketability of underground art comic books that can in ways seem like anti-social euphoria.
The comic book villain Video-Man (Marvel Comics) is an enemy of the superhero Spider-Man and can incredibly travel through electric wires and computer networks like a modern Internet virus. Video-Man is a modern anti-social totem that beckons allegorical explorations of heresy fascination in America and reflects 'philosophical engineering' incidents such as the Salem Witch Trials.
What is the symbolic relationship between terror and ecstasy?
