Cameron Oldfield Mrs. Brincks English III 15 November, 2015 The Crucible and Red Scare Imagine being thrown in jail, blamed for something that you didn't do .The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, is a story about how certain propaganda and false accusations can ruin lives, just like in the case of the Red Scare. Although 1692 the Salem witch trials and the Red Scare were over 200 years apart, The similarities are striking. both trials used intimidation, fear, hatred, and false accusations to ruin innocent lives. Both trials resulted in terrible outcomes, with both ending with innocent people being put to death and shunned from society. Arthur Miller was one of the most popular American playwrights
In the 1600’s, during the Renaissance and the enlightenment, people were discovering new things everyday, but bad things were still happening.

Myth-busting: Ergot Poisoning The years 1691 to 1692 mark an important date in Salem Massachusetts. A small village on the North coast of Massachusetts, Salem became notorious for their injustice and cruelty of their Witch Hunts, in which over 20 people, men and women, were executed in half a year. Surrounded by Religious Paranoia and uncertainty in their newfound community, people began looking at practices of the Devil as a scapegoat for unusual happenings. Believed to have been works of the devil for centuries, this idea has been rebuked in recent times, as a study in 1976 strongly suggested the effects of Rye Ergot Poisoning to be the main force behind the Witch trials. The main cause behind the Salem witch trials can be said to be Ergot Poisoning, also known as Ergotism, where a victim would fall to severe Muscle Spasms and the effects of a modern day LSD.
Groceries stores are constantly throwing out food that looks bad, or have passed the expiration date. But most of the time expiration dates aren’t very accurate. Then grocery retailers end up throwing away food that is perfectly fine. 10 million tons of food is lost yearly because farmers throw away crops that have imperfections or don’t look good. But farmers really don’t have a choice in the matter, the picky consumers of today force farmers to conform.

The tax collection agency hires Hijras because of the fear people have towards them. It is believed that Hijras have “special powers” to curse or to bless. “A culturally widespread belief in India is that Hijras have the power to curse people with sterility and bad fortune, most dramatically by lifting their skirts and exposing their mutilated genitals” (Nanda). The fear and anxiety this belief provokes are sufficient to force most people to give in to their demands making them perfect for the task. Imagine you run a business in India and you are culturally immersed in the Indian traditions and one month you skip your rent.

People learn about India not through pictures, but through experiences. unhygienic practices are dreadful to those not used to it. The main problem is the dementia that most Indians suffer from...that anything outside one 's home is not home. Municipal initiatives to provide dustbins in public places are nixed because people thanks to poverty steal them without thinking about the consequences. Even when there is a dustbin right before their eyes, we do see people here littering.
