Salem Witch Trails
- There were so many people being accused in such short time that things got really crazy and people started accusing the devil to explain the events.
- In the witch trials they never actually saw a real witch.
- There were so many events that people thought were 'zombie' related in one week that people started blaming the bizarre events on a zombie apocalypse.
- Zombies were never actually seen during the time of the apacolypse.
The Americans killed people before they even knew or had so called proof that they were a zombie and after the person was dead, they would then figure out if he was a real zombie or not.
Salem Witch Trails
The Puritans were blaming people of witchcraft first and then killing them for their bad choices.
How it Started
In both the Zombie Apocalypse and the Witch Trails, the hysteria started with one incident that was misunderstood and misinterpreted.
"Mass hysteria is the collective delusions of threats to society that spread rapidly through rumors and fear."
What is it?
People want to find an excuse for crazy behavior, so they find any excuse. They jump to conclusions before the situation is even looked over.
