New Age Bible-Thumping
The notion of the devil (corporation) as the incarnation of evil began to take form, and with it the strife against all those who were thought to take his orders and follow his commands. Convicted witches (corporations) were to be heavily finedů.The new tendency actively fostered investigation of all possible and impossible allegations, and freely used torture (lawsuits) to obtain confessions. The punishment was death in the most horrible forms, usually by burning (not quite yet), and the Church (lawyers and bureaucrats) as well as the accuser shared in the financial assets of the victims. Thereby, the path was opened for easy enrichment for some, and hysterical satisfaction for the masses.
