Beginning in 1980 and roughly dated to have ended around 1995, the modern witch-hunt known to sociologists as the “Satanic Panic” was marked by a temporaryhttps://greyfaction.org/ mainstream acceptance of absurd and irrational conspiracy theories related to Satanic Cult mind-control and Ritual Abuse. Countless lives were ruined as courts — influenced by pseudoscientist mental health “experts” — accepted “recovered memory” testimony, no more credible than “memories” similarly “recovered” for alleged victims of alien abduction or offered by believers in Past Life Regression. Fraud “occult crime” investigators offered testimony to the reality of a hidden Satanic threat that, in fact, never existed at all. Though such debunked and ludicrous notions don’t enjoy the same uncritical daytime talk-show fascination they held in the 1980s, organizations like the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) still work to impress Satanic Panic delusions into the minds of mental health consumers and the public at large. Occult Crime investigators, conspiracists, hack reporters, and opportunistic cons tirelessly work to revive their cherished witch-hunt in collusion with a failed mental health care system that never prohibited nor properly censured Recovered Memory Therapies or the delusional and/or exploitative licensed mental health professionals who still use these techniques to draw forth confabulatory false confessions from their clientele. Grey Faction is a sub-organization of The Satanic Temple dedicated to combating irrational conspiracy theory-based moral panics, modern witch-hunts, and the discredited therapeutic practices that still haunt us from beyond the formally recognized Satanic Panic era.
“And this is where today’s Western, somewhat secularized, witch-hunters currently reside: among psychology’s pseudoscientific fringe; feeding delusion to the mentally vulnerable behind the protection of therapist-client privilege, and under the guise trauma therapy. While they revel in their disturbed pornographic fantasies of child-rape and extreme abuse, they proclaim their critics to be demented defenders of pedophilic assault. They co-opt the narrative of victim’s rights to conceal their absurd conspiracy theories from criticism and scrutiny. To question the validity of DID, or even the reality of a Satanic conspiracy, is — according to this defensive ploy — to question the very existence of child abuse itself. In this way, actual victims of abuse are used as human shields to defend our modern inquisitors as they engage in the most outrageous and under-investigated mental health scandal of our time.” (Full article)
