Misunderstood, mistreated and maligned for centuries, modern witches are still fighting to expose the many lies about “the craft” as put forth by wicked Hollywood, impious religionists and crooked politicians.
During an era of western world witchcraft hysteria; the pursuit, persecution and killing of thousands of women, and many men and children, accused of practicing witchcraft –resulted in an authoritarian struggle organized by Church and State to repress ancient knowledge of ideas, actions and formulas such as using long-held family recipes including potions, tinctures and herbs to heal, as well as astrology and/or psychic abilities to help predict & foretell specific outcomes. Not to mention woman’s rights and freedom of speech.
The State, in the form of local magistrates, were particularly focused and concerned with the land owned by many widowed “witches”. As the State aligned with law enforcement, judges and the Church, unfortunate widows were sometimes robbed of their property and dignity once accused of “consorting with the devil”.
In a similar attempt to deny the importance and quell the position of the ageless “medicine man” and “wise woman” within every community and society at large, today’s Government’s are, as ever, united in the pursuit, persecution and prosecution of all free-minded individuals and property owners as declared by the United Nations Agenda 2030 as well as total global dominance in the form of a New World Order : a one world Religion, Monetary System and Military Force.
As the “powers that be” have been conjuring black magick on the public for generations in the form of mass propaganda, fake news and predictive programming, rest assured that many of today’s witches are well and will-tested: prepared to battle and survive modern sorcery put against true believers of love and light. ***
