@karengeier So I read this book a while back - which seems to be a legitimate case of a child abuse ring in Omaha NE, but also much wilder allegations of conspiracy (on far shakier ground) involving satanism, high up politicans in a 1980s pizzagate style scandal.
Not so much about the hysteria but it touches on that same 1980s focus on satanism
@karengeier David Frankfurter, an excellent scholar of the ancient Hellenistic and Egyptian worlds, did a great study of this pattern--early Christians were accused of very much the same kind of "ritual abuse" that you see 19th-century Catholics, 1980s daycare workers, and (!!) John Podesta accused of https://press.princeton.edu/titles/8135.html
@karengeier if i can find that one particular police training video on satanism that i love i'll send it your way, it's on youtube somewhere
@karengeier I'm excited to see what you come up with!! Michelle Remembers and Satan's Underground are my favorite discredited SRA memoirs, and Gary Cartwright's article about daycare owners convicted of abuse is incredible: https://www.texasmonthly.com/articles/the-innocent-and-the-damned/
