This sort of reminds me of William Golding's allegory, The Lord of the Flies.....
PORT-AU-PRINCE — Angry Haitian mobs have lynched at least 45 people in recent weeks, accusing them of spreading a cholera outbreak that has killed over 2,500 people across the country, officials said Wednesday.
The number included at least 14 suspected sorcerers previously known to have been lynched in the far southwestern region of Grand'Anse as local people feared they were spreading cholera with a magical substance. The area has been largely spared by the outbreak.
"We have counted 40 people dead in Grand'Anse department alone, where people are attacking natural healers they accuse of cholera-linked witchcraft," said communications ministry official Moise Fritz Evens.
"The victims -- most of them voodoo priests -- were stoned or hacked with machetes before being burned in the street."
The tendency of humans to descend rather quickly into anarchy, chaos, and savagery in the absence of any regulatory forces is chilling.
I am regularly shocked to hear about entire nations who still believe in witchcraft, sorcery, and magical substances. It's 2010! Will somebody bring these barbarians forward into the modern world? They behave as if it's 1410 in stead of 2010.
