History of the Salem Witch Trials and Groupthink | ASMR Soft-spoken

615 ratings | 18751 views
The Salem witch trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693. More than 200 people were accused, nineteen of whom were found guilty and executed by hanging (fourteen women and five men). One other man, Giles Corey, was pressed to death for refusing to plead, and at least five people died in jail. It was the deadliest witch hunt in the history of the United States. Group think is an accurate term for what brought this about. Let's find out what happened and how it could've been avoided. Thanks for watching, guys.

A truly amazing intro
Jahan Jacobson (2 months ago)
People who practice Wicca (witches) know that what they put out as spiritual energy comes back to them (karma). Most Wiccans therefore avoid black magic in any form, and stick to blessing and helping others. Many do not believe in the Devil, and do not worship the Devil. Wiccans existed in the past and exist now. They get a lot of bad press. I am not a Wiccan myself, but I attempt to correct stereotypes about different groups. IMO stereotypes about Wiccans persist because of how they are portrayed in movies.

You've saved my sleep and my over active brain many many times. Both Rich's, in fact LOL

Nice! I’ve been watching this channel for a while. I been noticing a comeback of witch trial logic these days. Nice to know other people are noticing it too. Also, thanks for reigniting my interest in space and the universe and teaching me about history as well. I’ve always wondered if ASMR could be used to help information soak into the mind a little better. After listening to your videos I feel like it does.

I'm so glad you did your research and history round up on this. I practice myself and I've tried to enlighten others on the subject but I'm usually met with glares and denial. So thank you for putting the truth out there, I hope this will reach those who believed the stigma.

Matt Reed (5 months ago)
Haha nice intro. Our country is too divided rn. Identity politics and this left vs right mentality has got to stop. It's preventing productive discourse, and preventing progress as a society.
NOn Playable character um sweetie that's kinda what he was getting at in the video. you can do both. you can enjoy the asmr and not worry about the other commenters.
Dan MacLean (5 months ago)
NOn Playable character I agree. ASMR is relaxing. Politics is mind boggling. I’d rather not mix the two! 😆

Lmao carl Sagan with a southern accent !! That intro, tho. 😂. I have been listening to a podcast about the witch trials, & how it revolved around 2 very rich families that fought over the land- Salem and Salemtown (?) . interesting stuff. Curious as to your take on it. Settling in to watch. (If i dont fall asleep first. Lol)

Giles Corey is an interesting fellow. From what I’ve read, He refused to enter a plea, as doing so, then being found guilty would result not only in your claims to money and property, but also your next of Kin’s claims to money or property via a will being negated. He died to protect his son’s claims to his farmland, or so I’ve heard.

Day 4 of no nut November: I’ve began to unravel my true reptilian self. I stare at myself in the mirror for exactly 1 hour and 27 minutes every day. I’m starting to hear colors and taste sound. I looked at my hot pocket and was able to heat it up with my mind without using a microwave. I catch myself levitating at random times. Who am I. Who is me?
