The accused at Salem weren't burnt. They were hanged, with the exception of Giles Corey. He was pressed to death under stones.During the early days of America, the famous and controversial Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts involved the systematic accusation and burning of people (many of them women) accused of practicing illegal witchcraft.
Since then, America has enforced freedom of religion laws protecting peoples' rights to practice personal philosophies of religion (be they mainstream or not) peacefully.
The modern mass consumerism era has made convenience products such as fast food a thing of everyday lifestyle rapture, putting the almighty dollar ahead of most considerations of religious meditation.
The Salem Witch Trials may prove to become an anthropological symbol of humanity's eccentric but libertine fascination with spirituality daydreaming.
