I posted the tract about one of Queen Elizabeth I's counselers and inner circle advisers as a way of flipping the script a little bit.
There is a highly sophisticated science employed in the media which manipulates perception by plays on the culturally defined taboos of their majority audience. In the mainstream Judeo-Christian mindset which these media caters to, invoking the terms "witchcraft" to belittle or demonize non-white cultures is quite typical.
The "higher sciences" which have made the practice of empire possible for Europeans have their roots in "magic" and what some would consider "witchcraft" - in the forms of alchemy(the basis of chemistry), divination(binary number systems at the core of computer technology), the power of stones(crystals, coltan, and other earth based minerals which makes computer, aerospace, wireless technologies possible), etc.
So when that they use loaded terms such as "witchcraft" to show the "primitive" or "savage" nature of non-white cultures, it is quite easy to flip these perceptions on their head.
Meanwhile the captains in their secret societies still employ perversions of the rituals of the "savages" in their secret rites.
