The Wizard has no power. He has to exploit the fear and ignorance of others. That is a theme in history that repeats itself over and over. How many times have we seen leaders and dictators who prey on the differences in others in order to galvanize a group of people? It happens all the time in history, repeatedly.
Along this same vein of thought, I have added one link on the right 'Abuse Prevention & Assistance', that will connect readers, who are experiencing abuse, to Canadian local, provincial and federal groups. The misuse of power is an issue for us all.
