Answers

The Salem Witch Trials devastated that area of the country for a long while. Society broke down. Neighbors were suspicious of each other. Innocent people were killed. No one knew who to trust and everyone began to keep to themselves lest they be accused of witchcraft. This, as you could imagine, limited any sort of creativity, ingenuity, or forward thinking. Everyone lived in fear.
