From Yorkshire, England By Karma Singh
When I was a child, we were all told stories about a mysterious figure who would come to eat bad children. He had various names up and down the country and appears not only in all European folk-lore but also in Middle Eastern, Indian, Japanese and the entire American continent. China? I just don’t know.
Descriptions of the “Bogey Man” are amazingly uniform across cultures which, naturally, gives rise to the question,
“Did he actually exist and, if so, what is really behind the story?”
There are two divergent opinions on this: The one believes that, at some time in the distant past, a race of giants or extra-terrestrials preyed upon human children. The evidence that giants did, for some time, co-exist with Homo Sapiens is irrefutable but whether they ate our children is a very different question.
The other opinion refers to the millennia-old trade in kidnapping small children and selling them for sexual perversions. Figures for 2018 claim that there are, world-wide, more than eight million missing children: How many are in the hands of child sex traders or their clients is known only to them.
President Trump vowed to end this trade in his election campaign and, during his first weeks in office, more than six thousand such children were found and set free. It was, further, disclosed that nearly one third of the children had been taken away from their parents by bureaucrats and the courts and then sold into slavery.
The Bogey Man is, however, such an integral part of our early childhood that, even though the form may well have changed with the advent of uncontrolled television and the internet, this “primal fear” can still be easily activated.
