Bad Juju

In the civil wars of Western Africa, the combatants render themselves bulletproof by wearing wigs and woman's dresses, fetishes made of hair and spells cast on them by jujumen.

The even try covering themselves with urine.

Of course none of these things work...but it's the belief that they will that's important.

In the west, superstitious persons think that making laws will perfect their fellow citizens.

It's the belief that counts, huh?
