Bewitch: (v) to cast a spell on and gain control over someone.
If a mean, dark genie with sinister plans came and asked me to raise a child and to make sure that the young human life would end up being evil, I would use two bewitching tools: I would teach the young person that fighting was demanded and that lying is necessary.
It is the formula for birthing a scoundrel.
These two factors determine the peace we release or the greed we breed.
For if I can convince anybody they need to fight and that lying is an option … I usher them to the doorway of their ultimate disgrace.
