Categorism focused on targeting people with accusations of being a pedophile, a child-molester, or some kind of unspecified-yet-serious danger to children. Baseless accusations of epidemic Child Sex Abuse has been compared to the “red scare” of the fifties and to the witchhunts of the sixteenhundreds.

(In Swedish: pedoparanoia)
