But fear turned people into animals lacking any logic. Fear swept into the trash heap of all sorts of human rights, rule of law and other accessories democracy. Now civilized Westerners were no different from Stalin's subjects. They also inform on each other, trying to shoot all who seemed to them "not so." A universal mania caused something like a mass vision. People saw what they believed, and they were afraid. The same Hodson met in Bryusseleperepugannuyu respectable lady on May 13 that told him, saying that the Germans throw exploding watches and pens, and after falling just a German bomb all the houses within 150 yards were simply swept away. Yes, such a radius of destruction - it is almost a nuclear bomb tactical! That's what makes the fear!
