Witchcraft Always Has a Hard Time, Until it Becomes Established and Changes its Name

"Most likely when [inventor of the electroscope] Dr. [William] Gilbert rubbed a rod and made bits of paper jump on a table, the opposition to his magic was directed not so much against what he was doing as against what it might lead to. Witchcraft always has a hard time, until it becomes established and changes its name."
—Charles Fort, Lo!
