"Moral panics have a structure that is easy to recognize. A problem is identified. The problem is presented over time in increasingly black and white terms: there are victims and there are perpetrators. A passionate and polemical appeal to action is heard. The struggle to protect victims from the evils of the perpetrators is perceived as so important that fact-checking and nuance can disappear."
