This is the type of confusion that cults exploit to the hilt. They are

Interpretation of magic, which gives a pseudo-logical interpretation to facts that cause anxiety and distress, relieves the doubts of an individual who has generally failed to cope with existential questions. Society is seen as threatening and oppressive, because of the logical and rational character of the answers that it proposes. This fear and anxiety are fought by the new reality and solutions offered by magic.
