seduction - the process of deliberately enticing a person to engage. The word seduction stems from Latin and means literally "to lead astray". As a result, the term may have a positive or negative connotation. Famous seducers from history or legend include Lilith, Giacomo Casanova and the character Don Juan. (Wikipedia).

St Anselm had a serious disagreement with Henry I, who was married to the daughter of the King of Scotland. There is thus a long and saintly tradition for the opinion that Scotland is Ghastly

dystopia - a society under a repressive and evil regime, often under the guise of a Utopia. An example would be Scotland under Macbeth

"By the pricking of my thumbs,
something wicked this way comes!"



Comment by Second Witch, predicting the arrival of Macbeth. Second Witch was one of my only two appearances on stage. The other was as King Herod. Think I was being typecast?

bystander - strictly, a person at an event or incident who does not take part. My Dad was a London firefighter and was quite used to them, only they were called rubberneckers, but he told me that many's the time he would have liked to turn around and let 'em have it with the hose.
