All these postulated dangers have been proven unsubstantiated and wrong. They are politically functional constructs and welltailored myths for legitimizing and mystifying a hidden curriculum of vested economical interests and increased state control over deviant lifestyles and supposedly dangerous classes. The twenty-two articles of the reader encompass the entire realm of empirical social and legal sciences capable of deconstructing those myths.
