Isn't it the same? Both this strategy and religion reley on implanting the idea in a subject that there is a non zero possibility of something very bad happening to them if they are naughty. And for the same reasons... To coerce a potential enemy into an behavioral pattern agreable to the author of the Paranoia Bomb.

Some people truly believe in a Religion, I would wager that many more go along out of a vague naggging "what if I am wrong" style fear. This is exactly the same non zero probability angst.

On the move - sorry No spell check.
