contrary to popular belief, the european witch-hunts were not the work of frenzied superstitious peasants in the dark ages, but rather were a well orchestrated campaign of the ruling classes to suppress resistance against the privatisation of the commons, lasting well into the enlightenment. this violent femicide served to split the lower class via dividing it by gender, while simultaneously inscribing the rigid gender roles we have yet to shake off.

the branding of people as undesirable and their subsequent violent removal which serves to keep the rest in terrified submission has not been an isolated event in history.

nothing left explores a personal perspective on the issue, some works relating it to other such crimes in history and others to personal traumas and losses.
