The harm is ignorant peasants hear that shit and start to think they're up there casting magic spells, that we're the Chosen Ones.

Times get hard and you get even a little uncertainty, and these people go to ground like the shelling has started. They dig in and absolutely can not be moved off of that magic spell thing. And if you aren't with them, you're against them.
