Mycophobe

Mycophobe: One who fears and abhors mushrooms.

How amusing it has been to discover in mycophobia the willing, nay determined subservience of many Europeans to a simple taboo such as we like to associate with primitive peoples, a subservience to emotional responses that seem to stem back to the days when our ancestors found themselves face to face with the miraculous powers of the sacred mushroom! The secret lost, the taboo survives. Like the tribes our anthropologists study, we cling to our taboos and seek to justify them by rationalizing them.

Few men want freedom, however they may talk. But then again perhaps man is free in his choice when he chooses to abide within the confines of his unreason.
