from my experience--i think the jw generation born in the 1920's and 30's were obsessed with stories of demons. Even my late father was hooked into it--and would repeat any demonic bullshit story told to him by some crackpot. yet he was otherwise a very sane and intelligent man.
i was terrified by the thought of demons as a child--only getting over it as my teen years progressed. then--in my late 20's i overheard my crazy mother in law telling it all over again to my young kids. i hit the roof and really told her what i thought of it all.
but i think the current young generations know its all just nonsense. in the civilised world anyway.
