Pedephilia as the new communism

http://thesigother.livejournal.com/19646.html?nc=2

is about how fear of actual injury to children has spread to behaviors that aren't injurious.

I'm wondering if there's a structural difference between moral panics that have some rational concerns at their core (being sexual abused is devastating, communism caused massive damage in many countries) and those which are based on nothing (witch hunts, fear of a gigantic Satanic conspiracy).
