The Pinata Syndrome

by Dale Lowdermilk

FOREWORD: Repeated early childhood exposure to violent “Piñata Parties” manifests itself as latent genocidal behavior in adult male politicians who first enact gun control and then kill everyone who disagrees with them. DALE LOWDERMILK
Recently, while returning from a beach barbecue, my son Michael and I began discussing the reasons why there’s so much violence in America. A universal aspect we discovered points an incriminating finger at one “innocent” childhood activity and may explain aberrant behavior in political leaders throughout history. Although our conversation eventually centered on gun violence, our discussion was triggered, no pun intended, by watching a group of young party animals celebrating a friends birthday. With what can only be described as irrational pre-gang behavior, these hyperactive alpha-males engaged in a ritualized pummeling of an innocent paper maché cow. A frilly orange and blue farm animal was helplessly dangling by a rope from a tree limb. Although brightly decorated and filled with lots of candy, these agitated little demons were hitting the cow as though it were an invading army. To make matters worse, the adults who were suppose to be supervising this activity were actually encouraging them to higher and higher levels of violence. When the final blow was landed by a powerful 7 year old, the mutilated cow dropped to the ground with a sickening thump, spilling the entire contents of it’s head and stomach into the grass. There were pieces of bubble gum, lollipops, confetti, coins, melted chocolate, hamburger coupons, Pokemon cards, and even gift certificates for a local ice cream shop, strewn all over a once-civilized picnic area. Not satisfied with witnessing an innocent paper cow being ripped to shreds, they began furiously kicking and thrashing the bovine remnants until there was nothing left. The noise, screaming, nervous laughter and sheer confusion was enough to get the attention of everyone within 100 yards. Michael and I questioned whether all this commotion and frenzy, like little sharks on a sugar-high, was necessary for having “a good time” and why such reckless abandon was even legal. We also speculated as to possible long term sociological “after shocks” these boys might experience as they grew older. Historically, there is now evidence that some psychopolitical “viciousness” may start as early as 2 years of age. (See Ratio Chart ref86, DWI & Sec481 Earth In The Balance 1988b) The event described above is a frequent Southern California disgrace, called a “Piñata Party” and it’s origins can be traced to satanic behavior in Central and Southern Mexico (See 19Orwell’s 1984 A-B line on graph) in the mid-1600’s. Similar celebrations by todays male children could explain higher rates of petty crime, violence against seniors, gang behavior and animal mutilations. Michael also pointed out possible tangential correlations to high levels colon cancer and chronic unemployment. (Ref. et. al 48Erectothermo Imbalances, by S.O.What 1995, pp 666) Visualize the year 1610. A local witch doctor convinces his village that a more abundant crop will result if the “gods of the good harvest” are appeased. Everyone fills a few clay pots with wheat, corn and oats, throws them into bonfire, and BINGO...the crop harvest is indeed plentiful proving that the magic works. The following year everyone decides to decorate the pots with some graffiti, bright paint, add a few trinkets, and slams them against a wall. To everyone’s amazement, the crop harvest doubles and in some cases triples. Everyone in the surrounding villages pick up on the idea and for an extra measure of luck, larger and more ornate pots are hung and smashed at weddings, birthdays and full moons. A few years later, along comes some Catholic priests who proclaim this activity a primitive, ungodly and unwholesome ritual. The Priests give everyone a choice to halt the “rituals” or have their heads chopped off. With great cleverness, and wisdom, the villages contrive an excuse to continue the event. The priests were tricked into thinking that the indians were reenacting biblical scenes. For example, by placing 7 points on the original clay pots it represented the 7 deadly sins. Clay was also formed into sacrificial sheep, goats and cattle.(GodRef NIV Exodus 20 ver 24.) These animal effigies were stuffed with candy and earthly “temptations, ” to represent the devil and his minions, then villagers gathered around to smash these symbolic Beelzebubs. By destroying all satanic “piñatas” they demonstrated a Christian “victory” over evil. The priests were happy and decided not to kill everyone. The crop harvest kept getting better and better and the witch doctor kept his job. Who would have thought that such a small compromise would begin a pagan “piñata tradition” which has now festered into a major societal problem for the 21st century. Today we’re left to deal with a subtle but violent “backfire” spawned by clever natives against unsuspecting 16th century missionaries. (666My Way Is The Only Way by Card. Win EmOver, pp223-289, 1844 pb, et. al cont. ss133.a) A most obvious recent example of this “Piñata Syndrome” was the videotaped beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles police. Why did those cops beat up him so badly? The best explanation is “piñatalogical regression” which can be traced to hyperactive childhood birthday celebrations and bludgeoned paper farm animals. The policemen were probably trying to kick “the candy” out of Mr. King thinking he was a piñata. Why do gang members like to kick other gang members, even after they’re on the ground?...the Piñata Syndrome! Many sporting events become violent and it’s not just the players. In some cases even spectators have become “piñatatized.” At soccer, football, baseball and other “blood sport” events, this mass “piñatic frenzy” can become uncontrollable and fatal. Such behavior is easily traced to childhood parties with swinging sticks and sugar rewards for vicious aggression. “Show-no-mercy-to-the-helpless-or-weak” is a phrase often chanted by “piñataholics.” When innocent young males are taught at an early age that the best way to fully enjoy winning the “prizes of life” is to beat it out of something, our society is in jeopardy. It would be prudent to require childhood-party-background-checks on anyone applying for police, military, football, soccer, political office or professional wrestling careers. (See sign on the dotted line #4 on 21chart). Male applicants with a significant number of level-5 or higher piñata-like events in their family history should be prohibited from owning pointy tipped boots, leather clothing, guns or sharp objects. Since gun ownership is a very sensitive issue, politicians must use creative, yet subtle, ways to quell street violence. One popular suggestion calls for “gun control.” Getting rid of guns in the name of “social safety” is probably a good idea but, like the piñata, it’s not a new idea. As you examine the accompanying chart, let’s take a little journey down history lane to see how Joseph, Adolph, Chairman Mao, Idi Amin, Pol Pot and politicians of every denomination have, over the past 100 years, tried to make the world a safer place with gun control. Keep in mind that the “piñata-factor” has never been considered important in pre-political psychological profiling…until now. In 1911 Turkey established gun control. From 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. The 1911 leaders of Turkey were high-risk “piñata-deprived” youngsters, and were trying to make up for lost childhood excitement. (I Wonder Years by H. Perot, 1920, pp62 al et.) The Soviet Union established gun control in 1929. From 1929 to 1953, approximately 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Psychiatrists now agree that Stalin was definitely a victim of latent Piñata Syndrome and as a child was repeatedly beaten with a stick. (Univ of Moscow, Historical Records 1955, and My Mother My Lover, by J. Stalinski 1930-31, Sec. 7b, 12-15 et.69 al) In 1938, Hitler convinced Germans to established gun control in the interest of “public safety”. From 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, and “social misfits” unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Evidence indicates that Adolph was used as a human “piñata” at least twice before the age of 9. He was once publicly humiliated by being forced wear blindfolds during a 4th grade art contest. (39Mein Kampf, pp 63-65, 1935. albie freit hamburgeracd) Under the benevolent wisdom of Chairman Mao’s gun control, 20 million political dissidents from 1948 to 1952, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Many experts now believe that Mao himself suffered frequent “piñata flashbacks”. As a cruel hoax, his parents spiked his 8th birthday piñata with gunpowder instead of candy. The resultant explosion caused permanent facial disfigurations and hearing loss. From that point forward, Mao developed a terrible attitude, distrusted foreigners and had no sense of humor. (The Wisdom of Mao, by Mao, 1941-1944, pp 3-984, sec. A2c, revision 3., 55abstract et. al Shame on U 1946.) In 1964, to reduce crime and make the country “safer”, Guatemala established gun control. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Here, in the country where the piñata originated, is a classic example of why you should never trust politicians who were raised in the country, believe in witch doctors and like to hit things with sticks. (88USA Yesterday, Oct 1967, pp 54-55, et. al) In February of 1966, Cambodia established gun control and from 1975 to 1977, one million "educated" people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Piñata-like objects were found in the office of Pol-Pot along with several hundred pounds of stolen candy. (52Rumors and innuendo, 19,529smart people now living in Thailand, 1978-80) In 1970 under the paternalistic guidance of Idi Amin, Uganda established gun control and from 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. (71aAnonymous sources seeking political asylum, Feb ss8 Mar, 1992, Aug. 1997). Mr. Amin is a rare case of “piñata deprivation” syndrome. As a youth, his village was so poor they couldn’t even afford paper maché, so he made up for it as an adult. There is a delicate balance between “piñatatosis” and simple “sugar overload”, (Hospitale Mumgabwe, records dept., Feb 2, 1996.,202 local radio stations, 77local newspapers. Mrs. K. et. al) Last year, 1999, Australia in lock-step with history, established gun control. Law abiding citizens were forced to surrender 640,380 personal firearms for a “destruction program” costing the government more than $500 million dollars. The results Australia-wide are as follows; Homicides are up 3.2%, Assaults are up 8%, and armed robberies are up 44%. In that country's state of Victoria, homicides with firearms are up 300%. Over the previous 25 years, figures showed a steady decrease in armed robberies and Australian politicians are on the spot and at a loss to explain how no improvement in "safety" has been observed after such monumental effort and expense was successfully expended in "ridding society of guns." Fossilized aboriginal kangaroo piñata’s were discovered in 1996 which were stuffed with shrimp and barbecued. Insanity is sometimes defined as repeating the same mistake over and over again, while expecting different results. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that the “good intentions” of todays politicians might easily be twisted into something very dangerous by tomorrow’s zealots. Piñata’s parties and birthday celebrations are not as harmless as they might appear. Instead they are dangerous pre-gang training environments for future terrorists and dictators. Birthday Party Regulations must be enacted immediately to prevent any further brutalization. Speaking of dangerous childhood events and “safety-at-any-cost” solutions, America might indeed be a safer place if there were no guns or piñatas, but is safer always better? Of the 10 articles in the Bill of Rights are only nine protecting individuals when referring to "the people"? Of course not! To isolate or interpret the Second Amendment as a mysterious "state’s right" issue is inconsistent with the remaining nine amendments. The freedom of speech is not a “state” right, nor is the right to own a gun…both are INDIVIDUAL rights. Making comparisons between the requirement to obtain a driver’s license, and a license to own a handgun overlooks one subtle difference. The right to drive a car is not guaranteed by the Constitution, the right for an individual to “...keep and bear arms...” is. Each Article in the Bill of Rights protects an individual’s right to write a book, wreck a piñata, own a gun or eat as much candy as his/her pancreas can tolerate... Big Brother gets nothing. The lynch mob mentality of gun control advocates in their "holy crusade" for world safety, not unlike those 16th century priests in Mexico, concerns me greatly. Let’s ask survivors of the Holocaust and the other 52 million victims of gun control how much safer they felt after firearm registration and confiscation, all in the name of safety. When asked why U.S. troops will remain in the Balkans for the next 15 years, Secretary of State Madeline Albright answered, "...because weakness attracts vultures." Thirty one states have passed "concealed carry" laws and most people own a firearm because weakness attracts vultures.
Benjamin Franklin said that "Those willing to give up essential liberty to obtain temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Bureaucrats masquerading more regulations as "answers" to aberrant social behavior are simply not asking the right questions. For an America at the crossroads of "safety vs. liberty," that most important question can still be found in the last line of the National Anthem.
Now, let’s all go and beat the ethnic stuffing out of a piñata of our choice. Dale Lowdermilk, Founder NOT-SAFE Box 5743, Montecito, CA 9150 USA
