‘Play Deficit’ May Also Offer Insight Into Murderers and Even Terrorists

The new study of play behavior may even, say researchers, help explain why some people become murderers and terrorists, and others don’t.

They report that the opposite of play — an unnatural lack of play activity, or even worse, the constant suppression of play by a parent or adult group or political leader — may increase the likelihood of violent behavior.

Having a severe “play deficit†at any age is associated in a number of studies with a mild but chronic depression, and in some cases even with mass murder.

As Brown recounts in the video below, Charles Whitman, who suddenly seemed to snap and then killed his wife and mother before climbing the tower at the University of Texas in Austin with a rifle and shooting many more people, suffered a severe suppression of natural play behavior and shared a similarly dismal “play history†with a number of other murderers.

Also, the movie/book "We need to talk about Kevin" reminds me of TW also:

The gripping international bestseller about motherhood gone awry

Eva never really wanted to be a mother—and certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker, and a much-adored teacher who tried to befriend him, all two days before his sixteenth birthday. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood, and Kevin’s horrific rampage in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her estranged husband, Franklin. Uneasy with the sacrifices and social demotion of motherhood from the start, Eva fears that her alarming dislike for her own son may be responsible for driving him so nihilistically off the rails.

You know, that's probably how cults operate--they suppress play among children, producing little terrorists for God. The FLDS forbids toys, and a lot of other fundie sects seem to have strange expectations of kids' behavior.

Not saying that this is what That Bitch is doing, what she's doing is neglect. I won't be surprised though if bathroom baby grows up to have ... Issues...
