TextDecapitation in Aztcc Mcxieo was so impor t ant tha t both thc writtcn and the archaeological record are full of examples of its practice. Deeapi tatíon involves the fields of mythology, politics and economy (agricul tur e and hunt ing) . All four aspccts will be mentioned, but the agri cultural one stands out. The severing of heads or r a the r the skulls themselves are related to fa me and to honouring thc deities. Torquemada (1975, p. 221) left the following description: "y parecíales que en tener sus templos t an adornados de estas cabezas se mostraban famosos y grandes guerreros, muy valerosos en a rma s y muy servidores y cultores de sus dioses". According to Broda (1988, p. 71) the fundamental concern of Aztec ritual was with rain and fertility. [ . . . ]. Another very important element was the extreme conditions of the natural environment of the central Mexican highlands. During the dry season there was a constant lack of water, while during the rainy season the waters could be dangerous by their excess. Thunderstorms and hail, and even frost, could threaten the young crops during the initial months of the rainy season. The obsession for controlling the rains within religión thus had its direct material basis. human being, anímals (espec:ially qua i l ) were decapitated. The blood of both was used to sprinkle on the images of deities e.g. Huitzi lopochtli and Camaxtli. As will be discussed later, decapitation was so valuable an offering tha t only a t the site of Tlatelolco archaeologists une a r thed 170 skulls perforated for placing them on poles (González Rul 1963) . In many othe r Mesoamerican sites skulls with traces of de capitation are often found. In the excavations oC the Gr e a t Templ e of Tenocht i t l an a great numbe r of offering caches contained supp

We shall now focus on those immo lations in order to establish clearly the link with the e a r th and fertility. Decapitation had a long-standing religious and mythological foun dation in the Mexica case. According to one version of the myth [we shall mentÍon anothe r one further onJ in Coatepec lived a devout woman named Coatlicue, who was the mother of 400 sonso Dne day, she was sweeping in the temple on the Hill: "And once, as she swept feathers, as it were, a ball of feathers descended upon her.
From scientific point it's in their genes,the drugs are the spark to let the ancient rituals revive!

I think that the reason for most of the violence in Mexico, in regards to the cartels and so forth is the huge demand for drugs in the US, the corrupt government in Mexico and occasionally a little bit of US encouragement to stir up the neighbors.
WOW very interesting idea,thanks for that maybe some link to some article.....

The reason for all the ancient grisly death rituals was to feed the demons (archons) that had taken control of those people - they have a big feeding frenzy from all the astral energy released during the death process - being decapitated probably helps in someway for them to feed - same as the Archons pretending to be gods in the OT, or in the Koran.
They are currently posing in a new guise as 'our creator gods's as ETs (greys) to infiltrate the worlds intel agencies etc - but the current wave of atrocities in mexico is no doubt a result of the frequent mass displays of these beings in the skies of Mexico during the 90's - drug use also provides an easy vulnerability for them to exploit.
