I like the way you put "being naive out of choice". A lot of native nations have people who for ceremonies plays the "backward person" or in this case the clown. This person usually has their clothing on backwards, walks backwards, etc. This is their decision. In times long past, these people were considered sacred. Today, we would probably say that it was part of a mental disease.
