Generation Passed Ignorance Tradition

I do not seek explanation or justification, and I will ignore any. If you're easily offended, or have something stuck up your ass, please do not continue.
We've always been hearing horror stories about Ashura, the religious festivity celebrated by Shi'a Muslims on the 10th of Muharram. In which they immortalise the memory of Alhussein, the prophet's (SAAW) grandson and celebrate his death in the battle of Karbala.
I wonder how many of Shi'a Muslims agree, and take part in the ignorance of the celebrations. Every year, hospitals get filled to their brim with sheep who hurt themselves by hitting themselves with their hands, chains, blades and knives.
Ask them about the date the Prophet (SAAW) passed away in and 99% of them will not answer you correctly, but will be more than ready to tell you when Alhussein died, and explicitly tell you how. I refuse that Islam is associated with people like that, who chose their sacrilegious sectarian traditions against the teachings of Islam.
Do Shia's think what they're doing is right ? Do any of them feel peer-pressured and tradition-influenced into preforming such acts ? Will any of them step up against the norm of ignorance and chose reason ? After 1370 years of backward thinking, will any of them confess to submit to their religious leaders instead of religion itself ? What exactly are they mourning ?
