The Rave

Definition:
Raves are high energy, all-night dance parties attended by hundreds to thousands of teens and young adults. The music is upbeat and loud. Typically, techno or other electronically synthesized music is played by DJs using mixers. The music is accompanied with bright lights and other psychedelic visual effects designed to enhance the effect of the drugs commonly consumed ( primarily ecstasy, lsd, and others ).

The Raves may be held at peoples homes, in old warehouses, or outside ( in an open field ). Many Raves are "underground," with information about the location spread by word-of-mouth or on the Internet. Other Raves are public and more visible, held at venues such as large arenas, fairgrounds, or dance clubs.

The Culture
Ravers (those who attend raves) adopt an alternative culture. Ravers tend to accept anyone, regardless of age, race, or socioeconomic background.

Many Ravers dress distinctively in baggy clothes and fluorescent colors and wear glitter on their face and body. Raver accessories include backpacks designed with cartoon characters, bright beaded jewelry, pacifiers, and glow sticks. Water bottles and candy, especially lollipops, are the Raver's basic equipment.

The philosophy of the Rave movement is PLUR - an acronym for Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect. They believe that the music and atmosphere of the Rave create positive "vibe" - an indescribable feeling of complete happiness that integrates "Peace and Love" into the music and dancing.

The movement is very similar to the social / spiritual revolution that began in the late 60's and 70's. The philosophies of the hippies and flower children of that era have re-emerged in the Rave scene.

Under the guise of Peace and Love, the devil is using music and drugs to deceive masses of young people.

The Scripture
Notice the Bible's call to be sober and alert of the reality of an adversary:

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. -- 1 Peter 5:6-11

...the god of this world ( the devil ) has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. -- 2 Corinthians 4:4

Phhhhht....According to the bible, washing yourself daily makes you a heathen.

Fuck breathing hard could construe you as a heathen.

Eat a dick and be a heathen, that's what the Religious far right is all about.

forget the christian stuff and the devil and al that.......an argument could still be made that combining music and drugs is dangerous thing.

i mean music, like all art, isonly a representaion of someone's take on reality...no matter how good or poignent a piece of art (movie, music, painting) is...combining a drugged mind and a poweful piece of art could cause any individual to draw incorect conclusions about particular make-ups of what seems to be real.

almost everyone catergorizes art into categories of like and dislike. this means we are making assumptions about what we deem to be good/relevant representaions of reality....humerous, dramatic, informative etc.

i mean, is the rave scene really a positive and productive thing for the collective or for the individual?.....i mean, i enjoy it, it's fun....but that doesn't mean in reality it's of any GOOD...it could be destroying my mind, confusing me, causing me to have brain problems.

whatever.
