bringing people together
precisely. this is part of what bugs me about the whole thing.
since the dawn of time humankind has gathered around a fire, danced the night away on significant dates, and communed with their friends. and
when the rave scene started the various narcotics involved were as they were meant to be. high grade drugs developed for the military and it's
applications. ecstasy was invented originally to help with various traumas. and it works.
now carry that over to the young people. they take this drug, they all feel 'of the same mind' (for wont of better words), and they gather together
and talk to each other, about all different subjects, politics and world problems included. well god knows, tptb can't have that!! like minded
peaceful people gathering together and deciding they don't like where the world is going? oh no, lets legislate... not just the drugs but lets stop
the raves,... hell, don't just stop the raves, stop ANY gathering of more than a few people and throw them in prison.
thus the criminal justice bill was born. as a dj that knows the rave scene quite well i feel quite qualified to state my views! when the narcotics
were as they were originally intended, we all joined together, we all felt like family, and we all helped one another when needed. even when the
narcotics wore off, the feelings were still there, we made lifelong friends and family back then.
then something changed the ingredients... which in turn changed how the vibe went. along with the new legislation it became harder and harder for
large groups of like minded people to gather together,... tptb were so scared of this happening, and people joining the dots and doing something about
it, that they waged war on us all. they ignored rights, tradition and free will in order to stop people effectively banding together. perish the
thought that they'd all come to the same conclusion and get rid of the corrupt governments, and work together to make the world a better place,
can't have that can we.
that was many moons ago.. i haven't used those sorts of narcotics for donkeys years, no point, they're nothing like they were originally... but i
still get the same buzz when i dj, i feel connected with the crowd, and i only ever see smiling faces in front of me.
i miss those days, it was nice to be in a huge crowd of people knowing that any one of them would help anybody else if they needed it. THATS long
