    Are drugs necessary for us to function as a society and get on with our fellow man? Because surely the current system of money, kids, car, gadget *******s, property etc.. just seems to divide and alienate people. The purest form of human expression is to dance in a field to music and it just seems to me as if that sense of community and comradeship has been lost. This is the only real way of avoiding more riots this summer imho.

    Please, ravers are not changing anything other than their own temporary state of awareness. Raves can be fun when you are young enough, but that is about the extent of what the "profound experience" of getting high and dancing represents. Do try to come back to planet earth and function with some purpose in your life after you are done mesmerizing the masses with psychedelic dress and [email protected] gyrations. If you don't then your life will most likely end up a disappointment, and your persona will be a punchline.

    The rave scene back in the late 80's early 90's was a huge movement, a combination of hard times, good drugs and good music certainly changed a lot of things.

    Football hooliganism for one thing was in my opinion quelled more by the rave movement than any other factor through out it's history. The music and the drugs did for sure bring people together... now, whilst the rave scene is still alive, it's little more than a good night out, it's not as huge as it was and it's not affecting society in the same way as it did back in the day...
