I agree totally, there are so many people now that come to raves and ruin it for everyone. All the annual parties that are a reunion for so many people are being overrun buy people that just want to get messed up and cause havoc. It's so sad.
I suppose I'm only speaking for myself, but when I started going to raves I did quite a lot of drugs. It took me a while to get over it and prove to myself that the drugs weren't necessary to party. What gave me the motivation to see parties as they were and experience the atmosphere without being induced by a substance? All of the old school party kids that stuck around regardless of who was there and came to share their energy. As veteran party goers, it is our responsibility to be welcoming and compassionate toward new ravers. Sure, it's difficult when some of them are so wasted they can barely function but nonetheless they are individuals and they are simply going through whatever process they need to in order to progress in this world. We must live by example and practice the openness and unity we so often preach. Raves are not for a "deserving" elite few. They are for everyone. I go to a party with love in my heart and when I dance I do so with the intention of awakening the sleepers. I offer my skills to the new "green" ravers that they might aspire to more.
Well said. We are all one, remember? We should share our thoughts with each other and the older partykids should help bring the young ones in right, straight-edge. Teach the love of the music and the respect for the scene through PLUR and when he has that, he can make his own decisions about his direction in life. What's happening is people arent being raised right about what it means to be a raver, so they think its a dope party.
i bet you guys dont like dubstep do you considering it is revolved around drugs dirty bass and gettin retarded!
