    Default Ravers Manifesto

    Our emotional state of choice is Ecstasy. Our nourishment of choice is Love. Our addiction of choice is technology.
    Our religion of choice is music. Our currency of choice is knowledge. Our politics of choice is none.
    Our society of choice is utopian though we know it will never be.
    You may hate us. You may dismiss us. You may misunderstand us. You maybe unaware of our existence.
    We can only hope you do not care to judge us, because we would never judge you.
    We are not criminals. We are not disillusioned. We are not drug addicts. We are not naive children...
    We are one massive, global, tribal village that transcends man-made law, physical geography, and time itself.
    We are The Massive. One Massive.

    We were first drawn by the sound. From far away, the thunderous, muffled, echoing beat was comparable to a mother's heart soothing a child in her womb of concrete, steel, and electrical wiring.
    We were drawn back into this womb, and there, in the heat, dampness, and darkness of it,
    We came to accept that we are all equal. Not only to the darkness, and to ourselves, but to the very music slamming into us and passing through our souls: we are all equal.
    And somewhere around 35 Hz we could feel the hand of God at our backs, pushing us forward, pushing us to push ourselves to strengthen our minds, our bodies, and our spirits.,
    Pushing us to turn to the person beside us to join hands and uplift them by sharing the uncontrollable joy we felt from creating this magical bubble that can, for one evening, protect us from the horrors, atrocities, and pollution of the outside world. It is in that very instant, with these initial realisations that each of us was truly born.
    We continue to pack our bodies into clubs, or warehouses, or buildings you've abandoned and left for naught, and we bring life to them for one night.
    Strong, throbbing, vibrant life in it's purest, most intense, most hedonistic form.
    In these makeshift spaces, we seek to shed ourselves of the burden of uncertainty for a future you have been unable to stabilise and secure for us.
    We seek to relinquish our inhibitions, and free ourselves from the shackle's and restraints you've put on us for your own peace of mind.
    We seek to re-write the programming that you have tried to indoctrinate us with since the moment we were born.
    Programming that tells us to hate, that tells us to judge, that tells us to stuff ourselves into the nearest and most convenient pigeon hole possible. Programming that even tells us to climb ladders for you, jump through hoops, and run through mazes and on hamster wheels.
    Programming that tells us to eat from the shiny silver spoon you are trying to feed us with, instead of nourish ourselves with our own capable hands.
    Programming that tells us to close our minds, instead of open them.
    Until the sun rises to burn our eyes by revealing the dis-utopian reality of a world you've created for us, we dance fiercely with our brothers and sisters in celebration of our life, of our culture, and of the values we believe in:
    Peace, Love, Freedom, Tolerance, Unity, Harmony,
    Expression, Responsibility and Respect.

    Our enemy of choice is ignorance. Our weapon of choice is information. Our crime of choice is breaking and challenging whatever laws you feel you need to put in place to stop us from celebrating our existence.
    But know that while you may shut down any given party, on any given night, in any given city, in any given country or continent on this beautiful planet, you can never shut down the entire party.
    You don't have access to that switch, no matter what you may think. The music will never stop. The heartbeat will never fade. The party will never end.

    I am a raver, and this is my manifesto.

    I am not disputing that.However ,what you posted was writing about it ,and it belongs in the writing forum.
    Many subjects are written about.This appeared to be almost a prose on this subject.

    If your friend wants to be a DJ, well then direct her to a hip-hop site where she can talk to DJs, because the ambition isn't enough, and that's the only thing most "wanna be" djs have.

    And from what I hear raves aren't as glorious as that piece of writing makes them seem. But whatever, never been there and don't really care for it.

    Since when did hip hop get into this.
    I don't remember anyone playing hip hop at a rave. Ever.

    DJing is one of the four elements of Hip-hop (bboying MCing DJing and graffiti), check out the wiki page it has a bit of info on it. Except some moron added beatboxing as an element and made it five elements, but that's bullshit.
    I'm not talking about meainstream hip-hop crap btw, we all know that shit has nothing to do with anything other than shit

    I told him to check a hiphop site because djing/turn tabling is one of the four elements of hiphop and usually you can find forums about djing on such sites. That's why i mentioned hiphop, it has nothing to do with the music. that's all =/
