This link shows a grainy video of a “rave” in Iran. Having never attended a “rave” myself, I can only compare this video with those of raves depicted by the media here int he U.S. and I must say, I’d rather go to a rave where the main attraction is a fire-dancing person than one where the main attraction is drugs. Not that I don’t believe there was alcohol and other illicit materials somewhere on the premises of the rave in Iran; I just think that the music, the freedom of self-expression, the freedom to practice one’s art (especially since the fire-dancer was a female) are the bigger draws at the rave in Iran than raves here in the U.S.
It is scenes like this one that make me so concerned for humanity at large; how can anyone view this video and not see fellow human beings have a much-needed, stress-relieving great night at a party?
I suppose I’m just too decadent in my worldview. . .
