♪ Fight — for your right — to pa~rty! ♪

Sorry about all the angsting about the Utah rave thing. I identify with the PLUR folks, although an angry and rebellious part of me thinks that those SWAT guys kicking that girl should have died. ("The police supposedly found "weapons"; why weren't those used to defend their owners' rights?" my inner anarchist asks.) bluerain made a wonderful nod to those kinds of sentiments, and it helped me calm down. Even though I've calmed down, I think I should be angry. We have a constitutional right to party! Don't believe me? Read for yourself:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

And what is a peaceful assembly but a party? In conclusion, I declare that the Beastie Boys' "Fight For Your Right (to Party)" is now a political action song for my generation because of this event. Alright, I'm going to queue up some postmodern slogans now.

Thomas Jefferson can dance.
If we criminalize partying, only criminals will have parties!

You know what's worse than recreational drug use? Militant Authoritarianism.

The U.S. Government is in our base, killing our mans!
