ANGIE SPEAKS, EPISODE 13
The History and Politics of Rave Culture
As Margaret Thatcher’s reign ushered in the current neo-liberal order and dismantled the old consensus in the United Kingdom, a Dionysian counter-culture of revelry arose in the chaos, bringing with it self-organization, independence, and an embrace of pleasure.
Angie examines the birth of Rave Culture, the state repression that came against it, its political possibilities, capitalist subversion of its revolutionary potential, how the left can learn from it, and what might come next.
