It just occurred to me that the flourishing of psytrance in Israel in the '90s kind of coincided with the escalation of the US violence in the Arabic countries. Has anyone else noticed that? And notwithstanding the situation, few, if any, Israeli tracks seemed to address what seems to me and many other people an injustice. Moreover, the popularity of that Astral Projection track with a stupid Bible quote re: creationism has always buffled me. Then it only got worse, with gun-brandishing Skazi, Infected Mushroom, etc. and really ugly track titles and album covers by the latter, that seemed to undermine the very humanity of the people listening to this genre. (The claim to Infected Mushroom's outstanding contributions to the scene, which seems to be a very popular idea, is something I don't quite understand, either.) In general, I think that although some psytrance tracks seem to promote a more enlightened view of the world, the scene overall is largely hedonistically & narcissistically oriented. Any thoughts?
