Starting out among the most marginalized in Jamaican society, Rastafari vociferously rejected and condemned the political and social establishment, which reacted by branding the members of the movement as a criminal or lunatic fringe. However, over the years, the relationship between Rastafari and Jamaican society has gone through a series of changes that have facilitated the entrenchment of Rastafari in Jamaica. In this respect, the relationship has moved from resistance and repression to accommodation and assimilation, and eventually to cooptation and commodification.
