I'm looking forward to seeing this 'strategy' for dealing with turnkey camps! I've got my own brown shirt if that helps.

from the SF Guardian.


i've taken the liberty of replacing the words "San Francisco" with the words "Burning Man."


It isn't as if Burning Man hasn't seen a tech boom before. Burning Man's dotcom boom of 1998 to 2001 also led to significant displacement in Black Rock. But this latest one is focused on the city and visibly changing it faster. Many long-time Burning Man residents worry not only about being forced out of the city they love, but also that their city is being changed for the worse. Critics say that Burning Man's communities of alternative culture, ethnic or otherwise – the soil of its creative mojo and legendary social movements – are being turned into playgrounds for rich people. If Burning Man's soul is its social and economic diversity and status as a refuge for those outside the mainstream, then it is being lost.

Emerging in its place is the mostly white, male-dominated, monied monoculture of the tech industry and there appears no end in sight.

Another argument in the "Burningman is like the Bohemian Club" analogy.

"Harvey spoke about the festival's global ambitions. Burning Man is guided by what initiates call the Ten Principles: Radical Inclusion, Gifting, Decommodification, Radical Self-Reliance, Radical Self-Expression, Communal Effort, Civic Responsibility, Leaving No Trace, Participation, and Immediacy. These ideas, Harvey suggested, might one day form the basis of a new world order: Burners have helped revitalize downtown Las Vegas and met with members of the Australian government. "We're planning for a hundred years," Harvey told the crowd. "If we can govern the way we want, then what we've all experienced"—at Burning Man—"will become a very common experience." He concluded that "when the world comes to a crisis—and we know it's coming"—that's when the Burner knowledge will come in handy.

Oh great, now I have visions of Dr. Demento ringing through my head. Fish Heads. Dead Puppies. The Vatican Rag. Saint George and the Dragonet. Green Xmas. Pico and Sepulveda. Hello Mudda, Hello Fatha. Ahhhhh, God please, make it stop. Where's that damn shotgun when I really need it.
