We need the values and principles of Black Rock City now more than ever.

Post by torrey.smith » Wed Nov 09, 2016 10:49 am

Well here we all are.

Divided, conquered. Diced up into little interest groups and set falsely against each other.

Set against each other by an establishment so arrogant and so blind that it couldn't stop a buffoon on an opportunistic rampage.

So what do we do now?

I look towards a city on a hill. (flattest hill I've ever seen!)

A city born of love and pragmatism. A city of hard work, humor and generosity.

A celebration of human potential and accomplishment.

Black Rock City.

So how do we do this? How do we take this wisdom and share it?

How do we share the genius of a city where the rednecks party with the hippies?

Where we see first the humor of our differences, before we realize they are illusions.

We have our work cut out for us. We may need to build this city bigger. We may need to build more than one.

Let's Build This City!

Hey Torrey, Half the country is butt-hurt this morning. If you REALLY want to promote the values and principals why say...

It's over. Now is the time to quit all the name calling and finger pointing. If you're pissed take to the streets with a big sign.

I was kinda hoping for more kittens and less animosity. I endorse neither candidate.

Certainly, but butthurt is not a BRC principle or value. That can be voiced elsewhere, even here in the politics thread.

I think it's hilarious watching all the self-righteous Hillary people who thought that bitch had it in the bag all freaking out.
Sure Trump is... well he's Trump, but look at the bright side. It's not Hillary!!
At least for that, celebration and merriment is in order!!

The special snowflake safe space trigger warning socialist/communist politically correct entitlement peeps that are bitching and protesting this election are the most intolerant group of people I have ever seen. Time to grow up and grow a pair.

You clearly didn't go down the big slide in 09.

Butthurt was definitely indoctrinated.
