Educating the masses.

Post by capnjonny » Thu Oct 10, 2019 3:28 pm

I know everyone here is a dyed in the wool SERIOUS Burner who would never think of bringing moopy shit out to the Burn or in any way betray the ten principles -------


Every year so many newbies show up at our campout who didn't get the memo about being good citizens that maybe we should try to educate them.

I am proposing a new volunteer group that will roam the endless line of cars waiting to get to Gayte . Sort of like Jehovah’s witnesses but dressed casual like . These folks will stop at random vehicles and quiz the occupants about "proper" Playa etiquette, fielding questions and dispensing wisdom about how our choices have consequences.

Perhaps adding this new level of awareness education can help everyone clean up their playa Karma .

The preliminary census shows virgins significantly down. It only takes a small number of MOOPers to cause a problem. But if virgins are down and MOOP up, we may have a very serious problem: veteran MOOPers. Ditto, 447 MOOPers.

Good do-ocracy plan to do! I would guess the powers that be would like to facilitate that.

I think we should have actual Jehovah's Witnesses in line at Gayte.

It never hurts to remind people where they're headed in the afterlife.
