“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Rich people not welcome at Burning Man

The popular Burning Man festival takes place in Nevada's Black Rock Desert where 70,000 young people, mangy has-been hippies, and drug users from casual to hard-core, gather to listen to music and ponder a utopia, stated as based oddly on "radical self-reliance", in love and harmony through music....blah blah blah...gag me!
Predictably Hollywood has taken notice and many rich celebrities and .com billionaires drop in by helicopter or SUV caravans and pitch air-conditioned tents with full-time chefs, armed security, and DJ's......not exactly the egalitarian experience the purists prefer.

So what's a dirty hippie to do but engage in micro-revolution against the "rich parasites". Hooligans trashed camps of the rich and famous, cut electricity cables, stole their expensive food, and otherwise ruined their trip.
Heh heh, for once I'm siding with the celebrities.
