Any (Current of Former) Burners Here?
« on: September 04, 2023, 08:53:24 PM »
I've never understood the appeal of Burning Man. It seems like an event for self-entitled tech bros to get high for a week and act all-important.

A well intentioned gathering that has lost its way a bit over time.

Coachella also hasn't been cool for years.  The corpos and dorks trying to look cool show up, and the cool kids move on.

You’re not wrong for the last 10 years or so.

Used to be a hippie gathering - until the rich, white bros destroyed it the way they destroy everything that is good.

I bet you also miss the 'good old' days of no women or people of color in positions of power in public corporations.

Has any group historically suffered as much as white American males have since Obama got elected?
