As for art being banned, do you want to talk about a specific example, or is this just a hypothetical future possibility?
What is a "Direct Experience" and how is someone's "Direct Experience" interfered with at burningman? and what happens to burningman when art projects start getting banned from attending?

I'm not sure what parallel you're drawing here. Jiffy Lube was asked to
take their sign out of view of the general public because it (probably)
violated local Nevada laws. That was a law enforcement decision, and one
which I'm quite certain the participants would not have prevailed against
if they'd tried to take it to court.
As far as I know, La Contessa will not be driving the playa next year
because they engendered numerous complaints from participants.
That was a Burning Man organizational decision.
Is the question should people be allowed to anything and everything,
regardless of how it affects others?

The "organization" of Burning Man volunteers, just like you. There is a very small paid staff (around 20) that is mostly comprised of FT office and IT staff. The vast majority Senior and Junior staff members are unpaid but dedicated. Decisions like this are made by them, their volunteer teams, and their managers.
Especially this group... I love watching you pat each other on the back for your UNcreative responses.
