Apparently my powers of comprehension have failed and for this reason I qualified my statement to indicate that I may have misunderstood you.Spectabilis wrote:most of the people you are referring to realize that various laws and legal proceedures apply universally throughout the united states. but people often loose sight of this in the immediate context of burningman due to the nature of the event. its a natural human tendency to adapt to an environment, especially within a confined one with an exciting culture that is very different, while simultaneously under constant reinforcement to new social rules and rituals.
I read this to mean that people lose sight of rules that existed prior to burning man once at burning man (burning man summarized as everything is turned on their head).

So, my question to you fellow-Burners is, "Are we ready to evolve to another location?" It is clear to me that Nevada does not welcome the Burning Man event, despite the long running negotiations and permits.
Any comments or thoughts are welcome.
Does anyone know if this bit about land in Austin, TX is true? I'd love to see some back up information or have a reference... I might just piss my pants if this is true. Though, I would miss the playa dust... but my lungs might not... hmmm. hahaha
I'd think not. I don't thing the LLC has enough cash to be getting into land deals.
Of course, there are those who add up the reciepts without looking at the expences, and conclude that the LLC is rolling in it, but they've never convinced me.

This is a free fucking country. Let's take it back, at the ballot box, by speaking up, by writing our elected representatives, by attending rallies.
The Drug War is an abomination, and un-American. Just like the ending of slavery, the onset of women's suffrage, the end of Jim Crow, and the ongoing struggle to recognize gays are equal citizens and humans, we'll win this one in the end.
If you hear someone saying oh he was stupid he shoulda known better, you're just listening to some poor soul who has bought into the drug war.
No one deserves to get busted.

We all know that you are just jealous that we have 2nd amendment rights and no state income tax
I am so happy that I was able to escape the Peoples Republic of California.
