I mean, when the Man just shits all over everything, can you really be surprised when BLM is outraged?

It goes both ways. It always does with those people. On one hand that is the agency that sets permit fees and negotiation is a factor. Don't like the price? Boo hoo.

But they're also able to impose fines and arbitrarily raise rates. They have no accountability. It's the epitome of beaurocracy.

I totally thought this was going to be a rant against Black Lives Matter.

I don't really see the big picture issue here...

Hippies complain about rates raising, blm complains about environmental impact of hippies.

Hippies end up exploiting the lower tier hippies for more money, to cover costs. BLM is happy until next year when they raise the rates again and the whole cycle repeats itself until the hippies pony up and buy a chunk of land outright, like the hippies who run coachella did with the polo grounds.

I agree, my comment was just a poor attempt to build off the top quality lols your title generated.


On a real note, through, it seems like there's two ways to look at it. On one hand a private landowner would probably keep raising rent until they thought burning man would rather just close up shop, but on the other hand this is public land and they shouldn't be price gouging, just charging enough to keep the land in good condition.

Yeah I'm sort of against both parties in this situation. I just liked the lulz factor of the title.
