Where, for the simple price of admission, anyone can purchase 7 days of a product called 'freedom'. It is not like the film West Word - it IS the film West World.
To face what Burning Man is, is to face the harsh & stark demand for the what it is supplying: Freedom to the slaves, in a neat week-long holiday package.
This would be fine if the product was honestly packaged by the supplier; the company that produces the event. Rather than admitting that what they're selling is a packaged version of a lifestyle owned by freed slaves, the company sells it as the lifestyle itself... This is the offense this is Burning Man.
Q: What is Burning Man? A: John Law was right.
