The Schadenfreude Economy

Seriously though, how much popcorn.gif did you need just to get through that article about Camp White Guilt or White Bread or whatever at Burning Man getting vandalized? It's so adorable when the 0.1% feel like they're being taken advantage of by the 0.01%!

I don't understand why they were targeted. Apparently the camp was started by Paul fucking Oakenfold and the son of a Russian gangster, and what exemplifies the Burning Man ethos of arena trance and half-baked Trustafarian Socialism more than that? I assume miniature giraffes were provided to all of the glampers as soon as they got off the helicopter.

I sure hope there's a TED talk about this.

    Sweet hammocks, though.

    Yeah, I don't think the TED talks were about that: http://www.tedxblackrockcity.com No, really, they were about "intergenerational transfer of wisdom", for which I cannot summon the energy to snark about.

    Intergenerational transfer of social diseases is where Burning Man is at.

    This has gone on long enough. Time for another sternly worded letter.
