BURNING MAN is just degenerates, freaks, and deadbeats says the web as 'Burners' seek to rationalize their naivete

Web comments about Burning Man:

"It's a complete joke of a festival..."

"Burning man, is that where adults get naked in front of other people, some of whom were dumb enough to bring their children?..."

"...that festival is nothing but a business that lures in idiot kids.."

"At the next Burning Man, they should have a Die-in so they can all collectively join him at once (and reduce global carbon emissions at the same time; win-win)."

"...because of this people have died from over doses of drugs,burned themselves alive,has spread venereal diseases and it just contributed to the lowering or debasement of the culture...needs more reasons?"

"Because the kind of in the moment, trivial, trite chemognosis that these people aim to attain is a farce..."

"For intelligent, non-echo-chambered, rational adults attending Burning Man, you will find the attendees to be very stupid, cult-crazed people who seem exactly like Airport Moonies, or Scientologists or Rajneesh Cult members.

"..70% of the people there are mentally ill narcissists who want people to look at them because they are brain addicted to Facebook and desperately need to be looked at in order to have any sense of self-worth. This appears to be the new staging ground for people who will grow up to be dumb surfers or hookers..."

"This is the whitest festival I ever saw. There are no black people here. All of the hot Millennial chicks will screw anybody so inner city America really needs to drive up to The Playa and get the some Poon-Tang..."
