Thought Police Ruin Burning Man Festival with Morality Regulations

Nudity at Burning Man incites morality ban.

Once, a long time ago, Burning Man was an event during the Labor Day Weekend to go to for people to unwind, dress in weird clothes, run around naked, party and express themselves through art, dance and culture — free of the restrictions that society has on us (see Wiki for details).  This was done innocently enough out in the vast, barren Black Rock Desert in Northern Nevada– away from offending the general public in cities.  But as the event’s popularity grew it no longer was a free event.  Instead, tickets began to be sold starting in 1995 at $35 per head.  Ticket prices then rose to several hundred dollars per person ($420 per head in 2012), along with other fees forced upon attendees.  All this came about after cash-hungry area officials decided it was time they got a cut of the popular festival’s $15 million revenue.  Now officials are banning acts of “obscene, indecent, vulgar or lewd” behavior at the event (public nudity and sex acts) — the very “expressions” that incited event attendance in the first place.  Burning Man organizers are angry about all the restrictions and fees being placed on them and plan to sue local government to get the morality restrictions stopped.
