Larry Harvey talks politics. Apparently, Barlow’s words about Burning Man were not lost on Harvey (or he’s been thinking about this a while)

You don’t have to feel co-opted. You don’t have to say that things have got too big, that money talks. You don’t have to hide in a subculture and not speak to your neighbors. Big money doesn’t have the power to co-opt us. Arnold Schwartzenager’s not the man to tell us what to do. We can collectively express ourselves. Now, at the beginning of the 21st Century, we, united as San Franciscans, can teach the United States of America what it can become. And, hey, I’m not even a Green, but I’m voting for Gonzalez on December 9th.
