  • Critical Mass: Halloween

    Posted by Jonathan on November 1st, 2014 (All posts by )

    Lots of costumes. There must have been an accommodation with the powers that be, because now the ride gets escorted by the police, which no doubt makes it safer but also removes any remaining bits of transgressiveness from it. But who am I kidding. This is what tends to happen with popular illicit events in democratic societies. At first the authorities try to suppress it, then at some point everyone sees that the event has a large constituency and the pols attempt to coopt it. This time the ride got funneled into a food and music fest in the arts district. Maybe next year they will route it through the Orange Bowl. The whole sticking it to the man thing was a joke anyway, since most of the participants are only in it to have a good time.
