at what point does burn out set in, and what happens when promoters start complaining they can’t compete with free?

#2 Deep Thoughts by "'E'SG" on 08.04.19 at 10:07 pm

When a government does something like this, it is called socialism. But what do we call it when the private sector does it? Perhaps, it should be seen as the bread crumbs of capitalism? But does private make it all right, or can it too weaken the soul through a growing dependency of wanting more and a developing entitlement?

Maybe I think too much and should just enjoy the music, but the next time you think about the $27 million for the railroad yard, the $1.5 million for the State Theater, TIFS in general, or the contractor’s gain from the Bunker Ramp, ask yourself if that is socialism too, and if so, why don’t we often say it that way? Unless, its because when private is big it is called capitalism, but when it helps the litte it is socialism, unless the source is big and must save face to perpetuate its own myth of entitlement and dominance, which thus further masks its own true dependency with price tags like 27 or 1.5 million dollars, TIFS, and unnecessary Bunker Ramps.

E’SG – you are in fact thinking about it too much. But I too tend to think about things too much too – but then do I really? Well my thoughts are on the Levitt are that it is a pleasant surprise to see a community event with so much participation. But I have noticed in my five participations in the event that the older crowd is “well-represented”. This is not bad as I am going to be one of them soon. But the 20-30 year olds are not there so much. Perhaps they are a few blocks away trying to “score” or just enjoying their youth.

Pancy, I would have to disagree, I have only missed about 3 Levitt concerts out of the 26 so far. The younger crowd is there, it’s just that most of them are pushing a stroller.

l3wis – maybe true and I did see that trend myself. I’ll try to avoid being a “negative pancy” next year. pun intended.

I was just playing off to scott’s inference to “free.”

And when you said, “‘score,'” where you referring to that hideous game called ‘Corn Hole?’ 😉

With the current ‘gun violence’ situation in both our country and our own community, I wonder how much security is present at the Levitt?

Is the SFPD concerned that this is what is referred to as a ‘soft target’?

They do have security officers at the events and SFPD on the weekends.
