At first glance, Americans for Tax Reform President, Grover Norquist, seems like an unlikely choice for Burning Man. The man does go to work every day in our nation’s capital wearing a suit and tie. And yet, Norquist sees a parallel between the principles behind the Burning Man event and the small-government, low taxes, Libertarian ideals that guide his mission. That’s because Burning Man’s Black Rock City is run with relatively low governance and interference during the seven day event.
But let’s not kid ourselves, when it comes to outward appearances, Norquist is still radically different from the average Burner. In a video exclusive, Fusion’s Cleo Stiller followed Norquist around as he gifted lip balm, Nutella and Cuban cigars to the locals.
