30 mins into Fyre Festival and this was the most obvious scam ever. These conmen are always the same, make a big promise that is obviously a lie, and repeat it until the gullible believe it & buy in big. Fyre, Trump, Bernie, crypto ICOs in 2018, credit card scams, same concept.
People are desperate to believe that it is easy, that they can be rich or have the time of their lives while giving nothing. Reality is its not easy, but the dream is like a cheap high. Once you shoot up you don't want hear "no." You think they're jealous or weakwilled.
Its why people fall for marketing scams, its why they lose everything gambling, its why fringe politicians in countries fading from prominence can lie about what's politically+economically possible and get massive praise for it. Nobody wants to eat their vegetables. Just candy
The best advice is be skeptical, do your research, be thorough, and ask hard questions. If they can't answer your questions clearly and directly, and it sounds too good to be true, trust your gut, its a scam. Whether its Bernie/Trump, a penny stock, or Fyre Festival
Ok the documentary is finished now. Scammers been doing this since the beginning of time. Every culture, every era, there's people like this.
