This is exactly how I feel subjectively, because it would be better if I didn't have to deal with profiteers who gave not one single shit about the band, the fans, the charities, or the vision.

Objectively it's no different than buying something and selling it later. Buy low, sell high. To be sure, there are some dirt bags, but how can I blame somebody for monetizing their time in line?
