Thanks to Laughing Squid for posting this. Their rules are “don’t be a dick”, which is funny because I’m in New York City right now. The rules here are more like “be who you are meant to be”, more than “be a wussy who conforms to all the other hippies”, which is more of a San Francisco thing. And don’t even get me started on “you’re not a real Burner unless you obey our Ten Principles, and our hundred other rules, and anyone who came to Burning Man before there were Ten Principles doesn’t get it and isn’t a real Burner”. You know who you are, and if you don’t, just wait til your thirtieth birthday, maybe you’ll find yourself then.
While part of me agrees with the sentiments expressed here, there’s another part of me that thinks you’ll never make an omelette if you set out with a goal of avoiding egg-breaking…
If you never have anyone give you crap then you’re not getting anything done.
Yes, this is a good campaign. It will help to lead to further legislation that makes sit illegal to hurt someone’s feelings. Your rights end where my feelings begin. There isn’t enough political correctness in the world.
BTW, most of the so-called art at Burning Man is actually crafts and construction, and otherwise uninspired and unoriginal.
