Elimate...THE GINGERS!

They can't handle the sun's rays anyhow, and seeing all those freckles is a major turnoff to all the well tanned burners.

I am in favor of removing radical-inclusion under ONE condition... ..a board of exclusion is created and I am its chairperson.

i read once that the best way to tell what a politician stands for is to ask them the Three (3) things they would do if they were a dictator..

so, in no particular order (because if i was a dictator theyd be excluded anyways)

EXCLUDE:

people who would sign up for shifts and be able to rationalize not showing up (without showing up to say they arent gonna do it)

people who sign up for shifts and are too drunk/fucked up to carry them out/walk straight when they do show up

people who seem to want to kill themselves at burning man by ingesting cases worth of robotussen and booze...putting an enormous strain on the rangers/medical/campmates




HOORAY my life at burning man gets better... instantly!!!

Nah, those leather-skinned "tan" Burners just can't accept that a pale ginger always looks younger & prettier than them.


Not that I'd worry, I'm a ginger in an RV- double negative, so I'm okay.

Seriously, since you started this most revealing thread, who would you exclude(or not include, that sounds better), and what would it accomplish?

Actually, I think that only noobs should be admitted to BRC each year...no vets permitted! Now, that's an event I'd like to attend (but I wouldn't get to because I'm a vet.)...what a condum...I mean conundrum...

I don't feel excluded for not having a ticket yet.

But, there were some posts not related to the ticket fiasco revealing some stimuli for the 10 Principles that were more pragmatic than idealistic. Like Decommodification. Someone mentioned how BLM wasn't going to allow a big free for all marketplace on Federal Land and so was born "Decommodification". In that context, it's less about realizing some post-materialist societal imperative and simply establishing a norm that allows the event to take place.

I always read Radical Inclusion as a way to remind participants to not be dicks to people that they might not otherwise hang around.

Anyway, I am warming to the idea that I might not attend in 2012. I'm staying the course and will avail myself of every option remaining ... outside of scalpers. Is there a little hesitation/contemplation about being a virgin in BRC with the current state of affairs? To a certain extent, I think so. Do I care what people think? Hell no! So in the spirit of Radical Inclusion, don't be dicks to virgins in 2012 and Radical Inclusion is in effect! haha

The idea of decommodification was purposeful not a consequence of Federal burecracy. Larry Harvey has said many times over the years in talks and interviews, etc. that the idea was for people to be able to interact without the typical commercial buyer/seller relationship and he hoped this would lead to more meaningful interactions between people....


PS - The BLM is so not opposed to free for all wanton capitalism on Federal land.... Look at their policies on and their ludicrously low fees for mining, logging, etc. BLM is verryyy supportive of commercial activity on public property...

Try looking for food vending on blm land. I only found one place, in Imperial County, I think, that had it and you had to take your cart/trailor off of public land once every five days for cleaning. So it's very different from, say, Curry Village in Yosemite.

@oneeyeddick - You can split hairs on radical inclusion all day long if you like, some argue that it was out the minute they started charging for tickets. Or for that matter, holding the event in the middle of nowhere. In a world of scarcity, I read radical inclusion as being everyone has a chance to get a ticket and participate.

@Lord Of Ruin - I agree, and I'd like to see a high percentage of new burners too. I've only been participating since 2004, so I missed all the years where the event had doubled in size and 50% of the people in BRC had never been to Burning Man before. By all accounts, the event did not suck before 1997 ('96 was the last year it doubled).

@dragonpilot - you may actually be the very first person who's suggested an excluding a group of people that would also exclude them from participating. Selfless and refreshing, and it would certainly be an interesting experiment, but I'm glad we all have a chance to go.

That is pretty much what I thought it was supposed to mean also, but I, of course, have a really hard time following through with this jesture of kindness.

haha indeed.

radical inclusion means you can bring your really godawful

Well, as long as your heart is in the right place ... or at least somewhere, then I am sure it's fine! lol

As long as Radical Chicanery is still a Principle, there's really nothing to worry about. That's a Principle, right?

Radical inclusion my ass. Most of the proposed "solutions" to the fiasco by long time burners include some method of awarding tix to theme camps, long time burners, artists, etc.

Everyone seems to have the attitude that they earned the right to be there, and that poor noobs certainly won't make for a good Burning Man all by their lonesome. If part of the grand experiment is to see just how temporary the temporary community will be, I say let it all play out. I'd love to see what an event would look like with ~40% completely new burners.

LoR



Theme camps ARE Burning Man. They deserve to be there more then virgins do because they DO more to make the event what it is.

I am not a theme camper BTW.
