In 1986 to Barker beach, San Francisco, some 20 people attended the cremation of a man, wood, simply in honour of the summer solstice. It is actually as well as Burning Man began his debut. Who would have guessed that this event would become with time a real festival of diversity, pleasure and mutual assistance, with almost 50,000 people. Today, these many thousands of people across the world come celebrate together in the Nevada desert, bringing with them works of only temporary also beautiful arts, personal gifts and mainly, their own individuality. The festivities lasted a week full during which we find a crazy amount of imagination, love and life. All is however intended to disappear completely by the end of the event, leaving no other trace that engraved in the hearts of the participants.
First, one of the main philosophies of the Burning Man festival is the promotion of a "radical expression of itself", let go of his individuality and foster personal confidence and acceptance of differences and peculiarities of others. At Burning Man, the terms "bizarre", "abnormal" and "yuck, what is it?" simply don't exist. In the unveiling of an atypical body or a work of art out of the ordinary, the expression remains one of the main reasons for the festival. We also find all kinds of people, old, young, big, thin and of all colors. Advocates diversity and must have an incredible openness to consider to attend such an event. The values transmitted by Burning Man tend to accompany the Festival beyond the event, even up to influence his life and his way of perceiving the world around him. The participants of the festival attempt among other continue to live in harmony with their individuality as well as to promote a positive attitude toward others. This openness is something to prioritize in the life of every day and is certainly one of the most favourable attitudes in which appeal to humanity, because with this acceptance of self and his entourage, man can actually come into contact with his environment. It is this kind of behaviour and attitudes which diminish prejudices and animosity between the men.
Another dominant aspects of Burning Man is the involvement of all in the same project, creating a real feeling of belonging and community. Some 50,000 participants must participate actively in the realization of the great project that is the Burning Man event. It invites festivalgoers to contribute to the artistic network in demonstrating superb works of arts that can take the form of decorated bicycles, extravagant costumes or any other kind of artistic expression. Individuals are also called to demonstrate generosity and mutual assistance in helping a neighbor with the Assembly of his tent for example. What are these personal contributions so that the participants have the sense of belonging in the group because each individual between in Burning Man with this approach, this same desire to be part of this huge community and participate in something bigger than him. This attitude ensures that everyone involved in the event, everyone living fully and engages in the event of how active and not passive. There is also not this sense of "royalty" and the requirement that we contribute to return us favours or goods of equal value. There is also no monetary circulation throughout the festival and no money can be done "on the back" of Burning man. Indeed, as Rousseau said, "it has with money, apart from hearts and good citizens" #. Burning man, rather the sense of universality, this desire to contribute and that, in the end, the efforts of the other we will have done also grow there.
However, despite all the positive and all the good that can make Burning man in the lives of those involved, the event lasts one week in total. True, during this week, it is mutual, sharing and live full, happy to be part of this unique world that is the experience of the "burner". However, I believe that, over a longer period of time, the system would collapse. Actually, "where each, so to speak, is free to act at its discretion and to surrender to this licence, the confusion and disorder not slow to manifest itself from all sides" #. I believe that it is impossible for humans to remain completely altruistic and disinterested by his own gain. In the long run, we would begin to see the animosity appear
I think she did an excellent job.
