Please, I’d love to hear peoples’ thoughts on this.  Especially people who do NOT attend Burning Man or regional events.

  • What do you think of when you hear “The American Dream”? What does that mean to you?
  • This is the theme chosen for Burning Man this year, which is a counter-culture festival.  Whatever you know or don’t know about BM, how do you think this theme fits the event?
  • After you answer the first two, please read this description of the theme and it’s meaning for the event.  Does this change your viewpoint of the theme and how it fits the event?  

It’s a very controversial theme this year, even more so than the Green Man (environmental) theme last year.  The fire conclave group I joined asked our opinions about it, and I was curious what outsiders thought.  Please if you have a moment, share your opinion!! Thanks!
