Burning Man: America’s Largest Occult Festival Is A Celebration Of Weirdness And Hedonism

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

70,000 people have descended upon a very bleak stretch of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert for what is perhaps the largest celebration of hedonism on the entire planet. Burning Man has been described as a “dystopian hellscape“, and that description is not too far from the truth. From August 25th to September 5th (Labor Day Monday), revelers from all over the world will dance, carouse and “express themselves” in a temporary city that has been created entirely by its citizens. This festival is part Mad Max, part Woodstock and part Eyes Wide Shut, and many “Burners” look forward all year long to these eight days of completely unrestrained hedonism.

30 years ago, Burning Man began as a small beach gathering in San Francisco. Initially held during the Summer Solstice, it quickly took on a life of its own and was moved to Nevada in 1990. Ever since then, this eight day party has not stopped growing, and people literally fly in from all over the world to witness one of the most bizarre spectacles in America.

To say that Burning Man is “weird” would not be doing it justice. In this very isolated corner of the Black Rock Desert, you will find nudists (lots of them), palm readers, neopagans, “ecosexuals”, witches, sorcerers, shamans, New Age gurus, “goddesses”, Satanists, “polyamorists” and just about every type of fetishist that you can possibly imagine.

The reason why the festival is called “Burning Man” is because of the gigantic effigy that is burned toward the end of the eight day celebration. Nobody is physically harmed during the burning of this enormous “wicker man”, but it does seem to parallel the human sacrifices that the Druids would do in ancient times. The following comes from Wikipedia

While other Roman writers of the time, such as Cicero, Suetonius, Lucan, Tacitus and Pliny the Elder, described human sacrifice among the Celts, only Caesar and the geographer Strabo mention the wicker man as one of many ways the Druids of Gaul performed sacrifices.[6] Caesar reports that some of the Gauls built the effigies out of sticks and placed living men inside, then set them on fire to pay tribute to the gods. Caesar writes that though the Druids generally used those found guilty of crimes deserving death, as they pleased the gods more, they sometimes used slaves and innocent men when no delinquents could be found.[7]

    “From August 25th to September 5th (Labor Day Monday), revelers from all over the world will dance, carouse and “express themselves” in a temporary city that has been created entirely by its citizens.”

    Right… and they will, no doubt, leave a horrendous mess behind when they leave that someone else will have to clean up. This is EXACTLY what happens in every city that hosts the Dem conventions and other leftist get-togethers. 🙁

    Big mess left behind…And every Olympic venue.

    About this ‘alarming story’?

    I think Michael Snyder would have been against WOODSTOCK (too much peace & love), and Snyder would probably be against every big concert…Lalapalooza, Woodstock-2, probably even against the Beatles (Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds), The Rolling Stones (Sympathy for the Devil), The Doors (I’m a Back Door Man), etc.

    Anybody who looks long & hard enough can eventually find SOMETHING to worry about in everything on the planet. He would have been a great “inquisitor”. Perfect mentality for it.

      My buddy who has traveled the world to every party spot has been 5 years in a row . This is the wildest thing he has every seen,a lot of very wealthy people attend bringing tractor trailers filled with their creations that have to be assembled and disassembled at the end.There is nothing like it. Craig you would love to see what mechanical things these people create. The Robot heart bus is like one of the most powerful sound systems built on a bus chassis to move it around. My buddy wanted me to go every year and I always viewed his 1000’s of pictures. There was a very strict code of honor and absolutely no mess was left behind. http://burningman.org/culture/philosophical-center/10-principles/
