I’ve always taken Radical Inclusion very personally because I’m convinced that, if it weren’t for Radical Inclusion, I never would have been let into Burning Man. You didn’t know me back then: somebody would have said “I don’t know about this guy. Is he reaaaaally one of us?” Instead they said “Welcome Home.”
Done right, Radical Inclusion is the engine that keeps our creative energies going year after year – and is frequently uncomfortable. If it’s not at least a little uncomfortable from time to time, you’re probably just playing with the people you’d hang out with outside of Burning Man, and what good is that?
