Is Burning Man a cult?

lt christianPeople who come back seem to have their own little in-jokes that no one else gets. I still don’t get it, and I don’t think it’s a cult.

lt vnesIt’s a cult-ure. It’s not a cult because there are no prerequisites, you go and you burn the way you want to burn. No one tells you how to burn.

lt karstenYes, it is a cult of many different personalities, like an electric Kool-Aid acid test.
