Burning Man... no longer just a festival

Burning man... no longer just a psychadelic desert festival full of LSD & surreal art.
Todays burning man is a political FU to the establishment,
retaining so much venom for the system, you decide to burn your self in effigy, 
sacrificing your own life in opposition to tyrannical measures which imprison us all.
End result being one of the strongest statements any individual can make, 
well, that and a pile of bone, flesh, & cinders some poor soul has to clean up.
I don't condone such activities, as similar to "everytime a bell rings, an angel gets its wings",
everytime an act of self-immolation makes the headlines, an elitist bears the grin of a cheshire cat.
With so many touting depopulation these days, you would only be doing them a favor.
But I'm sure for the few who witnessed the event, the image will forever be carved into their psyche,
so word to the wise, location is everything.
Unless your trying to leave the impression that you spontaneously combusted,
or auditioning for the latest Rammstein video,
make sure the leaders of the party you are opposing are present, or at the very least a camera man.

The latest act of death by self ignition gave new meaning to the phrase: 
when a New Hampshire man having returned home from war lost his entire family 
after making the unfortunate mistake of slapping his out of control child
 (which as we are aware is frowned upon by society this day in age
set forth before a courthouse, dousing himself in gasoline
and set his person aflame (can you imagine?)
luckily he left the world a 15-page explanation.

“I have 21 years of Army service going back to the Vietnam War. My loyalty to the government should be a given. It is gone. I am certain it will never return regardless of how long I might have lived.”

The act has obviously been overlooked & purposely ignored by lame-stream media,
as I'm sure they don't want such activities to start a trend for those who have nothing to lose.
Ironically the same media facets previously broadcast the tale of a Tunisian vendor
who in act of defiance torched himself in front of a government building to protest restrictions imposed upon his business . This event was the cannon fodder which originally lit the Arab uprisings in Egypt.

So the question is: 
why does such an act make headlines here when it occurs overseas, 
yet fails to be mentioned when it happens in our own backyard?
Cause it fails to fit an agenda, that's why!

p.s. for the truly brave, google images: self-immolation,
apparently these acts are far more common then I expected... warning: graphic!
