Spark: a new political platform

Our common foundation of universal love is the first determination in every connection. The assertion that each one of us is nothing more than another person creates a field of open interaction with the world.

Every human has the right to determine the limits of their connection. No government should have the capacity to deny contracts of commitment amongst peoples.

Any parties that wish to create a formal bond of partnership should be allowed to do so without undue boundary or social discrimination. This includes not only alternative marriages for couples and tribes, but informal commitments and contracts amongst communities, cities and nations.

These partnerships are only valid when there is no coersion or manipulation from internal or external sources. Each party must be allowed full freedom and autonomy at all times.

This platform of individual and group freedom sets precedent for all issues of ethnic, political, economic or sexual discrimination. Unnecessary boundaries should be replaced with common understanding.

In case anybody wants to get married at Burning Man 2004

I wanted to send a general message that I am legally certified to perform wedding ceremonies in Nevada, California, and Oregon and will available to perform legally binding wedding ceremonies on the playa, as well as "playa-legal" weddings, should anybody on the list want one. Nevada requires that the paperwork we taken care of in advance, so if a legally binding marriage on the playa is something anybody here desires, now is the time to begin filling out forms.
