Didn't have strong hippie beliefs?
He was all about sex, drugs and rock and roll, free love and communal living.
He not only believed it, he lived it.
He is also an envirnomentalist who belives many people should be eliminated to save the "dying earth". He ecen mentioned in the first video how he was
sent to a nuthouse for trying to save trees.
I think not. As i said above, he hid behind the hippie culture. His sex, his drugs, his communal living was all a mechanism he used for control. He
would lure immature and naive young hippie girls into his orbit, and hence attract foolish young males. This was not hippie culture.
Hippie culture grew out of the beat culture in SF. Before the mainstream began to glorify it the real hippies, the beats of Haight Ashbury actually
held a funeral party on Haight street to bury 'hippie'. They held a procession with a dummy corpse down the street to mark the end of the 'true hippie
in, I think it was 67 because they could see what was about to happen. That the mass interest, the mass media and all the songs would tantalize the
disenfranchised youth from across the nation to migrate to California and join in the party aspect of the hippie culture which, was not what being a
hipple was all about in the first place. Sadly I think that the phony history of hippies is just about all that remains.
Oh, PS. He was no environmentalist either. Just another part of his self glorifying act.
