The Dionysian Wave

I have noticed that, for some reason, over the past decade or so, it has become increasingly fashionable to insult someone by calling them a "hippie".
It seems to me that "hippies" were all about peace, love, and understanding their fellow man. Why is this considered so bad? Why all the hate on "hippies"? Unless "some people" wanted others to think that the power of love is a joke and ineffectual....what better way to do it than to try and a "laughingstock".
We are so many people insulting of "hippies", but those who start and fight in wars are considered "heroes"?

Hippies are walking human turds.
They are all about emotion without paying any attention to reality, fact, or intellect.
Hippies are basically overgrown children who want to avoid responsibility at all costs because that would require growing up and actually being an adult.
