Drugs (other then marijuana) were actually the downfall and major degenerating cause of the demise of what the original hippie movement was about.

The drug movment was actually a separate movement that just happened to coincide at the same time in the same area as the political movement started by 4 college students.

Losers and drug addicts are - - losers and drug addicts. They are not Hippies. Not in the true sense of what it means to be from that movement.

You all need to go read some history.

They were not dirty - but did try to be more natural by not using chemical soaps and stuff.

Nothing wrong with hippies.

They are fun to taze!

and the cryptofascist bill ayers and the weather underground who bombed police stations, court houses, military recruiting stations, and eventually themselves.


Ditto.

The crimes of Manson and his cult killed the movement and all those other window-breaking activist groups buried it 20 feet down.


you have been duped. the problem for the hippies is that nobody is buying their crap anymore.



About 'buying their crap'... guess what, we're not selling anything. We didn't then and never will. One either lives a particular kind of life that doesn't include hatred or stereotyping or one does not. Personally, I don't care how others live their lives as long as it doesn't make my own life completely unbearable. I'll choose friends that are pleasant company, thanks very much.

That's right. Especially certain crystaline drugs that made people crazy. Drugs of those sorts were avoided by those who had two brain cells to rub together.

Nobody really understands what happened in such a short time. Music, philosophy and a large contingent of WWII veterans' children somehow were presented with a unified thought... that of togetherness and a gutteral dislike of the Viet Nam war. From those early days, millions of others came in to join in the fun... but that's all it was... just fun. They thought it was a toga party and everybody could go all Dionysian and get wasted.

That's why the movement didn't last long... above ground
We're still here, we still feel the same way and have passed on our ideals to our children. You can squash a hippie, but you can't kill an idea.

John Lennon... here's to you. We still love you. Imagine.

sorry, pal. your ideology has blinded you.

the manson family, the weather underground, SDS, bernardine dohrn, valerie solanis, bill ayers and all of their freak friends simply epitomized and now symbolize the hippie culture, along with the widespread use of illegal drugs. all these avowed criminals did was act on what the rest of the hippies were preaching - fighting "the man", "fighting the power", "burn baby burn", referring to law enforcement officers as "the pigs", as in "off the pigs", or just "Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out" by using illegal drugs and dropping out of productive society, ostensibly right before you come back to town and start murdering people.

the 60s and the "hippies" have become transparent. People aren't buying into the lies and hypocracy anymore.

Obviously, you're no 'pal' of mine, so leave the sarcasm in your head and not in my face. Thanks.

That was NOT the counter-culture. They used it as a vehicle, just like American mercenary companies pretend to be the American Military. They were and are posers.

Yup... that's the weather underground alright. They certainly didn't preach peace, did they? Therefore, they weren't hippies, they were posers who took over the movement just like Republicans took over the Tea Party. Where are THEY now?



"Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out" by using illegal drugs and dropping out of productive society, ostensibly right before you come back to town and start murdering people.


You're blinded by your own hatred of something you hardly understand. The language you use proves it. If you're going to start quipping Leary, btw, then you'd best be a bit more concise in your criticism of him, because you are WAY off the mark, imho.


the 60s and the "hippies" have become transparent. People aren't buying into the lies and hypocracy anymore.


Don't see that at all... in fact, I see the continued resurgence of our values reaffirmed year after year, especially in popular music. The movement never died. The simple-minded Dionysians of the world are still a drug addled mass of anti-hippies and I think your concept of what we stand for is as skewed as a Ford F150 on a drifting ice floe. Say hi to the polar bears.

LOL

it's interesting to see now how the elderly hippies of a dead age are trying to justify and excuse the cultural hatred they preached and the sordid, immature, pseudointellectual and morally bankrupt propaganda they so childishly brandished in their salad days.

the whole argument now that "if it was bad in any way, then it was not of the hippies" is an illogical and patently ridiculous rebuttal to documented historical occurrences and figures. sixth grade kids understand that the hippie generation birthed charlie manson and the rest of the psychopaths that were such popular figures to the "counterculture".

about this, there is no doubt. the facts can not be denied. and actually, i feel sorry for the hippies on here and out there in the world that so desperately want to excuse and justify their drug addled antics of their adolescence. it is really pathetic and pitiful.

the only change the hippies brought to the world was bad. I really do feel sorry for you people. the only saving grace is the corruption these people bred is now relegated to the dustbin of history.

about my "sarcasm", too bad. get used to it. it's right there in your face, and its not going anywhere. you get no political correctness from me.

Maybe not, but I WILL demand civility.


BTW... is Sarah Palin your idea of a Tea Party member or is she just using it as a vehicle? Manson and his bloodlust and desire for a 'Race War' *hawk/spit* make just about as much sense.

Your mistake is that you assume that everybody who had long hair in the 60's and 70's was a hippie. You are looking at Google Images pictures of whichever group and you see people with long hair, so they must be carrying the "Hippie Message" with their violent ways. Right?

The problem is that, as has been so eloquently explained to you already, those were not hippie values. Those people were not hippies. they were terrorists with long hair who were active during the hippie era. End Of Story.

Combine some education with your intelligence and you will do just fine young padwan.

Yeah, right. I wonder how long until they go all "Lord of the Flies" and someone gets hit in the head with a boulder.

yeah. that hippie mecca california is going gangbusters, right? the progressive hippie eden has finally gone bankrupt. they finally ran out of other peoples' money to spend. maybe they can put down the bongs, file chapter 11 and just go away.

nah. with the woodstock and haight-ashbury crew, they'd eventually give birth to a charlie manson, who could cut their guts out and then go run away into the desert to play acoustic guitar and dance with flowers in his stringy unwashed hair.

The hippie problem can be solved by Eric Cartman. Just give him the tools





But seriously. It comes from psychophant, pro-terror-war Republicans. Basically every guy you hated in high school. Currently driving an SUV or Truck that is so big, I can't find my little Mazda in parking lots anymore. They drive these vehicles because something ELSE they have isn't very big.

Hippies are basically overgrown children who want to avoid responsibility at all costs because that would require growing up and actually being an adult.


Hippies are naked Libertarians. The care only about their own independence.

Nice, but I like my idea better.


Thing is, someone stronger will be there to take everything they have. Someone with weapons and the will to use them. Next thing the hippies will know, they well be used as hog fodder to support my bacon addiction.

California? My, my, we are getting into the microcosm here, aren't we. News to you, my friend... it didn't just happen in America, it was everywhere in the western world.

Here's a hint... we, the ones who actually LIVED during that time, are the sons and daughters of WWII veterans. Our fathers, mine included, were forever changed by that conflict and, although they didn't say much about the experience, they said enough to influence us to be against the war... any war. That's the main theme.

To be a hippie was to basically be anti-war.

I still am.
