Poseurs huh Really i think they just grew up and couldn't hold the same dream of living out of a suitcase while selling mushrooms for a living but they kept the white guilt over the whole civil rights thing. And like i said took over the democratic party

My older sister was part of the hippie generation - even ran away to California in the late 60s.
However, most 'hippies' were only weekend hippies and led the 'straight life' during the week - in other words, poseurs. They were around mostly for the drugs and getting laid and weren't remotely interested in the protests or challenging authority.
It's the poseurs, and the sell-outs that have taken over.

Problems existed long before hippies. Ask your grandparents if politicians were just as crazy then as they are now. Ask them if our country has been through financial troubles before....
