Re: The Dirty F@**king Hippies Were Right!
Most hippies are now your CEOs, just FYI. They're now our senators, et cetera and they're just as apathetic and self-centered while saying everything is "groovy, just let it slide" as they were when they were smoking pot and doing acid in their parents basement.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1151054


...don't know where you're getting your info from man, but for those of us who WERE "Hippies" nothing has changed... and we are NOT running corporations.... most have dropped off the grid, and did so many, many years ago...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1257789


The Hippies were an offshoot of the Beatniks, and were called the Hippies because they were into all the things that were "hip" at the time. (Beatniks coining the word "Hip") when the Hippie movement died off, where do you think most of you went? California isn't the holy land, my friend. Most of the Hippies of yesteryear are the suited boardroom walkers of modern years. They work for Haliburton, they work for Dick Cheney, they work for George W. Bush.

What the Hippies preached has been twisted into a self-gratifying apathy that further degrades our world than improves it. Free love has become fuck-everything-that-moves then leave the STD-laden pregnant underage girl to fend for herself. It's become "let it slide, man, everything's groovy" to an apathy where no one gives a damned about another's plights and people only think about what they want.

The Hippie movement failed, like Communism. Another relic of the past that regurgitates every now and then to cover something in bile.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Republican, nor do I vouch for "the man", and I actually love most 60's music. I just dislike every toasted-head burned out pudding brain telling me everything's just gravy when my life falls to shit around me, acting like the Hippies were all some grand-ideal race of dying elves. Nothing is gravy, go back to your pot and acid.

Yeah, I just LOVE that raised bed gardening. No digging, hardly any weeds and a lot less bugs. You can grow stuff real close together so you can feed a whole family with just a tiny space!

The home grown veggies and fruit taste great and they have VITAMINS in them - studies show the mass-produced supermarket stuff has hardly any vitamins at all... you might as well be chewing cardboard.

No wonder everyone's so apathetic and sickly.

...we'll show you how it's done.

Two important things:

1. Ditch the anger. It's what THEY want. They will use it to manipulate you. Don't walk into that trap.

2. Look out for the other guy. If you look out for your community, the community will look after you.

Set aside the differences. Work together. The results can be amazing.
 Quoting: Intentionally Blank


As a child of the '50's... I used to hear a term often, "nuclear family"... isn't that ODD?

What was before that?

INTEGRATED FAMILIES and Communities. They cared for one another. THAT is what got them through the "Great Depression." My parents were that Generation.

A "nuclear family" makes me think of blowing UP the family cohesion. When that happens the community falls apart too.

I'm old enough to remember when everyone's mom knew your mom like in the small town I grew up in. And every one of those Mothers ratted out their kids' friends.

We ran around our small community of 20,000 or so day and night on bikes, skateboards, and cars and no one was hurt or troubled...

Sounds idyllic, and in a sense it was... but we can have that again because it was the desire of the community to care for the community that made it that way.

It is said that mankind's greatest talent is adapability. Fortunately this principle in inherent in much of creation, giving us both tools and materials to fashion our reality however we choose.

Interesting theory. Haven't heard that one before. But maybe it backfired? From the Beatles and Grateful Dead to Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters... some of the great hippy movements of the day were LSD inspired.

I have to strongly agree with this poster.

The 1960's were as much about the socially engineered destruction of what it was to be an "American", which is to say, family structure and social-bond oriented achievement, as it was about "enlightment". What most people got sold was the "me generation mantra"... laying the groundwork for the following three generations.

The ones running things were never hippies. They were just on the margin trying to be cool, living a fad for a summer or two before graduating and getting on the treadmill to worldly success. They only dressed up like hippies, did drugs, listened to the music and went on the free love trip to fit in, but they never lived the hippie lifestyle.

I know hippies.

Just like rastas, some are monks and some are thieves and most fall in between.

If you guys don't see how the hippies were played to act as the catalyst for undesirable social change then I'm not sure I can fully explain it to you on a forum.

In a nutshell, take a whole bunch of well meaning people with good core ideas... take a bunch of agent-provacatures who make it into a feel-good drug culture, and then you've got the 1970's.

Then, take the lessons you have taught those people and convert it through advertising (all psychedelic advertising notice btw leading into the current neuro-marketing) into consumer culture.

Done and done. It's a pretty straight line. That's not to say the "real hippies" you are talking about haven't done good, but just about everything with popular appeal gets hijacked by the social engineers. They're willing to work their plans over 20-30 years, it's hard to notice in a single human life time if you are caught up in it.
