The front half of a black cat jumping across a purple background round button. My mom used to take us to peace marches, my brother and I had long hair (got threatened by some bullies at school to cut it), beatle boots, home-made bell bottoms (split with wild fabric inserts and india woven belt strap sewn along the bottom, and blue cambray shirts with red embroidered edging and designs stitched here and there. Black lights and black velvet posters embelished our rooms and we even listened to early dylan, pete seeger and other lyracists of the day.
I'm still alive, never did drugs, and loved every minute of experiencing it.
By the time of pop-art, muscle cars (68-72), and Manson and Jim Jones (real) hippies and the ideals had died off imho.


WOW! Cool story and life experiences up up

I think humans have made huge strides in the Peace, Love, Environment area's. It's just that the population has more than doubled in BILLIONS since the "hippy" movement. We hear about all the douche bag stuff going on because frankly, there are billions more douche bags! The US is all of those things in most places. The problem is that the earth is quickly running out of acreage to sustain this massive explosion of humans. Nearly 8 billion and counting. Everyone I know has kids. What happens when 16 billion are having kids in the next 50 years? I'm glad I will have turned to dust by then.

Yeah, the planet will still be around after all the humans have killed themselves off through their inability to manage themselves and control their own behaviours...

What was the question? Still don't understand what the OP was asking about...

Like free love and lots of drugs?

Not sure that all worked out like they thought it would.

The OP will need to be more specific in his question in order to have any hope of a meaningful discussion...

Yes its kinda weak, id like to post alot more but dont want to upset the mfic here.

When I posted the question I was thinking at some of the goals the org. batch of hippies strived for and in some ways they got it, some seem favorable, some not so much.

Of the four females in my wifes family (sisters) that were nearly dead in the mix, two went one way, two went the other. All successful in there life and profession but opposite in there views on life.

Two cry daily and the other two are pretty mellow and just roll with life no matter whats going on.

There we go, OC, stop being a goof and trying to get posts whacked, maybe the mods will just whack you for your instigating bs.

Really? Come on chief, you know that you started this entire thread with the intention of stirring s*** up. We've all read your posts and we're all aware of your record.

As far as "manning up" is concerned, I have nothing to prove to anyone.

Yeah, you know he posts an ambiguous question with no explanation or clarification in the post like anyone else is going to know what's going on in his mind, I post that I'm not sure if he knows what a hippie is, seeing as how there really aren't any hippies any more and I get called a dick. Go figure.

Whatever. I think most of us have seen him for what he really is.

@ quickBpBp.... lol. classic.

as for hippies.
i think as people get acquire wealth their views tend to change a bit. less likely to be into "burning the whole thing down" or some other extreme views. those hippies who might've been far our or extreme in the day or maybe just slightly progressive to slightly conservative these days..

WTH, I'm an old hippie. That's what everybody used to call me. laugh2

You just can't buy any good hallucinogens anymore. laugh2

Loc: Make America Rake Again
My wife was watching the oscars the other night and called me to check out how good jane fonda looked (with as much money that could be spent?).
Yep, 46 years later she still looks like the pos she was back then.
Patty Hearst story ow on tv a while back, she's in the same fold. Extremists (and drug culture) that affiliated themselves with the hippy way have no place with the ideals that brought forth the original movement.
I don't believe it came forth out of the bohemian lifestyle, or even gypsies.
With bartering, communal living, natural food, nature preservation, music and visual arts (and clothing and long hair). It was anti establishment.
I truly feel it more aligned with native american ideals and lifestyle (pre gambling).
