This article is stating 40 things that hippies were right about a few of the points they have listed are prominent trends in society such as

"6. Knowing where your food comes from is important", everyone is promoting buying local produce now a days. "13. Fair Trade." Companies like Starbucks and North Bay's vary now Twiggs now promotes fair trade coffee. And "28. Religious, sexual and gender acceptance" Gay rights is a big thing in todays society. 

 

This article relates directly to Public Relations as someone has done the research to find out what is trending within society, which is clearly, a new era and generation of hippies. Also, if someone was listening and communicating with the hippie generation at that time (1960's) perhaps problems we are facing as a society today like the number 1 one the list "make love, not war" would be non-existent.

'Mad Men' Gets Publicity It Couldn't Buy - 02/14/2012...

 

"The displays – which will probably stay up through the end of the month -- don’t scream “Mad Men.” Each window has a Draper portrait in black and white and this being a library, one has several recent books about the show."

"Each of the Parrott-designed windows offers similar meticulousness. Vintage print ads are tacked on the walls, with several directly linked to the show’s plots."

"No “Mad Men’ display would be worth much without nods to the characters’ vices. So, there’s an ashtray with a finished cigarette. There are remnants of an affair – a pair of ladies’ shoes with a ruffled tie intertwined and cuff links to the side. And, multiple drained bottles of booze."
