What Is A Hippie Philosophy, After All These Years?

What Is A Hippie Philosophy, After All These Years? | Hippie | Scoop.it
More than the mass media wants you to believe, most hippies had a coherent philosophy tuned into freedom and love for life.

Don't get me wrong. The sex and drugs were great, but there was so much more. Here's the rest of the story.

Hippie Peace Freaks, Hippies Love Peace | Hippie | Scoop.it
To the Silent Majority in the '60s, we were hippie peace freaks the minute we chanted, 'Hell no, we won't go! ' To them, we're an insult to their patriotism. True, their version of patriotism anyway.
