ATTN: Zurtok and the rest of us hippies

And a definition of hippy :shock:

Quote
So being a hippie is not a matter of dress, behavior, economic status, or social milieu. It is a philosophical approach to life that emphasizes freedom, peace, love and a respect for others and the earth. The way of the hippie never died. There have always been hippies from the first time society laid down rules, to Jesus, to Henry David Thoreau, to John Lennon, to you and me. I believe there’s a little hippy in all of us. It’s just been repressed by our socialization process. We need to find it and cultivate our hippie within. Only then can we reach our true potential.

Peace and Love, Skip


I think this makes a lot of us hippies, including a lot of those who keep trying to use that word as an insult.

i think it's a bullshit definition of the term "hippie" used by someone who's trying to justify not washing their ass for a week.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"

You're just mad because you are realising you ARE a hippy and there is nothing you can do about.  Think about

1  Sex
2  Drugs
3  Rock n Roll
4  Freedom
5  Anti establishment

What about you ISN'T a hippy :lol:

funny, that sounds like the creed of every marginalized subculture I cna think of. To try and ascribe it exclusively to hippies is a bit of a stretch.

I love all of those things, HOWEVER, I bathe regularly, shave when appropriate, and I FUCKING HATE PATCHOULI.

therefore...

ME = MOST DEFINITELY NOT A HIPPIE

please not, however, that regardless of how much that particular subculture disgusts me, I have NEVER seriously looked down on anyone or thought less of anyone here for being a hippie.

Skip never claims that his definition only applies to hippies, he is just trying to describe what being a hippy is about, he is trying to break the stereotype of the stinky nonbathing nonworking long haired bum.  Not all of us are like that.  Though a lot of us still have long hair. :wink:

maybe the derivitive is what causes so much discursion.

Hippy/Hippie= Hipster

i view the whole "hippy" phenomena of the 60's mostly as a pop-culture
excusatory usurption of the preveous Hipster views and practices, and
i don't mean the bathing ones.

more the beat kniks and 50's poets. crazed "marijuana-abusing" jazz
musicians, ecclectic non-traditional painters, the people that were more
interested in the 'hey what's that?" than the "hey, who are you?"

in short, hippies (60's) are looked down on by their predecessors and
their successors mainly because most of them (particularly the ones that
got publicity) were stinky bums that weren't really hippies or Hipsters,
just attention whore conformists looking for a provocative mold to fit.

or not
Ya' stupid Yank.

Hippies never adopted this term for themselves. They preferred to be called the "beautiful people".

Hippies Unite!  Or was that Untie?

Patchuli is NASTY, it in no way qualifies someone as a hippy because they like the stuff.

And, I believe in bathing everyday, and shaving most days.

HIPPIE HIPPIE HURRAY!
