Ah so this is one of those resting places of old failed 60's burnouts, eh? Another one of those towns... the veneer of hipness,“sustainability”(LOL). . in fact a refuge where the counter-culture can preserve its social relations in a bubble, while in fact betraying everything that created them in the first place...

Hippycrites! There are a number of spots like this scattered through the USA. Eugene OR. Santa Cruz CA. A bunch of 'em around Potsdam NY.

Inbred farts... too busy excluding newcomers or outsiders to engage in any meaningful political or social action. How diligently these 60's copouts, now in their 60's, have created their little world in which they can pretend to be superior to all others... what? Not wearing a hemp hat and spewing all the appropriate cliches? Then you're marginalized.

I came through all of it... was an antiwar organizer, have been involved in what used to be called “the Movement” for decades, and have never found more stonewalling opposition and apathy than among the former hippies. They know only inbred self-interest. The most USELESS segment of society, and possibly even more annoying than Teapartiers.

Sustainable? Have counter-culture hippycrites ANYWHERE created a meaningful ag movement? Support for workers? Activism against toxification? Look around... is that happening there in your hip bubble? No. Nor anywhere. A sham. The Big Chill, lol. But in some place, still maintaining the hippy façade.

I kept the faith. What the hell happened to the rest of you? I've gone into your areas talking about very positive change, things you all proclaim... but what have I encountered? Nothing but egotripping self-important exclusivist brats.

OMG y'all have become as useless as anyone from the Silent Majority! LOL!!! You have a few token non-profits (sucking grant money) going on, a façade for social action and change. The reality---paltry, pathetic.

What's the pretense du jour? Gonna read your too-hip weekly, go see a local “blues” band, smoke another fat one, pet your cat and pretend you're the Revolution?

Get a grip... you're nowhere. You prancing posing dilettantes have nothing to say to me.

WAKE UP and retrieve some of your self-respect and decency while you can. How did you think and act in 1968? Try retrieving some of that. Because as it is, as you are... pffffft... in the wind.

(Don't react hysterically... consider this. Are you but spoiled suburban brats after all?)

Face it freaks... YOU BLEW IT!!!
Youre equal now STFU

Nice copouts... but it's a real problem. Don't pretend it isn't happening around Scottsville.
You drunks make hippy insults, but miss the point entirely. The pretense of progressive action hiding behind non-profit grant scams, and a social scene which is as elitist and discriminatory as Mitt Romney's friends (assuming he has any).
How many around that area hide in their own living rooms, create their own lifestyle bubble, and to hell with community, activism, etc.?
End the hypocrisy.
