Thank God for Hippies
http://endingcannabisprohibition.yuku.com/top...

When the crime is so minor, having marijuana, and the punishment is so unreasonable, taking people's homes and years of their lives, as well as a very real Twentieth century shunning, one is forced to look for deeper motives. I have come to believe that it is not the proscription of a substance but the systematic oppression of a certain kind of people. There have been a whole series of decisions made, on local, state and federal levels, to the effect that hippies, by which is meant any committed liberal persons, are undesireable and are to be banned, interdicted, harrassed, discouraged, arrested and pee-tested. It is a blatant use of police power to frighten and intimidate millions of people into giving up a heartfelt spiritual practice and lifestyle.

There are probably 25 million marijuana smokers in the United States alone, as well as millions more who if not smokers now, are still sentimental about it. The oppression to which I refer is for the purpose of keeping these millions of people off balance to minimize their political power. All those 500,000 pot smokers doing time are out of the political process, present but not able to vote. The urine test is the loyalty oath of the Nineties. The hippies are this season's Jews, this season's Reds...

Who are these people? We are the yeast that makes the dough rise. And it's not just us, there's been people like us for centuries. Before there were hippies, there were beatniks, before there beatniks, there were bohemians. The European counterculture ran away from Naz Germany. They brought hundreds of thousands of artists and musicians and writers into this country. Before that there were people like George Bernard Shaw and Voltaire and all the way back to Socrates. There have always been that fraction of people who have said, "I want to see the truth."

Drug sells apexed, divorce and wedlock rates rose, and a lack of order in American society overall have resulted since the Flower Movement. Thank you Flower Generation.

Hippies did indeed ruin America. But they did have some excellent music.

Before the 60s drugs were not acceptable,open sex not acceptable,music had a positive message. Well now there is states that legalize pot, stds are at a all time high and music preaches violence and total disregard for the law . Sounds like Woodstock Is everyday America.

Forget the clothes, music, etc. In the 1960, from England to USA, thousands of historical buildings were pulled down and replaced with modern crap, which we are now pulling down again. The 1960's erased our history, no one can cook the food of their grandmother, or even know where she came from or what HER gramdmother's name was. Our heritage was destroyed so they could play for a generation

Well, very interesting though how people from that group never slander you and call you names. I think it says more about you and your kind than it does them!

Patchouli oil, now that stuff make me want to beat-up midgets whenever I smell it.
But then a lot of things make me want to wail on a midget for some reason, must be watching that Willy Wonka flick too many times.

Yes, unconventional also means getting a job, respecting elders and loving your family. That's pretty unconventional for a freak.
