THANKS A LOT, all of you once-brilliant, now-stagnating "change-the-world" yuppie-hippie types!!!
Alot of those so called 'hippies', attending Woodstock, Monterey and the Isle Of Wight, were just faking it.
They profiled themselves as being a hippy, just for fun or because of the fact that friends said it was cool.
Anyway, they never really adopted the hippie ideology and just a few years later they crawled back in right wing society.
Only a few stood behind their principles and idealism, even til this day.
I know I didn't experience the hippie lifestyle, but I consider myself to be a hippy and I'm proud of it.
People like Bush, Thatcher are evil as far as I'm concerned.
You're right about that...
I also agree with DonRico that the lack of idealism gave them room to do their policies and gave them the possibility to take over the torch.
Socialism is still around, but hard to find
