How come? Aren't they the same thing?
How can you possibly begin making a case against an entire generation by comparing them to the Hippies...
Is it possible that a few people are just a little pissed off that they never asked for more?
We don't just bite our lip and suck it up like you probably did. We show a little passion and emotion. We're seeking a change in a world that will soon be ours.
We don't waste time being angry in a situation - we find ways to fix it....
Posts like this are already second-nature to me. I have a hard time even considering this one an argument. It’s more like a bitter, incoherent couple of paragraphs from a person who is jealous of the opportunities my generation has…
And the best part of the whole situation is no matter what is said about us, YOU have to adapt to us, not the other way around…and that is beautiful.

The way of the hippie is antithetical to all repressive hierarchical power structures.... Freedom is the paramount virtue in this system.... This engenders an attitude that allows for maximum personal growth.
Our society only permits you one or two weeks a year of freedom to pursue your own agenda... Hippies reject the 9 to 5 lifestyle and therefore are objects of ridicule by those whose lives run by the clock. Programmed people are jealous and resent the freedom we possess.
The unmitigated freedom that hippies represent is the greatest threat to any system in which control equals power.
