We Are The People Our Parents Warned Us Against
A Close-Up of the Whole Hippie Scene
If you were a parent back in the day of hippies, this was your guidebook to the inside life of those crazy kids. Here are the inside stories told from some hippie children from Haight-Ashbury in 1967. You can learn groovy words like: pushing, scoring, tripping, acid, and smack. There is also lots of group sex and marijuana. Not a bad cultural profile, but a bit disorganized for reading. The author throws in ads, headlines, and other text that seem to be chapter markers, but aren’t really related. Maybe the author was trying to make a statement with his more “free form” organization.
Sample Hippie Joke:
Q – Do you know what happened to the hippy who crossed IBM with LSD?
A – He went on a business trip.
Everyone stay groovy, and feel free to contemplate the good old days with Jimmy Buffett’s song of nearly the same title.
