The hippies back in the 60-70's were a lot smarter than we give credit for. The main philosophy behind the hippy movement was that "by changing yourself, you change society". Why do you think they were black sheeped so f*cking fast, they were actually posing a real threat to the status-quo, and were promptly eliminated, in the exact same way Occupy was crushed, not by the government, but by instilling the mentality that these people are lower than the low, and thus using the people themselves to defeat an idea that would be beneficial to them...

The hippies were right though "by changing yourself, you change society". Look at the empathy and behavior of people today, completely non conducive to cooperation and sharing, and it shows in society with the lowest IQ scores ever in our history, extreme violence being perpetrated by younger and younger people (now even children are killing/murdering), mass pollution, a government that has lost all sense of progress and efficiency, and much much more... In fact it is safe to say that it will be substantially harder to change society, than it was in the 60's/70's, simply because people gave two shits about each other back then.

The ultimate proof? In the event of police abuse, or a violent attack, notice not the offender/victim, notice instead that every time these events occur NO ONE IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY HELPS ANYMORE, instead they pull out their cameras and start filming like sick voyeurs, unaware that if they banded together at that moment they could drive back the violent offender, cop or otherwise. We have lost the basic mentality of strength in numbers, because we have been made to think we are special, and alone, and everyone around me is an idiot who couldn't help me out even if they wanted too.

There's your new America folks..

So, are the problems today corporate, government, financial, etc... Or is it us?

EDIT: More Thoughts:

Humanity is simply too slow to change/adapt/compromise, any new ideas, even beneficial are rejected until the next generation comes around, this unfortunately is around a 20 year process each time. In 20 years I suspect the first homeless people of today will be saying "Told you so"...

Since humanity changes/adapts far too slowly, it is a main reason why we are so easily controlled, willing ignorance towards ideals that do not support your/our own... SSDD (Same Sh!t, Different Day, etc.)

I tell people that we are only going to start seeing beneficial change once the baby boomer generation dies off and leaves the political scene, they have literally become stagnant (Case & Point, the GOP has failed to repeal Obummercare over 38 times, THIRTY EIGHT TIMES. Gives the definition of insanity a whole new meaning doesn't it?)

So yeah, rough times ahead. Hippies, you were totally right, and today's generation knows it, however their parents and the ones in power do not...

I was a child in the 70s and when it was obvious they were no real threat in terms of being able to provoke them into violence, etc. there seemed to be a steady push to ridicule them and their sentiments...

There were still a lot of the real ones around then, and okay, they gave their kids pretty weird names but for the most part, tried their best. Fed them whole food, tried to get them to develop their artistic side, etc...

But the movement wasn't really that big. Most were pretenders, or weekend hippies who lived 'the straight life' the rest of the week and were all about the drugs and getting laid, and they were the ones who later 'sold out'...

you can rewrite history if you want but the Hippy Movement was about establishing a New World Order and nothing more. Did they fail? Will the New Order they strove for spring forth? Will we all hold Hands, sway from side to side and sing Kumbya while heavily Medicated to expand our consciousness(stupidity)?
