Modern day hippies are groups that pretend to have an ideal and an anti-establishment cause, but really are as closed minded as any clique or trendy group. Some think everything should be as happy and peaceful as their privileged lives have afforded them, and others are as sketchy and messed up as anyone.
The prolems with this group are they think it's cool to neglect hygiene, gather there opinions from emotions and not facts, and only listen to very few bands/djs, the one's that are the most popular amongst hippies. This creates quality bands/djs to get overrun and sold out by people who don't have a clue about what makes the performers exceptional.
They basically ruin things do to ignorance and selfconsciousness.
She got to college and realized her look wasn't going to get her enough attention. After buying the "hippie handbook", she knew what to wear, how to think, and what one band to listen to. Now she gets to smoke bowls with the cool kids and never has to buy anything, and can be a slut without looking like one.
