Each hippie can be different, stand for different things. Usually people willing to learn, help others in feeling good about themselves, doesnt shadow or hide their "non mainstream" desires, comfortable with everyones sexuality, Doesnt judge so much, promotes loving and peace. Hippies usually look at the bigger picture of Human beings, seeing things as a whole. Some are vegitarian, some not. Usually has alot of faith in individual people or humanity in general. Stands up for their beliefs without disregarding others feelings. Not pussys', i know many hippies that can tear some shit up. They dont dress a certain way (in a whole, similarities vary) and just do what they want because they believe its free, and we are people. Loving to be intouch with nature, usually really spiritual but not exactly religious.
Being a hippie is not about the way you dress, the drugs you do, its about the mentality you have.
Hippies are usually calm and understand others feelings. They discuss ideas and are usually against most things the government does (which doesnt mean we dont love our country).
There is 1 difference between most hippies. The ones who do drugs, and dont.
Dont do drugs: Believe in all the same things, but may not think drugs are good because your body is a temple.
Do drugs: Believes all the stated above but believe that "your body is a temple" Therefore it should expierience mind alterations to expand the mind.
Basically, hippies vary. They are good fun people to be around and mostly send out good vibes and are optimistic
