Someone who uses personal freedom as an excuse to not get a job. Hippies listen to lousy music, wear worn out rags, have no fashion sense, worship Jerry Garcia, and smoke weed all day.
I went to that party the other night, you know the one down the block. There were too many hippies, it was lame.

people that understand this one life is the planets and we are just on it to do our part to make it better more peaceful harmony, animals are people, we are all in this together-
forever alone so do your part to help we could bring back paridise if we just could love and understand think for your self but care about other animals (humans too). Hippies understand and have an open mind about life, no judging people, wasting time- time is in your head. We were put here to take care of each other, the animals, and the planet. We are just animals that devolpe skills to use knowlodge to make the world a better, more beautiful, peaceful place... one world one love
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

All a hippie is someone who appreciate being part of this beautiful planet that everyone else doesn't really seems to care about anymore. you a 1 small object part of something much larger

"Hippie," Can be used as a shrug off to someone, or as a label of being 'free spirited', or having 'alternative views.' Hippies experience oneness within nature and fellow humans. There concepts of space and time may be more of the universalist perspective. Fair trade and family businesses are perferred over corporate companies that take up our earth. As Bob Marley said it in "Concrete Jungle." A misconception with marijuana is that is a of the earth so it just enhances their perception to the higher states of consciousness, expercining sacred geometry, and intuition.

A hippie is a non-conformist who believes that peace and love come first, everyone should be free, life should be ecstasy and fun all the time, they are very deep people, hippies are kindhearted, they use psychedelic hallucinations like LSD, Magic Mushrooms, Mescaline and Marijuana to alter their conciousness and reveal things to them. Hippies wear whatever they want, they do whatever they want. They can do backflips down the street in front of other hippies and they won't look at them like theyre weed. Hippies also protest for what they believe and adopt habits or lifestyles like vegetarianism, new age and eastern religion, etc.
That hippie was fried on those mushrooms.

The 1960's hippie generation were way ahead of there time and the world hasn't caught up with there ideas yet. Thus there is a neohippie movement of enlightened people and gothic hippie trying to finaly bring there message to the world of peace and love which is a simple as falling off a log but some how the rest of the world can't get it. It's like there stuck on retard and can't understand that it's bad to kill each other. especilly the right wing milita shit heads who think there being cool talking about murdering all the black people and making america a fasicst state.
The hippies are wat ahead of there time.

A hippie is someone who promotes peace, love, and understanding. A hippie is not necessarily someone who uses drugs. In fact, quite a few hippies I know, myself included, have started a campaign against drugs.
A hippie is also someone who recognizes the problems we have and protests to change them. Instead of labeling these people as evil and wanting to force the population to do what they say, we should open our eyes and see that we are not perfect.
Person 1- Hippie! Your house probably smells like drugs.
Person 2- I don't use drugs. Thats not what hippies are all about.


Power to the people!

A person who is content to throw away the idea of fitting to society's norms (such as money orientation, rigorous maintenance of appearance, suppression of emotion) in order to find balance and discover who they are and how to make themselves happy. They try doing this without treading on others' happiness.

True hippies also do not judge others that are not like them, as they know that everyone has their place in the world. Their place is to try and balance competition, war, and the mass consumption of the earth's resources. They only preach this due to the belief that there aren't enough like minded people to achieve that balance needed to prevent humanity from self-destruction due to world wars, and a lack of earth's sustenance.

Spreading peace and love ideology: Originates from a self-interested philosophy of gratification, as does nearly everything we do. However, as we become adults and develop relationships and emotions for people in our lives, the simple, self centered theory complicates greatly.

Most people want to be happy in life and find that people being happy around them helps to achieve this (sociopaths aside) so hippies tend to promote this feeling of well being. Making others happy around us is in all of our best interests.

Communal Living: Much to do with the peace and love philosophy, we are surrounding ourselves with happy, like minded individuals.

As most of the population are naturally social creatures and work together to achieve things that would be very difficult to do as individuals, we the human race have been survivors throughout history (while we slowly kill the rest of the world in order to survive and thrive). Communes are a natural response to the human desire to be and work together, as well as to conserve resources.

"Technologically impaired, dirty, broke": As addressed in the commune section, we are, at this point not even slowly killing the rest of the world so that we can survive as a species. This is a well backed scientific conclusion.

The minimalist philosophy suggests that we use only what we need for our survival and happiness, and against common believe, we don't need toys and closets of clothing and brand new cars , etc., to be happy. We feel otherwise because we are afraid of judgement.
Not to say this is a bad thing, this is also natural, it aids in competitiveness which is a motivating drive that has been essential in our survival.

Tie-dye: Most common three users I have crossed paths with are 1. People who use it to express who they are and what they believe and try to promote this, or at least warn others they come in contact with beforehand, as it is a pretty common symbol of the hippie religion :).
2. People who want you to think they are a hippie without actually believing, or acting upon the beliefs.
3. People who don't know or care exactly what the tie dye flag represents, but utilize it for the colors. These users often are genetically void of fashion sense.

Holistic healing: As non-mainstreamers are very aware, alternative views can go overlooked, and are often ridiculed. Supporting probiotics and alkaline diets, etc., that are also overlooked and ridiculed is second nature-having first hand experience with mass rejection, you fucking stand up for your own.

Also, many people ridicule these theories because they are not backed by science, but they aren't disproved. Anyway, this is a whole different fucking essay. Medical companies are not evil for the most part, but they can only do so much, all of which requires funding. Investors don't invest in things like preventative medicine and natural healing, as there is little to no return. So the likelihood of concluding these theories anytime soon is very low.

Hazes and trips: Most commonly one of the following: As wine, cheese and baguettes are to the french, hallucinogens and joints are to hippies. This is simply cultural practice, used for enjoyment and unity.

As peyote was to the native americans, hallucinogens and joints are to hippies. They are used to enhance personal spirituality, achieve an enlightened state, induce revelations of the spiritual state of the world, connections between anything and everything.

Often, one person will have different experiences and different purposes depending. Sometimes, these substances are like (or combined with) tv for the average american. Used to distract from the pain of boredom, isolation, regret, general dissatisfaction with life. Used to make friends more easily. Hippies are cheerful, but they have bad times just like everyone else.

Hypocritical: Everyone is this way about some things at some point, usually often. Most of us try not to be, but this is inevitable as we are inconsistent by nature, causing us to say and do things we don't believe in, change our minds, misunderstand what we are saying or doing, or some days just run out of energy and not give a shit. Happens to the best of us, and the ability to change and adjust daily not only causes us to be hypocrites sometimes, but also enables us to survive-deal with our surroundings and experiences, grow as people, advance our thought processes. It is an ugly and beautiful thing, much like your parents having sex to make you.

hippie-you can only love and respect anything or anyone as much as you have love and respect for yourself.
