Unbathed miscreants from the flatulent 1960s who developed modern Progressive ideology with the help of LSD and other mind altering substances. They came to believe that hallucinogenics and finger-painting gave them great insight into complex socio-economic and political issues. They originally self-identified as "free love" flower children, but would fundamentally transform themselves into communist oppressors in their old age. What was once a call to live free, became a mad dash for mandates, bans, and suffocating regulation over anything that even remotely annoyed them.

They would eventually come to barnacle themselves to already existing Civil Rights movements. Although still attempting to rebel against their parents while pushing 70 years of age, they are oblivious to the fact that they are no longer counter-culture, that they are in fact: the culture, especially in academic sewers. Perhaps being the most unwise American generation in existence, even in old age they still cannot grasp the reality that the concept of Utopia is a fantasy.

Their lack of personal hygiene is legendary. They oftentimes like to surround themselves with bottles of their own urine, or feces filled compost heaps in their own basements. It's highly likely that between their affinity for their own human waste products and their anti-technology reverence for the Kaczynski-esque ravings of Karl Marx, that they will be bring back the Black Death some time before the next turn of the Century.
That filthy hippie won't get his mouth off that bong long enough to read a book; how does he know anything about economics?

Happy Intelligent Person Perpetuating Interpersonal Existentialism!

One that embraces the ideals of those from the 60s and 70's with an eye toward sustainable living. A hippie is someone that is able to rise above the stereotype to show that they are smart, ambitious in one way or another and embraces green technology, sustainability and realizes that war is not the answer.

Definition was born out of creativity and my distain for being labeled so stereotypically.
That H.I.P.P.I.E. gave me some totally awesome free vegan food!

That hippie has totally changed my views on what is and is not working for me and this country!

One who embraces life to the fullest. Promotes peace, love and happiness, but sure as hell sticks up for what they believe in. One who looks upon all of these negative definitions and shakes his head thinking how sad it must be to no longer have the ability to dream of a world that we were all taught to strive for as children. One who loves everyone without prejudice.

n. A smelly prototypical raver who makes the rest of America's liberals look really, really bad by inappropriate association.

What your parents were when they could fit into tight bellbottoms and tie-die shirts.
Kid: Mom, why does it look like your a rainbow in this picture?
Mom: *grabs book* That, Billy, is a hippie.
Kid: My freind Jake says that all hippies are dirty, pot smoking whorebags, but I don't think so.
Mom:...You go tell Jake that his mom was one.
