Neo-Hippie describes a merging of the ideals of hippie, rave, punk, slacker, and internet culture. Beliefs based on community and peaceful cooperation, outside of the mainstream. Strongly opinionated but open and accepting of others and differing opinions. Many prefer a life style involving the therapeutic use of psychedelics and empathogens. Often they embrace the diy life style, vegetarianism, veganism, anarchism, communism. They will drop everything to help a friend in need, and often feel a sense of family within their community.
Their way of dress varies greatly, but you can usually spot them by their lack of care, and very loose comfortable clothing.
The neo-hippie can be found at clubs, raves, shows, protest, used book and thrift stores, and non corporate coffee shops.
Dave- Well we still go to shows, and love punk rock, but their is so much more out there.
Nick- Totally, I love going to the club, and swinging poi, and even thou labels are pointless, what have we become.
Dave- I guess you'd call us neo-hippies.
Nick- I agree, because showers are important.
Dave- Most definitely.
Neo-hippie: "So what?"
Boy: "I hate gay people!"
Neo-hippie: "They're just like you, except they like the same sex."
Girl: "Eww, I look fat in this shirt!!"
Neo-hippie: "No, you look beautiful and curvyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy."
Boy: "I like punching people in the face."
Neo-hippie: "I enjoy the breeze on my face, in my hair when I'm driving in my car with the windows down."
Neo-Hippies call themselves hippies or modern hippies. First off they are kind hearted like the 60's hippies. They are called neo-hippies because their views are different in a few ways from the first hippies. As usual stereo typed like all people are. they are one against stereotypes and are their own people like the 60's hippies were. they have some common goals like peace and freedom. they are called neo for adding new beliefs like budaism and vegitarism. i'm not saying all believe in that stuff just some. as usual dressing their own way away from the norm. they are okay with gays, bi's, lezbains, and non-sexauls but that doesn't make them one. neo-hippie and hippie are so deep and vary between people you can't really define it. p.s. NOT ALL do drugs and not take showers.
"coo cool, i got the nic hippie now"
"dude get over it you're a neo-hippie for liking guns and training to use a sword."
"but i'm peace loving and kind hearted plus i'm in the top"
those most politically engaged as well as the sixties hippies tend to be on the libertarian left with a more pronounced green politics emphasis. neohippies of the nineties and 2000s have alingned themselves in causes and campaings related to the anti-globalization movements and in some places in antiglobalization events there will be small blocks of hippie or hippie looking protestors who tend to reactualize situationist and yippie and diggers political happenings.
now some tend to be mostly just about a way of dress and a certain sensibility while others who are more radical will practice more radical lifestyles engaging in doit youself practices and small community cooperative systems usually earning a living outside regular office/factory jobs with a tendency towards craftsmanship or the arts.
A passion for discovering new things and new people motivates many to backpacking (and sometimes by hitchhiking) and in some particular cases highly nomadic lifestyles. a continous daily living in this way gives neohippies many resorts and a lot of skills of surviving and having fun without too much or any compromise with consumer capitalism and bureaucracy.
usually with a relaxed attitute and a smile. open to encounters with most kinds of people, this doesnt necesarrily means not resorting to selfdefense or rejection of certain kinds of people (wealthy kids, yuppies, fascist skinheads, stupid agressive punks, police, army, among others) and in many times with friendships and lovers in some segments in similar subcultures and groups (nice punks, leftist and green activists, vagabonds, bohemians, artists, rastas, social centres and squatters activists, among others).
many tend towards a relationship with new age culture and practices or things like buddism or neochamanism, others emphasize more bohemian lifestyles (party, many friendships and lovers, artistic interests) and others radical political and lifestyle practice or all or some of these things.
