A subclass of hippy that is fairly well to do: well enough to be able to afford higher end vehicles (read: not Kia's or used cars; typically Volvos or Mini Coopers) but they will not purchase luxury cars because that is what The Man drives. They have houses in safe neighborhoods or houses in areas that are undergoing regentrification. This breed of hippy will usually be seen at Whole Foods or perusing the Politics::Socialism section of your local bookstore. Despite their affinity for Marxism and for all things to managed by the government (to make things fair), they send their kids to private school.
I would send my kids to that academy, but the parents are just one Volvo hippy after another.
