Left winger born too late for the Vietnam War, so he/she felt like he/she has to scream insults at Bush, make bogus charges about US Soldiers shooting Iraqi/Afgan civilians in cold blood, and refusing to accept that Saddam had WMD's, but just moved them to neighbouring Syria or Iran, and that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were legitimate.
Rightous Man: Who's screaming "fuck Bush" and "No Blood for oil" at the top of her lungs?"
Rightous woman: "Oh, Just some Neo-hippie Moron."
neo-hippie is not anything of the above. it is not simply a vegeatarian, a pothead, a tie-dye wearer, someone who does not shower regularly, a rights activist, a person interested in spirituality or a person conserned with nature. a neo-hippy can not be defined or categorised, but may be someone who wants to take a stand for what they believe, wheather political or otherwise, someone who believes in peace and love, or someone who can identify with the values of other people labelled as 'neo-hippies'
some people see me as a neo-hippie because i protest, smoke wacky tobackey, seek spiritual enlightenment and care about the enviroment.
A New age or modern Hippie.
Like traditional hippies, neo-hippies are political and motivated, to some degree. Neo-Hippie could be difined as someone who meets the all, if not most, following standards: Liberal in political veiws, sports certain fashion attire distinct to the "hippie" family and plays hackie sack. Neo-hippies also may be vegetarian and have an avid, if not obsessive, desire to recycle.
Hey, look, it's Kasey... she's playing hackie sack, what a neo-hippie.
Someone who is interested in several of the following things:
vegetarianism/veganism, the environment, animal rights, gay rights, mild recreational drugs, feminism, New Age spirituality, or organic produce.
Stereotypical neo-hippie attire includes loose, comfortable clothing like peasant tops, skirts and sandals. Homemade clothing is common among the truly hardcore, as it appeals to their anti-capitalist sensibilities. Long hair is popular with both males and females.
'Did you see the new neighbors? They have a daughter named Marigold, and they're meditating in tie-dyed tunics on the front lawn. What neo-hippies'
I think that everyone is making too general of a look. Not all neo-hippies are like the trowback hippie. I think now more than ever it is about a state of mind/ a way of thinking. They whole idia that you need to pave your own path and not to just follow. IT also includes thinking outside the box(with but not exclusivly through the use of drugs such as LSD or marijuana)Paramount among their ideals would be that you need to be happy in life and not just do somthing because you will make more money. A great value on self happiness.
Neo-hippie 1-"Instead of working for money I am gonna work for enjoyment of working"
Neo-hippie 2-" What is it really that controls it it all, is it god?"
A neo-hippie is a being who cares about themselves, nature, and the ones around them. Someone who embraces all life and love. A neo-hippie does not see borders, lines, boundaries, color or faith. He/She sees themselves, their life and their existance.
Someone who doesn't smoke weed to "get baked"
I am a neo hippie.
Neo Hippies come in two forms: the real and the fake. First we will deal with the real. Real neo hippies are individuals that come in all different colors, sizes, subcultures and habits, but all agree on one thing: free is best and everyone's invited! These environmentally and socially-conscious people are inclusive, in tune (with the earth and themselves, recognizing the good and bad within each) people that love listening to late '60's/ early '70's music, watching '60's/'70's movies and think Bob Dylan is a prophet. Neo hippies embrace all types of music though. (They may also listen to Phish, but this band usually identify the preferences of fake neo hippies.) Although they usually attempt to be extremely health conscious (vegans, vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, yoga, meditation), they most definitely smoke copious amounts of pot, most times cigarettes and partake in harder drugs with no remorse; or don't do drugs at all because they feel it clouds their state of consciousness. They do not mind a smelly person and usually have personal hygiene issues themselves. Love the great outdoors and go camping, hiking, backpacking at least 7 times per year. Has gone on at lease two trips to the mountains solo. Sometimes can be characterized by flowy clothing (women); but as stated before, the real neo hippie is person of many undertakings and attitudes, so can not be identified by clothing. Definitely into Boca burgers (even if they eat meat), incense, health food stores, Patchoul...more...
