A neo-hippie is at peace. At peace with world, good and bad. He (or she) knows that the enjoyment of Life, whatever his circumstances are, is the most important aspect of living. He enjoys all activities, all genres of music, all kinds of people, and sees the unique beauty in everything. He watches the world with an objective eye, seeing all sides of a story. He does not stare at the negativity he sees; he looks at it and finds within it positivity. He knows that civil liberties are innate, and to deny anyone those is outright wrong. He does not fight for what is right, he pushes the right past the wrong, for hatred helps nobody.. He controls himself with a free restraint, hurting for he knows it will pass with time, loving for he knows that it is the best feeling a person can experience. He experiences everything there is to experience, because from those his ever-changing soul grows.
Girl: "Wow, that girl's a bitch."
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."
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?"
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.
Nick- What happened to us, remember punk rock for life?
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.
A free-spirited persuer of happiness, peace, love, unity, and freedom. Without trying to be a 'modern hippie,' or tries sport peace signs as much as posible or look like an actual hippie from the 60's and or 70's. Nor is it really about style, (although powerpop scene kids do seem to follow under the this new label's stereotypical 'style') it's more about their attitude towards life.
She's so happy and doesn't care what people think, I love that neo-hippie.
