A derogatory term for certain rural dwellers used to play up the overrated hype of urban conformity. Hicks reject modern doctrines of chasing class, sophistication, and materialism either outrightedly, or because they can't be bothered with venturing out of their simple yet humble lifestyles. They tend to not worry about insignificant things like trends and fashions and sometimes walk into the bank wearing their "shitkickers" to enjoy disgusted reactions. They are often called old fashioned but know that the urban community established by capitalist bankers and freemasons with too much money and power is only a temporary thing that like most fads will go out of fashion in due time. Too one's disgust, "City slickers" and urbanites who are generally regarded as being more refined or worldly have earned more favorable names like "gentleman", "intellectual", "beau", and "smoothy" mostly due to the fact that they, the ones in control of urban hubs and centers are also the ones in control of mass public influence, and the English language for that matter. After all, the country people are responsible for the bucolic plague!
After Bush got elected for his second term, the Waits family said "the hell with this fascist crapola!" and retired to the country to be hicks.
