a moniker'nickname' for a point in time in someones life when they decide for themselves to think more at home on earth feeling, usually with a drive to enjoy living the days of life as well/content as possible and living life as how they may want to live to acheive full happiness, Usually a freethinking, naturalist type, many do not indulge on living as modern society does, some enjoy nature for all its beauty, some may enjoy music for the sake of music and its beauty,some enjoy various artforms and may express themselves in various creative ways such as music drawing painting poetry etc. Are usually content with life as it stands and most seem to be happy or content even when lifes up and dows can get you down, in other words hippie can be what ever you want it to be , you arent limited to a set of instructions, just in all reality, tapping into our actual self and not what society makes us think we are.

Someone who wants to help the world, but ends up just smoking weed and tripping on acid. Includes college know-it-all hippie, giggling stoners, drum-circlers, and well dwellers. Cannot stand Slayer. John Lennon is often referred to as the King Of Hippies. The only cool hippie was Jimi Hendrix.

Unbathed miscreants from the flatulent 1960s who developed modern Progressive ideology with the help of LSD and other mind altering substances. They came to believe that hallucinogenics and finger-painting gave them great insight into complex socio-economic and political issues. They originally self-identified as "free love" flower children, but would fundamentally transform themselves into communist oppressors in their old age. What was once a call to live free, became a mad dash for mandates, bans, and suffocating regulation over anything that even remotely annoyed them.

They would eventually come to barnacle themselves to already existing Civil Rights movements. Although still attempting to rebel against their parents while pushing 70 years of age, they are oblivious to the fact that they are no longer counter-culture, that they are in fact: the culture, especially in academic sewers. Perhaps being the most unwise American generation in existence, even in old age they still cannot grasp the reality that the concept of Utopia is a fantasy.

Their lack of personal hygiene is legendary. They oftentimes like to surround themselves with bottles of their own urine, or feces filled compost heaps in their own basements. It's highly likely that between their affinity for their own human waste products and their anti-technology reverence for the Kaczynski-esque ravings of Karl Marx, that they will be bring back the Black Death some time before the next turn of the Century.
That filthy hippie won't get his mouth off that bong long enough to read a book; how does he know anything about economics?

An overgrown child who may occasionally abuse drugs and alcohol to cope with their impossible ideals in the modern world. Often they are the spawn of wealth and they choose to distance themselves from the paths of their parents in a pathetic attempt to feel "unique." Sometimes going so far as to change their names to something like Asia, Sky, Kukka, Sunray or Zennia. While this person is not a total fuck up (which would be okay because there is likely a trust fund safety net in place), this person has a tendency live life extremely carelessly. The only exception to this sense of carelessness is if they are over-angered by environmental policy, animal rights or George Bush. Which probably is just a scapegoat for how much they hate their rich parents. The resulting lifestyle may include any number of characteristics such as: mind numbing and god awful dancing along with a serious passion for meaningless jam bands that feature endless meandering guitar solos. A loss of interest in maintaining personal hygiene. A terrible lower back tattoo almost always involving a flower, fairy, butterfly or tribal nonsense. Exceptionally long hair everywhere (especially in undesirable regions of the body). Hair is often matted, ratted, oily or in unequal clumps of dreds.
Our couch smells like piss, shit and incense. Did Jazzerus sleep over last night? I'm pretty sure I saw him jump in his Audi and drive off early this morning. Jesus Christ that fucking hippie is confused.
