Say we were back in the fifties in our early teens, and the 60's were comin upon us, would you adopt the hippy lifestyle and live your life as a hippy?

Say history is repeating itself, and we are going back into a hippy type time in society, would you live that life now?

Well, that sort of would be a yes then, if you think about it.

If people started being hippies again, it would just be like being a scene kid, it'll start off as a few kids trying to be 'unique' and then next thing you know they're everywhere.

Thats not really bad if it were to be a scene like the sixties dont you think? The emo scene is kinda sad but a bunch of peace loving activists that love music? What's wrong with that?

Uh, no? It's not a yes or no. It's a "I'll be doing whatever the **** happens"

No.

Damn hippies.

If you start congregating in my backyard with your ****ing drum circles,
you better believe I'll be there with an m16 and an assload of grenades.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

It's already happening.

It's called the Libertarian Party.

But seriously, I don't know. If the style came back today it would most likely be a fashion thing, at most. Kids today are too dumb/secured to do anything like what was happening in the 60's.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

^ And this

Plus, some of the drama kids at my school who do mushrooms already think they are hippies.

But they're generally too confused by looking at the sky to be much of a threat so I let them be.

What if people started changing, waking up and deciding to be more conscious beings and it wasnt just a fashion statment though. Do YOU think thats possible?

I would say "get out of my face you dirty hippy"
and then proceed to lock them up in my basement.

Back then I probably would have, but I guess I'll never know. I wouldn't do it nowadays though.
#34
NAh I would get misel down to London and become a mod with the R&B and Blues scene, then I might have been the guitarist for the Yardbirds or summat and be rich, then eventually turn into a hippy as a lot of the mods did.
#35
won't happen.

history doesn't repeat itself THAT quickly.
And it always works in different manifestations. So even if we were to have another hippie movement, it won't be anything like the 60s, it would have it's own personality. It may not even be distinguishable to the hippe movements of the 60s, until the event is analyzed after the thought.

I think everyone should be a hippie and anyone who says other wise should be raped.
