Early hippies (1960–1966)

Escapin' through the lily fields
I came across an empty space
It trembled and exploded
Left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on
That's when it all began
There was cowboy Neal
At the wheel
Of a bus to never-ever land
- Grateful Dead, lyrics from "That's It for the Other One"[24]

Ethos and characteristics

.Hippies sought to free themselves from societal restrictions, choose their own way, and find new meaning in life.^ Many Hippies loved to hitch-hike around the globe, as their way of meeting new people, as well as being very economical.

^ Although the hippie statement about breaking free from society and pursuing liberation and peace was the movement’s main theme, it became easy for people to know hippies more popularly because of their odd way of dressing and conducting themselves.

^ After all, hippies were experimenting with new ways of thinking, seeing, and knowing: " Turn on, tune in, drop out " .

One expression of hippie independence from societal norms was found in their standard of dress and grooming, which made hippies instantly recognizable to one another, and served as a visual symbol of their respect for individual rights. Through their appearance, hippies declared their willingness to question authority, and distanced themselves from the "straight" and "square" (i.e., conformist) segments of society.[66]
.At the same time, many thoughtful hippies distanced themselves from the very idea that the way a person dresses could be a reliable signal of who he was, especially after outright criminals, like Charles Manson, began to adopt hippie personas, and also after plainclothes policemen started to "dress like hippies" in order to harass legitimate members of the counter-culture.^ Find more products like this in: Adult Halloween Costumes • American Culture and History • 50's Costumes • Hippie Costumes • Hippie Couple • Costumes for Men • 60's Costumes .

Travel

Housetrucks at the Nambassa 5 day festival 1981.
.Travel, domestic and international, was a prominent feature of hippie culture, becoming (in this communal process) an extension of friendship.^ It was only after the Hippie sub-culture, that unmarried couples of any age felt they have the freedom to live or travel together, without the horror of social stigma.

School busses similar to Ken Kesey's Further, or the iconic VW bus, were popular because groups of friends could travel on the cheap. .The VW Bus became known as a counterculture and hippie symbol, and many buses were repainted with graphics and/or custom paint jobs — these were predecessors to the modern-day art car.^ Their brightly painted VW buses were the forerunners of the modern-day art vehicles.

^ Now, the modern-day hippie has four sides.

^ The first type of what is called “modern-day hippie” is the true-blue hippie, a true child of the 1960’s counterculture.

A peace symbol often replaced the Volkswagen logo. .Many hippies favored hitchhiking as a primary mode of transport because it was economical, environmentally friendly, and a way to meet new people.^ Many Hippies loved to hitch-hike around the globe, as their way of meeting new people, as well as being very economical.

Pre-planning was eschewed as hippies were happy to put a few clothes in a backpack, stick out their thumbs and hitchhike anywhere.

.During the summer and fall months, entire families traveled together in their trucks and buses, parked at Renaissance Pleasure Faire sites in Southern and Northern California, worked their crafts during the week, and donned Elizabethan costume for weekend performances and to attend booths where handmade goods were sold to the public.^ Cooking in bulk is a great way to keep expenses down during the work week, so I made a huge lasagna and stocked up on groceries that are easy to throw together.

One travel experience, undertaken by hundreds of thousands of hippies between 1969–1971, was the Hippie trail overland route to India. Carrying little or no luggage, and with small amounts of cash, almost all followed the same route, hitch-hiking across Europe to Athens and on to Istanbul, then by train through central Turkey via Erzurum, continuing by bus into Iran, via Tabriz and Tehran to Mashad, across the Afghan border into Herat, through southern Afghanistan via Kandahar to Kabul, over the Khyber Pass into Pakistan, via Rawalpindi and Lahore to the Indian frontier. Once in India, hippies went to many different destinations but gathered in large numbers on the beaches of Goa,[73] or crossed the border into Nepal to spend months in Kathmandu. .In Kathmandu, most of the hippies hung out in tranquil surrounding of a place called Freak Street[74] (Nepal Bhasa: Jhoo Chhen) which still exists near Kathmandu Durbar Square.^ Christian (most importantly), and though it cost me some brain cells, I still am happy with my stint as a hippie !

Drugs

Tahquitz Canyon, Palm Springs, California, 1969, sharing a joint
Following in the well-worn footsteps of the Beats, the hippies also used cannabis (marijuana), considering it pleasurable and benign. They enlarged their spiritual pharmacopeia to include hallucinogens such as LSD, psilocybin, and mescaline. On the East Coast of the United States, Harvard University professors Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner and Richard Alpert (Ram Dass) advocated psychotropic drugs for psychotherapy, self-exploration, religious and spiritual use. Regarding LSD, Leary said, "Expand your consciousness and find ecstasy and revelation within."[81]
According to the hippies, LSD was the glue that held the Haight together. It was the hippie sacrament, a mind detergent capable of washing away years of social programming, a re-imprinting device, a consciousness-expander, a tool that would push us up the evolutionary ladder.
On the West Coast of the United States, Ken Kesey was an important figure in promoting the recreational use of psychotropic drugs, especially LSD, also known as "acid." By holding what he called "Acid Tests", and touring the country with his band of Merry Pranksters, Kesey became a magnet for media attention that drew many young people to the fledgling movement. The Grateful Dead (originally billed as "The Warlocks") played some of their first shows at the Acid Tests, often as high on LSD as their audiences. Kesey and the Pranksters had a "vision of turning on the world."[81] .Harder drugs, such as amphetamines and heroin were also used in hippie settings; however, these drugs were often disdained, even among those who used them, because they were recognized as harmful and addictive.^ There is also a remnant of those who seek love and truth because some became Jesus Freak s especially among those who are burdened down with everyday life .

Simple English

[[File:|thumb|300px|Two hippies attending the Woodstock Festival, in August 1969.]]

A hippie (sometimes spelled as hippy) is a label for a person of a certain counterculture that started in the United States and spread to other countries in the 1960s.

Hippies have their own views on drug use, sexual liberation, and women's rights.

History

The first people to be called "hippies" were young adults and teenagers in the 1960's who grew out of the beatnik movement. These people were supporters of civil rights for African-Americans in the Southern USA. They soon developed their own music scene in neighborhoods in New York City (Greenwich Village) and San Francisco (Haight-Ashbury). They were also strongly against the Vietnam War, nuclear weapons, and what they called the "Establishment" (this was a word for the government and other authority). They were also against the "military-industrial complex". This phrase was taken from a warning in the farewell speech of President Dwight Eisenhower in 1961.

Many more people began to see hippies in the news after the Human Be-In (January 1967) and the 1967 "Summer of Love" were held in San Francisco. By this time, they had developed their own lifestyle that included psychedelic styles, drug use, usually some amount of travel, and much longer hair than other people. These styles quickly spread across the country, especially to college campuses where students were protesting President Lyndon Johnson's policies in Vietnam, the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, and other events. They also spread to the UK, Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, among other places.

1968 was a time of excitement as many more Americans turned against the war following the Tet Offensive, King was shot, and politicians began to get ready for the election for President in November. Many colleges were shut down by students, and people burned their draft cards at public rallies. A group of radical hippies called the Yippies, led by Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, led a huge protest during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, where they tried to run a pig called Pigasus as a candidate for President. The mayor responded by sending in riot police who beat people up in front of news cameras. The riot police even beat the cameramen, reporters, and other innocent people. This was shown on the news, and many programs and television stations began to feel more sympathetic to the hippies. This made hippie lifestyle much more mainstream through the early seventies.

In 1969, Richard Nixon succeeded Johnson as President, and protests continued — not just against the war, but against the court trials and hearings of the Yippie leaders who became known as "the Chicago Seven" (originally "Chicago Eight"). Also in that year, a huge rock concert was held in Bethel, New York — the three day Woodstock Festival. At this festival, 500,000 hippies and music fans heard some of the most famous singers and groups of the time. The people there also did wild behavior like nudism, nude swimming, mud-sliding, rain-dancing and mass tribal chants. They did this to show their freedom to the world.

Late that year, a murderer named Charles Manson who posed as a hippie killed several people. Because some people blamed hippies for this, the term began to fall a little out of fashion in 1970, even if the fashions themselves did not. A new type of hard rock called heavy metal was developing out of one style of hippie music. A band called Led Zeppelin took the number one spot for most popular band of the year in 1970, which had been held by the Beatles for eight years. Also that year, students at Kent State University in Ohio were protesting Nixon's spread of bombing to Laos. When the were protesting, the National Guard shot at them, and four were killed. This had a chilling effect on the hippies and the whole country, but the peace movement continued. In 1973, the draft was ended, and the war ended soon after that. US public attention turned to the Watergate scandal. After this, hippies never again had the attention they once did, though the lifestyle continued, especially in other countries. In the mid-seventies, trends like punks and disco were also spreading, causing the hippie image to fade in the media.
