I'm working on a project for my sociology Subcultures class and my group are comparing hippies of the 1960's to the neo-hippies of today. It's easy to find references for the counter culture movement of the 60's (and I have a few recollections as a child of the 60's to use as well) but I need some info on today's younger generation of hippies. Like, what issues are important to them (if any), what drugs are preferred among the neo-hippie culture, maybe some of the jargon used, what their views are on society, adults, government, global issues, environmentalism and modern technology and of course, music.

If anyone wants to weigh in (from old school hippiedom or the current hippie culture, particularly if you associate yourself with either subculture) I'd love to hear what you have to say.

Peace and Happiness, y'all

Wish I could help you but this
refers to me as a hippy.

You could do some good research in Santa Cruz.

I'm sure! Maybe if I stay in the world of academia, I might apply for a grant to study hippies in their environment! lol
The kids in my group (there are 5 of us in the group) are all early 20's and are amazed that I actually came in contact with a real live hippie when I was young. lol I told them my babysitter never wore shoes and brought her guitar to the house when she watched my brother and I. I guess my parents were pretty cool back then.... lol

You should go over to the Jambase forums. It's like they speak a different language over there! I think boomers=shrooms if that helps.

My sis and I ... our sons and all of their friends call us tree-huggers... lol. They are all in their 30's now and a lot of them went to some of their first concerts with these parental units. Old hippies, I guess. I've noticed with a lot of the young people I meet (like dancing at shows, for example ) that I often get this sense of amazement over the lifestyle and mindset of people back in the late 60's/early 70's. And a kind of wistful wishing, too ... I think the world is so much harder and more complicated today ... glad for coming of age in the times I did.

There are lots of "old hippies" in Santa Cruz. Young ones, too.
