During the 1980s we saw Devils in heaven and Hippies in hell.
This, of course, is backwards.
It owes its nature to the inverse practices of Satanism in rock music and entertainment combined with the counter-revolutionary politics of Ronald Reagan.
Unfortunately the Hippie Generation was forcibly reconstructed.
All that remains is having a good time and holidays.
Any remnant of idealism is long forgotten.
But the ideals of peace and love that typified the Hippies was in fact closer to the nature of God than either the traditional Church or the popular culture.
This, of course, is provided you can discriminate between peace and love and sex and drugs and rock and roll.
The Hippies' rock legends disguised their diabolism as the sexual revolution of the 1960s and the decadence of the 1970s.
They were in fact no better than their black descendants.
But this is not the fault of the Baby-Boomer Generation whose idealism and spirituality were betrayed by their rock legends.
My prayer is that this idealism and spirituality can be resurrected without the parasites of rock and roll.
To do this we must distill the essence of Hippie idealism which is: peace, love, equality, compassion, non-violence, integrity, tolerance, and multi-culturalism.
From the detritus of rock music which is: promiscuous sex, drugs, suicide, decadence, anti-social behavior, indulgence, escapism, negativity, and hate.
Only then will the Age of Aquarius survive.
