The Hippie Generation set out to change the world.
Peace and Love combined with Civil Rights to rise up against the powers of the world.
But we were betrayed by our rock stars into a life of drugs and degradation.
Sex and drugs and rock and roll wrecked a whole generation of idealists.
But it was not until the 1980s that our ideals were destroyed.
Ronald Reagan and Generation X attacked our ideals in a violent rebellion against our politics.
Psychic violence and political pressure reconstructed the Hippie Generation en mass.
Now we merely enjoy our pleasures and pursue distractions which feed the economy and the Status Quo.
