The Hippie Vision

With mainstream media promoting American Empire 24/7, it might seem like we have entered a New Dark Age, but American culture--distorted as it is--is more nuanced.

When the hippie counter-culture movement emerged in the 1960s, it represented a rejection of militarism, racism and sexism. The demonization of the hippie movement by mainstream media since then was a reaction to the radical restructuring of American society that the hippies envisioned.

Now, a half-century later, hippie values have attained a cultural influence that the ruling elite appears unable to stop. Witness the vast support for the Sanders campaign, that nearly defeated the warmongering Hillary Clinton.
