1960s Hippies Movement
By Kyler and Jaxon Hippies "The hippies were part of a youth movement. Adults and teenagers of any age participated in the movement. "Peace, love and personal liberties" were favored by hippies. The Hippie Life Hippies maintained a "chilled-out" view of life and didn't trouble themselves when planning for the future. They lived in the moment. Hippies were also easily noticeable for their long hair and their patchwork, or vintage clothing. Hippies "The term hippie may come from the word hip, which means 'tuned in' or aware."
The word "hippie" originated from saying hipster. Hipsters were beatniks who had moved to N.Y. City's Greenwich Village. Hippie Goals The hippie's number one goal in life was staying happy and not be offended by other people's thoughts. The hippies had a policy that stated, "If it feels good, do it." This particular attitude brought no concern for the consequences of their actions. Hippies Way of Life Hippies declined the customs, traditions, and life styles of the world and made up their own. The majority of hippies were middle-class white families and were aged between 15 to 25. Hippies thought in life was based on love of humanity. Hippies thought this wonderful world would come from expressing your feelings and behaving naturally. Inspirations Hippies inspired a number of aspects of the United States that most people don't know about. Hippies inspired clothing, music, way of life, etc. Peace Out Bro!!

Hippies often went from place to place looking for temporary jobs. The Beatles helped spread the movement through their songs. "In time the hippies realized it was not easy to reform from society by 'dropping out' of it. Some joined more organized political movements to work for specific social causes. Others turned to spirituality or religion. The majority simply left the hippie stage of their lives behind while trying to hold on to at least a few of the ideals that once inspired them" Hippie Movement Hippie Movement The hippie movement constituted a rebel-lion against the simple institutions of society. Hippies had a goal to unlearn accepted social values and motivations through the use of psychedelic drugs. Hippie Movement The hippie movement created it's own culture. They encouraged "free love."
