Doug, it’s ALWAYS about the Hippies. ALWAYS, FUCKING ALWAYS. There’s nothing in this country you can’t blame on hippies and get away with it seems, because Americans can’t suffer a hippie to live.
I don’t think EVERYTHING can be blamed on hippies, there are also things can better be blamed on strapping young bucks. Though it’s also true that it was hippie social welfare programs that turned all the strapping young bucks into moochers and looters.
Sometimes I wonder, though, who will be blamed for everything when no one can remember hippies anymore. Any ideas? I have noticed a lot of inexplicable hate towards hipsters (my own two cents here: I do dislike hipster music, but I like hipster food, coffee, and cocktails), but I’m not sure they’ll ever make such great scapegoats.
