We lived in a derelict farmhouse, surrounded by sceptical locals - as did everyone else in the Glens.

Whatchoo you talkin' about, Willis?
Rots should have headed North all those years ago and saved myself a lot of grief then !:lol:(and little bonnie girls reciting Yeats on Bushmills casks, creates such a romantic frisson of our North Cousins.

There still is hippies they are in the green party.
More like a shower of uni knob heads that thought kaftan and tie dyed shirts were a cool way to stand out.

Between that, San Francisco, & the Mamas and the Papas you have it sounding precisely like a certain soundtrack!

I always dated it a bit later myself, maybe Meredith Hunter?

The debt of the axis of evil of FFFGLAB ;) is something that we will die with.

The hippies had their heart in the right place.

Which is the wrong place as far as the state (exploit the masses via divide and conquer, fear and state funded hysterical media) is concerned.

I would LOVE my descedants to be able to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the death of the DEBT of the Trifecalate of FFFGLAB.

The Hippies and Charlie Manson

Bikers such as the Hells Angels, Outlaws, Pagans etc seen the Hippies as easy prey, also Charlie Manson and his 'family' tarnished the expectation of Nirvana :)
There was a lot in Hippie "ideology" (if you could dignify it with that term) and lifestyle that aligned them with criminals - not least their drug abuse and their attitude that police were the enemy. The prosecutor at the Manson trial described Charlie as a "Right Wing Hippie". When someone suggested that Manson's female "Family" were naive middle class girls corrupted by a working class criminal, the prosecutor replied that they had rotted their brains with drugs and promiscuity and if Manson hadn't come along, it would have been someone else!

Nearly 20 yrs ago as we were traveling towards height ashbury from the city centre our taxi driver who was of the summer of love vintage kept pointing out all the drug rehab clinics, there seemed to be one or two on each block.

He said drugs were already a part of the port area culture, especially amongst the navy who'd ship them in from asia and when a clampdown there hit the national media it ended up attracting people from everywhere who wanted to get high.

It was kinda depressing seeing all the 60s deadheads wondering around, no different I suppose the 90s pillheads we see now.

The Rolling Stones Altamont concert (December 2009) suggests a more typical attitude to the police. Four months after Woodstock the Stones hired a Hells Angels gang to provide security apparently viewing them as "noble savages" and thus "outlaw brothers of the counterculture". The concert descended into chaos with 4 deaths including one stabbed to death by the "Angels".
On This Day: Four Die at Rolling Stones
The Altamont Concert, held only four months after the generation-defining Woodstock Festival in upstate New York, was seen by many as the end of hippie culture, and marked the death of the ’60s, a decade famous for social, musical and sexual revolutions.

Remember that the biggest stars of the "summer of love" (at least in the US anyway) weren't the long haired hippies that most would associate with that time.
