- Producer22/11/2016Are the Millennials the new Hippies?I was born in the late 80s and that means I am a Millennial. But what makes us the generation we are?What defines us, the Millennials? First of all, we are always connected to the news and information and we are kind of addicted to our smartphones....

The hippies failed by allowing their movement to become about a lot of drugs and sex and more of a hedonistic approach to life not taking into account the effects of such behavior.
The edge of technology is something the hippies never had.
The Millenials have old hippies to talk to that the hippies never had.
There wasn't a generation that had tried before for the hippies to go to in times of need of guidance.
I am part of Gen X, the generation that feels guilty that we didn't do it.
I can think back as the hippy movement started making a comeback when I was in High School however we so brow beaten by the boomers, our parents we folded.
The Millenials have a lot of people that are older that are on their side that the hippies never had.22/11/2016 #11 Gerald Hecht#10 @Phillip Hubbell Where there was a sort of "official organization" for a time...Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin...but ...yeah; their commitment (especially Rubin's, lol) to a "coherent program" seemed to: 1) have a short attention span
and 2) sort of lost motivation...and 3)...umm; oh wow man... I forgot what 3) was.22/11/2016 #10 Phillip HubbellThe Hippie movement in California was over before it started in Texas. It was a phase that lasted me from about the 8th grade until 12th, or from age 13-18. 1968-1973. It centered mostly around music and the quest for girls. In Texas, there was a fast car component, long hair, clothes. And speech patterns. It had little lasting impact on my thinking processes as it was fairly superficial. It was something to grow out of as adult needs and goals took hold.22/11/2016 #9 Gerald Hecht#8 @Randy Keho well --of course not all of the baby boomers were hippies; not all of those that were --went into policy...I think ultimately, it's not even about "hippies"...at all...it's about fulcrum points in history; a large demographic coming of age in a time of "bad craziness". People respond in different ways; to me the image of a hippie was that of someone who recognized/recognizes that the prevailing values at a given time are due for a recalibration...in a direction that is more "towards nature (the habitat we require to exist)" and less "towards separating from (and utilizing technology to conquer) nature...but I know...this whole Trump thing seems like such a bummer...and all these squares trying to bring me down with their rules.22/11/2016 #8 Randy KehoIt should be interesting to see how millennials evolve into politicians. The original "hippies" didn't do so well.
At President-elect Trump's request, Tulsi Garrard, D-Hawaii, a two-tour veteran and millennial, met with him yesterday, which is considered "bad form" as a member of the other party. He requested her input on Serbia and foreign policy. She serves on the House Armed Services Committee and often challenged President Obama and his policies. Talk of her being offered a position in the Trump administration is highly unlikely. However, she broke with the Democratic Party over their treatment of Bernie Sanders.
I applaud her for apparently putting the country ahead of politics.
