    Just as the title reads. So maybe one wants to become a hippy. How does one go about it exactly?

    Eat shrooms, stop bathing. Crank up the Jefferson Airplane?

    Abandon all personal hygiene, wear old, ill-fitting clothes, start doing pot, 'shrooms, and LSD. Listen to crappy "we are the world music.

    Enjoy.

    So you can't bathe & be a hippy?

    That puts a huge dampener on the sexy free-love I hear about.

    Be a non mainstream spiritual person who thinks that the modern world is the cause of problems and the only solution is for only the progress you like to be allowed.

    Hippy or not, I'm staying away from the chick with one sock. I'll pay for love elsewhere. :ack:

    Maybe we can just list the 5 essential things it takes to become a successful hippy and we will just assume we all stay away from the chick with one sock.

    1)

    3)
    4)

    You forgot the liberal use of the word, "man," in every sentence, Che Guevara T-shirts and eating only natural foods grown organically on a commune or stolen, uh, liberated from the facists running the grocery store.

    I would imagine a young person becomes a hippy the same way one becomes a jock, cowboy, goth, headbanger, skatepunk, chess-club nerd, etc. You associate with those with whom you share common values and interests. HH

    That would be antithetical to the philosophy of 'Do Your Own Thing,' no?

    You try your best to look like John Lennon. Singing "Imagine" several times a day will help.

    One of lifes great ironies is how "heard" most "do your own thing" movements are.

    As Lady Rabbi once quipped when looking at footage of Sturgis (and well aware of the Harley mythos)... "Look at all those identical individuals..."

    We really dont have many choices in this world. We have the illusion of choices. Right, left. Red, Blue....whatever. We tend to fight over degrees, not real differences.

    For example, something as fundamental as our clothes. Our most basic expression of who we are. Unless we make all of our own clothes (and even then) We dont really get a choice. We get a selection.

    I have come to realize that only those who have rid themselves of all things worldly, (think a monk who would set themselves on fire to prove a point) or the most powerful (who set the rules) are actually "free." The rest of us (which is pretty much everyone) Are dealt our options and are under the illusion we are free and yeah, we have some freedom but again, it is a degree, within a finite range.

    The saving grace is, even though it is very difficult, we do have the outside chance to either give all up or rise to the very top.

    You have to believe that smoking should be outlawed, but pot should be legalized.

    You have to believe that the military / industrial complex is the most dangerous force the world has ever known and yet be in favor of big government as the solution to most of soceity's problems.

    You have to believe that "all organic" foods should be mandated by law but that the government should do more to feed the hungry.

    I could go on...

    Don't have a job but tell me cars should be banned so I can't t to mine.

    Believe that government is bad but rely on welfare and food stamps.

    Believe in free love but don't believe in being responsible for the children you create.

    Believe in banning the death penalty but it is OK to abort unwanted children you created.

    Manson was just misunderstood.

    Paul is really dead. And it matters.

    Believe that government should be both big (so it can dole out the goodies) and small (so it doesn't infringe on your sensitive individuality) at the same time.

    You have to go around sticking flowers down rifle barrels.
