Hippies gave us wonderful things, but they left an evil legacy too

Quote:

In my younger days, when I myself wore my hair long and may have dabbled in the occasional Red Dragon, Purple Om and Roobarb ’n’ Custard, I think I might have been quite surprised to learn that the hippies I idealised at the time — well, I liked Easy Rider, and used to play Jefferson Airplane’s ‘White Rabbit’ more often than was good for me — in fact shared the same ideological roots as the Hitler Youth.

Not now I’m older and wiser, I don’t. Beneath the kaftan of every other hippie beats the heart of a fascist — the intolerance, the zeal, the control-freakery — and it all stems from that moment, pinpointed in the documentary, when a left-wing activist and Berkeley drop-out named Jerry Rubin had a sudden insight: that there were more hippies than there were radicals.

The unfortunate result of this was that Rubin and his ilk realised that they could prey like vampires on these fluffy-headed flower children and turn their innocent yearning for peace, love and drug-addled sex into something much more dangerous, whose effects we are ruing to this day.

All that long hair, those beads, the patchouli, the starry eyes, the psychedelic sounds of the Grateful Dead; they were really just a kandy-kolored, tangerine-flake Trojan Horse for the values — or rather the anti-values — that have gone on to make our culture so weak, decadent and vulnerable to destruction by more iron-willed invaders.

This was, of course, exactly what influential campus thinkers of the time such as German-born cultural Marxist philosopher Herbert Marcuse wanted. For them, free love, female emancipation, black empowerment, the groovy rejection of authority and pursuit of the self — all sugar-coated with a great soundtrack and lashings of lovely psychotropics — were really just a means to an end: the death of the family, the dismantling of the system, and, ultimately the destruction of western civilisation

But what I’m decreasingly convinced by, the older I get, is the notion that the creative and orgiastic upside to all this licensed hedonism anywhere near compensated us for the profound and perhaps irreparable damage it has done to our culture. I’m no puritan: I agree with the great Ian Dury that ‘sex and drugs and rock’n’roll are very good indeed.’ What I find objectionable, nay unforgivable, is the way that what should have been escapist holidays instead became the day job too; and the way that, worse still, they became so inextricably bound with such toxically idiotic politics.

Jerry Rubin died a rich man. (Never trust a hippie.) Whatever corner of hell he’s now sitting in, it’s not nearly hot enough to punish him and his kind for the evil legacy they left us under the guise of peace and love.

Im not sure what being an anarchist has to do w/ anything but look around. This culture, nation was founded on personal liberties, freedoms. Where have they gone? It was everything that was not strictly forbidden was allowed as long as it did not cause direct harm to another person or their property. Remember those...property rigbts?

Now there is a general belief from the leftists that our rights are granted by the state. That the collective outweighs the individual. Then there is there economic vampirism explained in detail here. https://youtu.be/BZJDTod_fXs

That is all ontop of the cultural Marxism that the article in the OP refers to.

It's pretty simple. Sabcat loves to make ALL simple things complicated.

Bottom line: Sabcat hates Baby Boomers. Somehow the Boomers are responsible for the collapse and disintegration of the U.S.
