  Hippie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hippie, occasionally spelled hippy, is a term commonly used to refer to some of the disaffected youth of the 1960s and early 1970s.
The roots of the hippie movement are variously dated to the back-to-nature movement that surfaced in Europe during the nineteenth century, to the naturalist movements of late eighteenth-century Europe, or even to the early Essenes, who date from the 2nd century BC to the 1st century AD.
Although hippies were sometimes accused of verbally attacking soldiers returning home from duty in Vietnam, or participating in the torching of ROTC buildings on college campuses, with the exception of a small radical fringe element hippies did not verbally assault military personel and did not condone acts of political violence.

Hippie marketing: "When we started, we knew a couple of hundred people who climbed, and we invited them to try the gym.

 The Mavens' Word of the Day   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Though the word hip--it's of unknown origin--is first found at the turn of the century, and hipster (and hepster) were around by the late 1930s, hip as a cultural phenomenon is more indicative of the late 1940s and 1950s, when an awareness of hip spread into mainstream America.
The word hippie was used throughout the 1950s in jazz slang meaning 'a person who is, or who attempts to be, hip', and was often used derisively in the sense of someone who is very square but who tries to be hip.
The 1960s sense is roughly 'a young, longhaired person of the 1960s who dressed unconventionally, held various antiestablishment attitudes and beliefs, and typically advocated communal living, free love, pacifist or radical politics, and the use of hallucinogenic drugs', and hence 'any person resembling a hippie of the '60s in dress, attitude, behavior, etc.'.

 The essential hippie reference - World - www.smh.com.au
The vocabulary of the hippie era came in large part from the beat generation, jazz and blues music, African-American culture, Eastern religion and the British musical invasion of the early 1960s, McCleary said.
As part of their counter-cultural thinking, hippies tended to imbue words and phrases with new meanings, many of them related to drugs and sexuality - topics The Hippie Dictionary does not shirk.
McCleary said his editorialising is necessary because the hippie era was a very opinionated period and some of the themes he touches on help illustrate the hippie philosophy.
