  publish.nyc.indymedia.org | Why Hipsters Aren't All That Hip
For example, people working in the service industry are encouraged to display their status as hipsters, to be their subcultural selves, because in so doing they contribute to the aura of cool that attracts clientele of the financially endowed sort (the "urban tourists" consisting largely of yuppies, "amateurs," the insufficiently hip).
This would mean contributing to their own demise as hipsters, because without capitalism, there can be no such thing as "hip." At least not "hip" in its current articulation, which depends on elements of today's society that would likely disappear were it transformed along socialist and radically democratic lines.
Not necessarily, but so long as what hipsters long for is forever located in the past rather than recognized as a future that certain kinds of struggle could make possible, they are able to ignore their complicity in capitalist domination.

 Hipster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although hipsters could be fl or white, the term later and more predominantly came to be used to refer to whites who were aficionados of the music, groupies and members of the so-called Bohemian set, or Beat Generation.
Hipsters were sometimes referred to as beatniks, a term coined by San Francisco columnist Herb Caen after the Sputnik satellite from Russia.
Many hipster terms generally fell out of use in mainstream, white society with the changing of styles and the coming of hippies in the 1960s, but have remained in use in the African-American community, where they were neither in nor out of fashion, but simply part of the traditional lexicon.

 Modulator: Angelheaded Hipsters
By 1945 hip had completely replaced hep in informed circles, cat had come to mean any aware person (by the 1950s it was to mean any person at all), and hipster was beginning to mean a devotee of the new "progressive jazz" from the West Coast.
During the decade of 1945-55 hipster drifted away from its jazz meaning and was applied to any hip or cool youth.
My understanding and usage of the word is rooted in the beatnik era meaning and if todays 'hipsters' are going to earn their place in the word's lineage they will have to make a stronger effort.

But the thing that really makes hipsters so fucking annoying is that they don't have to struggle for anything, but they seem to pretend that they are struggling, they pretend that they know what it's like to struggle.
But these people usually end up realizing that they are simply too talented to hang on the coattails of a hipster clan, and that the reason they couldn't 'fit in' was because they were no good at pretending: They were not one of life's actors.
