The hippie (also spelled hippy) countercultural movement began during the 1960s and 1970s and rejected many of the mores and norms of mainstream American life at the time. It later spread to other countries. The origins could be traced to involvement in opposition to the USA involvement in the Vietnam War and participation in musical festivals. Hippies generally felt alienated from the typical middle-class society and they developed its own distinctive lifestyle, favoring long hair and casual, typically wearing “psychedelic” colours for their clothes. They advocated nonviolence and love, originating the phrase being “Make love, not war,”. The musical ‘Hair‘, was a celebration of the hippie lifestyle and values. There is a legacy from this movement that still permeates aspects of western society today.
