"What we don't know about hippies."
Many people have a big misunderstanding about hippie impression, let's start with American society in the 60 's. At that time, whites were still hostile to blacks, homosexuality was seen as a cancer, young people were dazed by the future, the inner passion and anguish of the same huge and much-needed outlet ... so people started to fight, and various civil rights movements and hippie generations came into being. What is hippie? In the minds of many, a group of disheveled hair and a flower on his head are probably first appeared.

The hippies are also advocating the promotion of various civil rights movements.
The hippie opposition is mild and idealistic, paying more attention to the situation of homosexuals and women's rights, and advocating nature and loyalty to themselves. As for marijuana, LSD, promiscuity, sloppy ... And so on negative impressions, just superficial foreign phase, the true spirit and deep meaning is often misinterpreted by the media and people. (You see: feminism always asks for privileges?) When feminism becomes a negative label ... )
Woodstock's slogan is: "woodstock,3 days ofPeace & Music", artists and groups invited to perform almost all have a clear ideology, and most clearly express the anti-war and support of the pro-democracy movement position.
