PATROL K-POT for a nonce, I’d like to make a request.
It has been brung to my attention that a lot of you-lot have been abusing the word “hippie” to refer to certain middle-aged and seasoned citizen leftists in ponytails, tattered blue jeans, and birkenstocks.
This is incorrect.
In truth, there has not been a genuine and authentic hippie since before Woodstock. A ceremony was held in the Haight to commemorate the Death of the Hip in October of 1967. All those who came after were merely poseurs, Alger included (He was 13 at the time.).
The correct term of art, as coined by the Maharushi, is “Long-haired, maggot-infested, dope-smoking, good-time, plastic-banana, FM types.”
Please make a note of it.
