All right, we all know what the Hippies stood for: peace and love and removing socially repressive barriers imposed by mainstream culture. Sort of modern-day Dionysians, except with LDS and marijuana instead of wine…
They self-describe as being peaceful, accepting, laid-back… When one hears the word, we think of open-air music festivals, free love, the ‘peace’ movement, bad hair and ‘punch-Buggies’ painted in psychadelic colours and other similar cultural icons of the 60’s era.
Here is my question:
What can we conclude about the Hippie counterculture from the fact that they self-branded with the only car whose distinctive ‘look’ was designed by Adolf Hitler?
