its a little more obvious what the criteria was 30-40 yrs ago, but today things are a little clouded. where im going to school everyone loves the grateful dead, anything reggae, etc, and they do thier best to dress the part. only thing is, lots of these kids are rich, disrespectful, and do more than their fair share of ruining the environmnet. I grew up thinking hippies might smell a little, but that they were overall nice people. now that i live around tons of people that would probably consider them selves hippies in one way or another, im starting to change my mind a little.
