Hippie Crap Saves The World! "Here is what conservatives hate most: the idea that you really can, and do, make a difference. That you, hopefully working to align yourself with something deeper and more informed and perhaps not exactly Christian, or corporate, not exactly lockstep mainstream flag-waving God-fearing asexual consumer drone, you can affect the world, directly, right now, in ways you might not even realize, in ways that make them tremble and wince, in how much you laugh and love and eat and sleep and screw and breathe and in how deeply you penetrate into the soul's raison d'etre."

This post was deleted for the following reason: seems like a lame op-ed. too silly.

Actually, most of the "hippies" I've seen are just as conformist as everyone else. The only difference is that they follow the ideals of their own little cliques instead of the really big cliques everyone else belongs to.

Well-written (better than your usual Neal Pollack, or anything I could've written right now), thought-provoking, semi-unique-angled Op-Ed piece, but still an Op-Ed piece. I'd warn you to prepare for the wrath of mathowie, but the Supreme Being of MeFi has been rather slow on the delete finger lately, so, if you can still see this comment at 9:00AM PST of April 10th, nevermind, bygones, my bad and d'oh.

I couldn't find one single coherent thought or sentence in that pile of words. What, exactly, was the point?
