World is continuously changing with time. Many movements were lead to change the mind set and way of living. These evolutions make humans more aware of their social rights. Hippie is one of these movements. The hippie (or hippy) counterculture movement was originally a youth movement that started in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries including Canada and Britain. They reject the mores of mainstream American life.
The word ‘hippie’ came from hipster. There are many reasons of evolution of this movement. One reason that we can give for the rise of the Hippie movement is the materialism and conformity of the 1950s. The people who had lived through World War II (and much of the Depression as well) really wanted to build comfortable lives for themselves. They had enough of hardship and wanted material comforts.
Their children grew up with more material goods than their parents had, but they also felt that their parents cared only about material goods. They felt that their parents lacked any real feelings and humanity in their lives. Therefore, they rebelled. They felt like they were going to create a new culture that was less concerned with material goods and with conforming to society’s expectations. So they created their own communities, listened to psychedelic music, embraced these sexual revolution and used drugs. They casually wear folksy clothing and of beads, headbands etc.
