Peace, love, freedom.
The hippie subculture originated in the U.S. in the late 50-ies of XX century. The heyday of the movement, however, came at a later period, after nearly 10 years. Strictly speaking, the year of the emergence of the hippies can be considered as 1965. The peak of popularity, without a doubt, is the 1967 so-called “Summer of love”. More subtle and comprehensive intricacies of the musical and the social, the spiritual and the external will not find in any other subculture.
Young people, often from good families, just walked away from driven society life, from the puritanical morality of the Church, the military propaganda imposed by the government. Their life was a protest against the system, so peaceful, as you can imagine. Not wanting to be cogs in the soulless machine of the state, hippies created their own communes, where they lived by their rules. The most famous slogan: “Make love, not war” (“make love, not war”).
