Listen, there’s a difference between a person who was a beatnik/hippie because they didn’t like the ‘acceptable’ roles available to them or believed in something like socialism or pacifism, and the people who were beatnik/hippies because they had a drug problem and that was the most common way to dress it up at the time. You still have these people, they just aren’t wearing macrame anymore. They’re more likely to look like frat boys/girls now. I’ve worked for a few of the first kind and many of them did prove to be successful in business, and none of the second kind, because they typically couldn’t keep it together to keep their own jobs.
But you righties just keep on slapping yourselves on the back and talking about how superior you are. It amuses the hell out of me.
