Happily Hippie argues the Counterculture is a living 50-year- old ethnicity and explains Hippiedom’s
ethnogenesis. We’ll learn how anti-Hippie demagoguery has warped American politics, how the War on
Drugs is largely about persecuting Hippie-America and how today’s legalization movement is about
Hippie-America fighting for social equality. Happily Hippie considers the Counterculture’s many
accomplishments, including inventing the Personal Computer; it estimates over 30 million Hippie-
Americans and includes crude demographic maps of Hippie-America. We’ll look at Hippies in
philanthropy, Hollywood, sports, various arts, new medicine, the natural-foods industry, the Green
movement and around the globe. We’ll see how stereotypes of Hippies echo those of other minorities,
explore Hippie self-esteem issues, look at Hippie generational transfer, and do some fun media analysis.
We’ll also consider the creation of a Hippie-American Ethnic Organization. A paradigm shifter, this
original, interesting and important book will change your head; it can change this world.
