If you were still a hippie by 1976, you were problably a homeless bum or some nutcase living in a treehouse. There were guys running around with ponytails, like "Hey! I used to be a hippie!" Pathetic. (In the 80's, hollywood started casting old hippies with ponytails as assasin gunmen wearing suits- weird. After we lost the Vietnam war, anything militaristic or violent was greatly frowned upon by the populace. No one would dare buy a toy gun or G.I. Joe doll for their kid. The nation just kind of moped around in guilt and defeat. The culture had no direction untill "Star Wars" came out. It taught us that war was just about the most fun you could have! By 1981 there wasn't much left of the hippie philosophy, whatever that was, But George Lucas and freinds perpetuated it and at the same time blew parts of it out of the water.
