"The times were outrageous. There were a couple of hundred thousand hippies on the streets in San Francisco. Tripping on LSD was pandemic. Sometimes it seemed as if the whole city smelled of reefer smoke. Grass was $75 a kilo, Acapulco Gold was $250 a kilo, acid was $2.50 a hit, and so was a rock-and-roll ticket. Every circle on the street had a joint circulating around the inside, and the rock halls were jammed with stoned trippers."


Stephen Gaskin From Monday Night Class





"I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix"

Revolution is a documentary film by Jack O' Connell made in San Francisco in 1967.
Primarily filmed in the Hippie Hill and Panhandle areas of Golden Gate Park, this "60s San Francisco Hippie Scene" documentary features interviews with those who call themselves hippies, or identify with hippies. The counter-culture is revealed in discussions about sex, drugs, philosophy and lifestyle.

In contrast to the hippies of the 1960s who were decidedly antiscience and antitechnology,
the cyberpunks of the 1980s and 1990s ecstatically embraced technology and the hacker ethic.

 In the twentieth century United States, the bohemian impulse was famously seen in the 1940s hipsters, the 1950s Beat generation (exemplified by writers such as William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti), the much more widespread 1960s counterculture, and 1960s and 1970s hippies.

I feel that understanding the concept of the "Other" Is a very important step in understanding our world and how it runs in regard to issues of war, racism and the myriad of social ills we have. Many countercultures and sub-cubcultures are considered by many as "Other"

Anti-authoritarianism
Antiestablishmentarianism
Several factors distinguished the counterculture of the 1960s from the anti-authoritarian movements of previous eras.

After World War II there was a strong sense of anti-authoritarianism.
Anti-authoritarianism has been associated with countercultural and bohemian movements.
In the 1950s the Beat Generation "were politically radical, and to some degree their anti-authoritarian attitudes were taken up by activists in the 1960s.
The hippie and larger counterculture movements of the 1960s carried out a way of life and activism which was ideally carried through anti-authoritarian and non-violent means.
