"The 8th grade history book, titled America: Land I love, gives this lesson on hippies:Many young people turned to drugs and immoral lifestyles; these youth became known as hippies. They went without bathing, wore dirty, ragged, unconventional clothing, and deliberately broke all codes of politeness or manners. Rock music played an important part in the hippie movement and had great influence over the hippies. Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship.Of course, the devil’s influence extends beyond America’s “immoral” youth. Reads another textbook: “It is no wonder that Satan hates the family and has hurled his venom against it in the form of Communism.”http://www.alternet.org/education/hippies-demonized-louisian...Laugh or cry???To some people, the very existence of an alternative lifestyle is an affront, even an assault. So they lie about The Other, even about the past. And teach this drivel to kids. sigh.=alstro, ex-hippie (never dirty or ragged, seldom impolite, unfamiliar with Satan...I think)
