But the hippies were the first generation turning against their parents. Why? Because we didn’t feel happier in having gadgets, in having materialism, in having financial security. Our happiness was based much more on friendship, love and peace in this world. And it was based on seeing dear mother earth and its nature and animals not being wasted away. So that’s the sort of happiness we wanted! One can’t really blame parents for that though, as it’s the whole system that would need to be turned around.
