Today we see many super hybrid 'new' hippie type subcultures that manifest sporadically with the core dynamics of the (hippie culture) as the common denominator within over a dozen primary hippie sub-cultures and exist healthily independently all over the globe. Popular political ideologies and values of the 60s and 70s have spawned new movements that are now grandfathering in yet more new movements evolving from the original hippies involving peace, animal rights, human rights, ecology, and cultural identity as some of the values passing through the new generations in their blood. It all makes me wonder as to whether or not that there may really be a "hippie gene." It certainly deserves some investigation considering that a real generation fully evolved (gene/generation)?
Many of these similar communities and social groups to ours can only be found as listings in paper directories like the IC Directory of Intentional Communities (which lists all alternative communities from religious cults to ecovillages) while others are online with classifieds on craigslist and yet others are active in social networks, then there are all the splinter groups of people that share our ideals in backpacking clubs, prepper networks, and university biological science departments.
