16 Pictures That Show How Far Out Hippies Actually Were

It’s funny to be a millennial sometimes. You’re constantly told by older generations that you’re a little too self-absorbed or obsessed with making everything seem “picture perfect.” They talk about how we don’t live in the moment like they do, or we don’t play outside and go explore the world the way they used to.

But there’s no denying that those very people who make those complaints are the people who raised us to be exactly the way we are.

Of course, they might deny that they have anything to do with our current culture, but if these photos of hippies from the 1960s are anything to go off of then it’s clear that they have everything to do with current pop culture. Can we really say that the people who were part of that didn’t raise an interesting generation?

No, we can’t. But in case you’re feeling a little skeptical (are you a baby boomer?) here are some pretty amazing photos of hippies to show just how far out there hippies really were and why they have no right to judge us now in their old age.

Tell me this isn’t a ‘millennial’ Instagram photo, I dare you. We all know their kids probably recreated this at some music festival like Coachella or Veld in better clothes.

Honestly, I’m a little jealous that going topless was such a chill decision back then. It’s 2017 and when people see a topless girl on Instagram they all lose their minds.

There really isn’t much of a difference between the needs and wants of the people in the 60s and the people in 2017. Granted, some countries like Canada have made the strides to keep the people happy.

Okay, tell me that you haven’t seen someone post a photo like this on Instagram during music festival season. That’s right, you can’t.
