From the Paper:

"Hippies are people who believe that the way to peace is love. They believe that in order to love one another it is important that they accept one another the way that they are. Aside from this they also believe that they have to learn how to tolerate and accept the way that people are. Cruel society has often tried to push these types of people into a corner because it will not accept any type of people that seem to be antithetical to its beliefs and norms. Society only chooses those values, which can serve its own ends. Hippies are not termed as a group of people but as people who believe that the only way to find bliss in this world is through love and acceptance of people the way that they are, allowing them to be free to express themselves."
