I have noticed that most hippies are Lefties these days. Hippies, as demonstrated in my earlier blog on this subject, were not Lefty politicos; they were non-political.
The hippies and the Left have converged in the past decade. What the hippies did believe in was immanent Armageddon due to human moral failings. In the 1970 hippie era the expected Armageddon was based on over population, mass starvation, resource scarcity and nuclear winter.
Now the aging hippies are comfortable to join with the Left and the Left to join with the hippies in the CO2 Armageddon hysteria (human induced global warming).
