I'm not a smurfing hippy but can understand the whole movement. As far as I know, the hippy's were born in the sixties, or maybe teens in the sixties.
The problem is that there is no such thing as peace without force.
Without a strong military on our side we would have ended up at war with Russia.
Without strength at home the thugs would rule the street.
Peace the way hippies see it only works if everybody on earth wants to play that way, and since man has been around there have always been people that you needed defended against.
We all want a peaceful life, but without brave young people defending that way of life it simply can't happen.
To be a hippie you have to abandon a lot of reality about the world.
