How hippies changed the world

BBC 4 has a series "The Summer of Love: How Hippies Changed the World."

The changes were not for the better. My research shows that.



Gonorrhea shot up, tripling itself in a decade.






Divorces shot up, doubling within a decade.






Illegitimate births began skyrocketing.






Drug abuse rocketed into outer space.






Crime rate shot up.

Of course, the hippies are not responsible for all this. But the hippie movement emphasizing free love and all that certainly facilitated the upheaval, the ill effects we still feel today.

The middle class values that hippies rebelled against were the rockbed of our society.

The Left considers the American middle class an enemy.

The seeds of President Trump's election may gave been sown at Haight-Ashbury in 1967, when an atheistic free love movement that pushed poisons to society such as drug abuse and the destruction of marriage.

For all his playboy pretensions, President Trump -- like Reagan -- represents the squares who believe in family, hard work, sobriety, and above all, God.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. I have always said that the Woodstock generation did more to destroy this country than any enemy could have. They not only caused the things you mention, but they destroyed any concept of a strong military, and the subsequent strong country that a strong military provides for. Every single politician is scared to death to put boots on the ground. In addition, that stupid blind generation is responsible for allowing ISIL to penetrate the very heart of our nation.

  2. I do believe Franklin Graham and Jerry Fallwell Jr. may have had an impact on Trump and his family.

    1. That was unnecessary. It does, however, serve as an example of the coarsening of public discourse.

    2. I removed it. Cannot tell if it was from a hippie or an insane person, not that there is much difference.

  4. Mom used to blame all the current problems in the world on the Sixties. The older I get, the more I think she might have had a point.

  5. I graduated HS in '77. I used to joke with my pals about what happens when the hippies take over? When they get old enough to become the "man"?
    It's not so funny now that it's real.

  6. Hippies were open and obvious about their moral preferences, but the so-called War on Poverty left a much bigger trail of destruction. Paying single women to have babies who would grow up without fathers is, in my opinion, the single biggest cause of rising crime rates, drug abuse, etc. And it is self-sustaining, steadily growing, and eating away at the fabric of our society. It is an enormous expense to the taxpayer not only for the up-front cost of welfare, housing, food stamps, etc., but the incidental costs incurred by the crimes, drug abuse, and the cost of maintaining and/or dealing with all the above. - Elric

    1. I agree about the family breakup. "President Trump -- like Reagan -- represents the squares who believe in family, hard work, sobriety, and above all, God." I admired Reagan, but Reagan was as bad as Trump at his worse until Nancy straightened him out.

  7. I was that age and I could tell. Once the bloom wore off, they'd all go back to Daddy's stock brokerage fire.
