The Hippie Movement Quiz
Controversy surrounded the Hippie Movement from its very first days. The stated purpose of the movement was to generally promote peace and harmony all across the world. Since peace and harmony are things that most people can get behind on a conceptual level, it was a touch bizarre how reviled the hippies became in their own time.
Their very existence became a polarizing topic in America. Many saw them as young people trying to make the world a better place. Others saw them as loons who irresponsibly challenged social conventions with no practical goal in mind. Perhaps the truth of what the hippies were varies from member to member. What is certain is that the hippies changed the landscape of American politics.
Strangely enough, they may have had the opposite impact on the nation’s political future than they intended. Reactionary neoconservatism sprang up in firm rejection of the hippies and everything that they stood for. While they were active, though, the hippies continuously shocked the world. They heralded a counterculture in art and ethics which inspired new waves of trends.
In this quiz, we will be looking back at The Hippie Movement as a whole from its roots to its end. We will also be discussing a broad range of topics related to the movement including notable leaders of the movement, pieces of art that held value among hippie culture, and especially the historical deeds the hippies performed during their brief time as a social force.
As much as to test, this quiz is meant to inform. So, we hope you come out of it knowing something new.
