it's true that almost any movement that gathers enough steam inevitably gets watered down so that the lowest common denominator can either understand it, or at least feel they're participating. i suppose the difference between the suburban kids decking themselves out in bell-bottoms and growing their hair in the 60s and today's "free information" generation, is that the people behind the hippie movement weren't ripping off artists and raping the world to the tune of billions in profit.
