Hmmmm. 50 years on? Well this ain't gonna be the summer of love* 50 years later, in the age of Silicone Valley and Donald Trump. Can we say this is the hippy's legacy seeing that Trump was elected on the back of the votes of 60 and 70 year-olds, who were in their teens and 20's in 1967.

At least those of us coming of age in the 70's didn't need any phony excuses to get ripped, fuck furiously and just generally have a helluva party like '67 was. Yeah, I know, but you peeps were busy saving the world with your "revolution" also. Right? Volunteers of America? I think of the Summer of Love and all that comes to mind is "The Wave Speech" in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas...

As someone so eloquently once put it, piss on the fake revolution...
