The Third Hippie Movement (2178-) is an on-going movement often associated with the current Youth, but it's participants cover the age range of Teens to people in their 130s. Unlike the Second Hippie Movement (2098-2113) the current Hippie Movement is estimated to have a long term effect on society, Mainly due to the complexity of Social Stigmas such as Pure Humanism that either did not exist or existed to a lesser extant in the 2100s.
The Third Hippie Movement is often credited with Ending Bloodsport, the Planet's Rights movement, the near-disbanding of the Prision system and the Pure-Human Movement.
Politics and Media
Regions such as Europe, Cascadia, South East Asia and Siberia have large Hippie Movements and Hippies tend to be involved in everyday Political Life. The current Hippie Movement is very Political and Hippies often voice their beliefs on Media such as TV, Radio, Virtual Reality and Social Media.
Recent scandals around Hippies have been the result of the H-Dip (Hippie Diplomacy) where Hippies in a local, regional or national level will band together and buy off oppositional methods of news delivery. For example, North American News Network, which broadcasted 24/7 via radio, TV, Advertising, News, Entertainment ect was bought for over 2 billion Universal Galactic Credits after the International Hippie Community each pitched in $12-$300 of their local currancy. This shocked many people worldwide as NANN was the Earths second largest Broadcaster and was avalible in over 4 planets. This gave hippies much strenght with the Youth as it was considered the most tuned-in Entertainment and News Network by 15-30 year olds.
So far places with very active hippie movements such as South Asia and Europe have seen bans on Bloodsport, an end to Apartheid regimes discriminating against pure humans, a decline in trans-humanism aswell as a spike in Drug consumtion and a greater acceptance of Robosexuality in Europe, which lead to it's legality.
