Default Summer Of Love {RP} - 08-04-2013, 06:14 PM

The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people met up in San Francisco. The result of this was a major cultural and political shift. Altho large groups of "flower children" also gathered in major cities across American, Canada and Europe, San Francisco remained the epicentre of the social earthquake that would come to be known as the Hippie Revolution. The hippies brought in several elements to the city; including politics, music, drugs and creativity. They also practiced freedom in all shapes and forms, including a lack of social and sexual inhibitions. Alternative lifestyles such as gender equality, living in communes and kibbutzes and free love were rampant, and the hippies genuinely believed in what they were preaching.

The hippies, sometimes called flower people, were an eclectic group. Many were suspicious of the government, rejected consumerist values, and generally opposed the Vietnam War. Others were uninterested in political affairs and preferred to spend their time involved in the aforementioned sex, drugs, and music. There was something else in the air... talk of aliens! Hippies were excited by the thought that they could be visited by aliens, and indignant to think that the government might be covering up aliens. Conspiracy theories abounded as a result.

This is you, in this melting pot, in the main hippy pad where the hippies live in their vans and where the demonstrations, love-ins and gatherings happen. Are you one of the flower children, living in and spreading peace and your own message everywhere? Or are you simply a friend, dragged along to the meeting against your will. Maybe you even have a hidden agenda; a reporter, a police snitch, or something so secret that no-one else knows!
