Hippie movements started on college campuses and spread worldwide during the late 1960s and into the 1970s. Certain lifestyle traits and values still inspire young people today. The movement was anti-war and pro-peace. In fact, "Peace, love, and rock and roll" became a counterculture call for unification. Hippies rejected most of mainstream society and the closedmindedness associated with the echo chambers status quos lock themselves into.

The hippie movement left its rebellious mark on history and culture in many ways. Hippie clothes inspired the fashion industry to embrace alternative-looking clothes for middle-class young people. Today, some of those looks and the music of the time are still popular.
