Louisiana’s school voucher program is already on the ropes, but the folks who run it are still trying to educate the youngsters about history besides Jesus riding a dinosaur and there be dragons off the edge of the Earth. Here’s their entry that explains those odd people known as “hippies.”
Many young people turned to drugs and immoral lifestyles’ these youths became known as hippies. They went without bathing, wore dirty, ragged, unconventional clothing, and deliberately broke all codes of politeness or manners. Rock music played an important part in the hippie movement and had great influence over the hippies. Many of the rock musicians they followed belonged to Eastern religious cults or practiced Satan worship.
And then they grew up, got jobs, started families and companies, and a lot of them voted for Reagan and Bush.
But the music was pretty damn good.
