    We are living in a decade that is eerily similar to the 60s. Everyone is nostalgic for the 50s, 80s & 90s. In the 60s people were just nostalgic for the 50s, maybe 20s too.

    Instead of "haight ashbury" we had "occupy" in New York, Oakland and just about every state in America, as well as other countries. So it's an international phenomenon instead of just one street corner. The 60s started at the corner of haight and ashbury in cali.

    Instead of acid, marijuana and cocaine slowly becoming nationally illegal drugs, we are slowly working towards finding the correct applications for such things.

    Instead of a "mad men" stock rush, there is a bitcoin stock rush.

    We have hipsters instead of hippies.

    Our guns are being restricted (same as the 60s) we will probably be getting our right to bear arms back though, instead of losing it like we did in the 60s.

    I think it is going to straight up repeat itself, except the hipster movement will be 10x as big, and 100x as meaningless as the hippy movement.

    Ex: Skrillex VS The Beatles

    Unless they bring back the draft I don't think any new counterculture movement will be comparable in size to the 60s.

    Who is nostalgic for the 80's and 90's?

    Wrong, Because:
    1: College is making Hipsters.
    2: Occupy was the BEGINNING, just like Haight Ashbury. And just using that as an indicator, this will be massive.
    3: Social Networking. Nuff said.

    Psssh! They sent me an enrollment in the draft a few months before I was 18. I've been tempted to burn it, but didn't. I'm sure as hell not fighting for the government though, even if they demanded me to. I don't take kindly to authority.

    I think you are way off base with all of this.
    Also, the concept of "hipster" isn't as new as you think.

    The occupy movement has sputtered. It was a flash in the pan.

    No we aren't.

    This time we have MANY more things. Look up one or more of these things, all legal, all amazing.

    25I-NBOME
    25C-NBOME
    25B-NBOME
    Benzo Furan
    Bromo-Dragonfly
    4-ACO-DMT
    And MANY MANY more

    Just because I'm talking about it in the present, doesn't mean I think it's new.

    It's just "The New Hippy", which is a general statement that covers 50 years.

    That's like saying Haight Ashbury was a failure. DEFINTELY true, but it wasn't the end.

    I don't take any Research Chemicals. i've seen people clime through glass on that crap. LSD>RC

    So you don't take LSD or MDMA? Those are research chems, they just have had more research done on them than most. And tons of people actually like 25I-NBOME over acid.

    And there is no drug that makes you climb through glass. That's a personal retarded decision.

    Wishful thinking. This is a completely different decade, we can compare and speculate but when we do I don't see a second 60's coming in any way. I'm not pessimistic overall because of that, I see many positive things happening and I think all the 'ingredients' that made the 60's great have never been absent (perhaps in some places but the 60's itself weren't different in that of course). And what have hipsters to do with another 60's? Even the green movement seems better comparable to a hippie movement than what those hipsters seem to be about.

    It's not wishful thinking, it's the truth. LSD and MDMA are research chemicals.

    4-Aco-DMT turns into psilocin in your stomach. Do you like mushrooms?

    I took 2c-I when it was legal, and it was like 3/4ths as good as acid, so I'm sure 25I-NBOME (which is stronger in general, and more potent by weight) is comparable acid.

    And you can't even really have an opinion, you say you will never take any of these, and I assume you haven't. So how can you have any further judgment than that?

    You misunderstood me, I was talking about the original post of this thread. Not the one above mine ;) :2thumbsup:

    Where did you read that? Not that I can have an opinion either way, but just wondering?

    Damn, maybe someone else said that. I smoke while I'm on the computer and I always assume I'm talking to the same person, unless something like this happens. Then I start recognizing people, and learning who people are.

    I'm never on Hipforums much, so I'm still kinda new here.

    No problem! Thanks for clarifying anyway :) It even sounds recognizable except I just skip posting when I'm on here stoned :D

    No problem, we've got DMT.

    If there is a counterculture, this time it will be global.
