In lecture today, Professor Putman was talking about counterculture and hippies. He described how they rejected the mainstream and cultural norms for a different type of lifestyle. This included tie dye, drugs, and the concept of love over war. My friend that lives next door to me in the dorms has the most colorful room I’ve ever come across. The only way it can be described is colorful and happy. I realized that she has this small tapestry (pictured below) draped across her bed and it completely embodies the hippie counterculture. “Make Love, Not War” and “All we need is love” were two common phrases of the time.
