For Those Who Missed The '70s - Eye-Opening Photos Of America's Hippie Communes

Throughout the late 1960s and 1970s, a deep-seated social discontent developed among young people in the United States. These were men who’d been forced to fight a war they didn’t believe in only to return home to a country that didn’t want them. The country was filled with college graduates lacking any job prospects, young women who refused to lead their mothers’ lives, and the myth of an “equal” society that couldn’t seem to shake its nasty history of segregation and inequality.


The product of this dissatisfaction was hippie culture, and from hippie culture sprang hippie communes–group living spaces, communities, or villages where like-minded individuals could live simply like their agrarian ancestors (usually with the help of some mind-altering substances). And, most notably, hippies placed communal needs and values above individual rights.


As University of Kansas professor Timothy Miller said, “reason had run its course; now it was time to return to the mystical and intuitional…the hippies rejected the industrial for the agrarian, the plastic for the natural, the synthetic for the organic.”


Each hippie commune was different: some were deeply religious communities while others were completely secular. Drug use was rampant in some hippie communes and forbidden on others. Some were strictly self-sufficient agrarian societies, but other hippie communes participated in capitalism–owning businesses and selling rock albums. There was no “one-size fits all” model, and each hippie commune developed its own culture, rules, and personality over time.


By the 1980s, the original fascination surrounding hippie communes had largely faded, and they began dropping off the map. While a few continue to limp along today, all that remains from a majority is photographic evidence of the time in American history when hippie communes thriving.

One of the most interesting (and strangest) communes to come out of the 70s was the Source Family.


The Source Family was the brainchild WWII vet turned martial arts expert turned Hollywood restauranteur turned spiritual leader, Ed Baker, or Father Yod, as he preferred to be called.


The Source Family did not practice intentional poverty like members of the Farm. They were “entrepreneurial hippies,” and they opened the first vegetarian restaurant in Los Angeles.


The Source Family became well known for their unusual living arrangements, curious antics, and long flowing hair. They became media darlings of the day.


Father Yod died in a freak hang-gliding accident in 1977 in Hawaii. The Source Family fell apart soon after his death.


The Source Family Band practiced every morning at 3AM. Together they recorded more than 60 limited-pressing records of psychedelic rock chants and prayers

Father Yod was not a young man, and he had 13 youthful, beautiful wives. His pervy behaviour drew some serious criticism.

The commune was founded by 13 hippies who, tired of the Vietnam war and constant police brutality of the mainland, fled to this island paradise.

The commune got off to a rocky start when all members and their children were arrested for vagrancy.


They built their beachfront tree houses out of anything they could find: bamboo, scrap lumber, and salvaged materials.


Taylor Camp was a tropical ocean-front utopia in Hawaii without rules, politics, or bills to pay.

  1. Since deep 70th we have changed a lot in our planet and I think it is too much to correct and fix to become a community like hippies were. But we still can maintain more or less healthy life with eating healthy food. According to the article on http://motivationgrid.com/healthy-foods-that-boost-productivity/ we must eat natural fresh foods to boost our productivity and make next generation more healthy then we are.

    1. Hi My name is "Goyal Abhishek" I was married for 9years with Keshika and we had a kid together. Things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time... it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce... I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me. She moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce... I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when my friend introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who has helped him and his wife solve their infertility problem... I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice... He did special prayers for me... Within 2 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, she moved back to the house and we continue to live happily. what a wonderful miracle Dr. Ken did for me and my family. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news... I strongly believe someone out there need's his help ([email protected] or [email protected])so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it's truly worth it. call him +2348074433380 or Add him up on Whats-App.

    Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email [email protected] and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on [email protected] because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you.

  13. THE TRUE SOLUTION TO MARRIAGE , CHEATING , DIVORCE , AND RELATIONSHIP ISSUES
    I will try to make this short as possible. In July I found out that my husband of almost 17 yrs was having an affair and he actually brought this woman to my home. I was devastated to say the least. I met my husband 18 yrs ago and he swept me off my feet and we got married 11 months after we met. We had a great marriage (I thought) we have two beautiful boys. In 2015 we moved 800 miles away to a very small town due to his job. I quit my high paying job at a company that I had worked at for 14 yrs to move away from my family and job/career to be a stay at home mom. Then here we are 2 and 1/2 years later going through a divorce and no job. I felt schizophrenic going through all of these emotions from acceptance, to denial, to how can this be and back again. I tried all the best effort i could to get him back from this woman whom he was having an affair with, and make him see how much i love to be with him. but he insisted he never wanted to be with me anymore. Its was almost 4 months since he started living with this other woman, then i decided to use Dr lucky spells for help because i had no other choice and i felt everything was lost to me. I had the most wonderful and happy marriage after using his spell in just 24 hours, and that was how my marital life was fixed back to its right track. If you are one of the people who is in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged (and you can only determine that by being very honest with yourself), believe me…there IS light at the end of this tunnel.
