Old hippies remind me about an old democrat/republican joke I once heard.
“If you’re young and republican, you don’t have a heart. If you’re old and democrat, you don’t have a brain.”
Of course, I think this was probably referring to fiscal debates 20 – 30 years ago.
Politics today is another world that I can not even begin to wrap my head around.
The only advice I have to hippies is to ditch communism for libertarianism.
One day Norris asks how old I am. I tell him I am thirty-two. It takes a few minutes, but Norris rises to it. “Don’t worry,” he says at last. “There’s old hippies too.”
