So fortunately they gave me something to rebel against and I become a hippy.
And I discovered there were three kinds of hippy - political hippies, drug hippies and mystical hippies. The political hippies destroyed themselves with violence. And the drug hippies destroyed themselves with drugs. And of course I was a mystical hippy.
And even as our military are taking women into combat roles, I notice they are not taking hippies - mystical or not.
