Referring to the TV documentary Dirty Bloody Hippies:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBbHkFJr_eo

I've visited a few 'intentional communities' and met some of the people featured here. One of my observations is the few 'hippie' communities still around have become quite cliquey and have largely lost their edge. I would be surprised if any of them outlast the generation of the founders.

Could this culture have a comeback? Is there enough people motivated towards this or is it limited to bourgious so-called 'eco-communities' (which are really glorified and overpriced subdivisions)

Watching the start of it brought back memories ... never went to Numbassa but went to Sweetwaters at Ngaruawahia and having a good time.
