"It is clear that many hippie leaders became in the 1980s perfect yuppies, including the great leader Jerry Rubin, turned Reagan activist and neo-liberal convinced Republican. In France, Michel Clouscard was the main thinker to have predicted this transformation, seeing in the hippie movement a simple internal crisis of American capitalism, which far from being threatened was to emerge only stronger from these events. He crystallized this idea in his concept of "liberal-libertarian"." --Sholem Stein
