The Cynics were… hippies?

…a radical, countercultural group known for frugality, inattention to clothing and bodily care and comforts, brash speech, begging, and other offensive public behaviors (e.g., public sex). By wandering about and using an often confrontational style of teaching, they attempted to instruct the masses in the pursuit of freedom.

Michael Gorman, Apostle of the Crucified Lord, p.31
