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

One Response to The Cynics were… hippies?

  1. Theophrastus says:

    For a good time, read about Diogenes — for example here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Diogenes_of_Sinope&oldid=490844002

    Live in a tub in a marketplace, eat onions, pee on your critics, spit in the faces of your hosts, etc.
