Paleo Boy, glad you liked the links. I've done a little more research on Ferals/bush hippies types. While it seems anarchist don't like hippies of any color, but alot of BHs are closer to living the neo-primitive lifestyle than most anarcho-primitivists I've met so far online. I managed to get some useful info from two of the editors of Wilderness Way, who happen to be on another forum I frequent.
Most of the back to Earth crowd failed, but many of BHs/Ferals seen today are actually the ones that succeded in their own way. Still have alot more research to do. I already consider BHs differant critters than than the dirty, ganga smokin' street Hippie.
Most conservative folks consider anyone who bucks the status quo and chooses an alteritive lifestyle a hippie, including anacho-primitivists(I'm sure that will make Urban Scout squirm). ;D
