Where the Hippies Got Their “Bright” Ideas

As I read through the history books I’m surprised to see things young people during the 1960’s imitated. I was especially surprised when I read about the spirituality, vegetarianism, occultism and nature-worshipping that was in vogue and still is, during the 1930’s, that inspired Hitler. Hitler inspired? Don’t even go there. I suppose I was just as surprised when I read about Joan of Arc and how she may have enjoyed magic mushrooms and she was probably a member of the oak cult, the Druids. According to an article a friend sent me (she knows I love all things oak and acorn) Joan was a Pagan. When she was on trail for witchcraft her inquisitioners asked her about an oak tree and she admitted to hanging mistletoe on it in Druid tradition. But hey… everyone was doing it. Suellen Ocean is the author of Acorns and Eat’em, a how-to vegetarian cookbook and field guide for eating acorns.
