Intr-o declaratie recenta, cantareata Joni Mitchell era dezamagita ca generatia hippie, cea care isi propusese sa schimbe lumea si sa aduca pace in lume, a dat gres, fiind cuprinsa de lacomie materiala.
„My generation was ready to change the world but when the baton was passed on in the seventies (the hippie movement) fell into a mass depression. We degenerated into the greediest generation – the hippie, yippie, yuppie transition from the sixties to the seventies to the greedy eighties. My generation dropped the baton and spawned this lackluster generation.”
