Another goal was to promote peace among the country, especially through the use of music. This movement was during the violent era of Vietnam, hippies opposed this war greatly and strove to expose its injustice.Lastly those who supported the hippy movement were also against the government. The hippie movement wanted to promote government distrust, because of all of the lies that had been told during the Vietnam war.
