The counterculture of the 1960's proved to be a groundbreaking and revolutionary breakthrough in modern society. The rapidly-spreading alternate lifestyle among the youth of the nation was both extraordinary and frightening to the contrasting conservative society of the 1950's. The shift in culture that was sweeping the nation like wild-fire established a rebellious air but this sense of revolt was contrasted with the attitude and essentially peaceful nature of the hippie. Using non-violent protests allowed the peace-seeking youth to accomplish several civil rights goals and express their anti-Vietnam War beleifs effectively. The hippie culture took root and grew rapidly as it gathered popularity and more young college students throughout the nation became attracted to the lifestyle. The counterculture of the 1960's brought about a large change in society and shook the philosophies of life in America for generations.
