Welcome aboard, Eternal Springs. From your description we have a lot in common. I'm an old hippy, peacemonger, and activist myself. I'm from central New York where different tribes of the 1st Nations have called this this land their home since it was wilderness. I'm very glad you're now one of us friend. Incidentaly, one of our old Current.com posters was Joe Eddy from the website blog called Citizen Journalist's Exchange. There are many of our contemporaries who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s there. Feel free to check them out sometime, and see if you like the activist articles they post on their blogsite. You may feel right at home there too. Hasta luego, amigo.
