Along with the New Left and the Civil Rights Movement , the hippie movement was one of three dissenting groups of the 1960s counterculture.  Hippies rejected established institutions, criticized middle class values, opposed nuclear weapons and the Vietnam War , embraced aspects of Eastern philosophy ,  championed sexual liberation , were often vegetarian and eco-friendly , promoted the use of psychedelic drugs which they believed expanded one's consciousness, and created intentional communities or communes. They used alternative arts, street theatre , folk music , and psychedelic rock as a part of their lifestyle and as a way of expressing their feelings, their protests and their vision of the world and life. Hippies opposed political and social orthodoxy, choosing a gentle and nondoctrinaire ideology that favored peace, love and personal freedom,   expressed for example in The Beatles ' song " All You Need is Love ".  Hippies perceived the dominant culture as a corrupt, monolithic entity that exercised undue power over their lives, calling this culture " The Establishment ", " Big Brother ", or " The Man ".    Noting that they were "seekers of meaning and value", scholars like Timothy Miller have described hippies as a new religious movement .
