Hipsters vs Pirates. Is there a difference?

Hipsters were born from the counter-culture. In the past decade the hipster movement has grown and has gradually moved from periphery into the mainstream of society. When punk became plastic and the hip hop lost their momentum for social change, the remaining counter-cultures merged together into a single, continuously mutating trans-atlantic melting pot of styles, tastes and habits, which can be described as a hipster movement, explains Douglas Haddow.

About Anouk Neeteson

Hi, I'm an active pirate since early 2012. I left politics in 1983 and the union 10 years later because I realised it was all a scam. I'm of the No future Generation. I call multi-versatile philosopher with experience as a docker, soldier, certified welder, qualified optician and coffeeshop-manager in Amsterdam, pre-retired now. I am an idealist at heart and a pragmatist in daily reality. I am active in the French Parti Pirate where I live now, and I am also active in the Dutch Piratenpartij (where I was born).
