The "long-haired culture" will dramatically influence mainstream Americans through the normalization of communal living

"Commune nurseries will be built where each of the adults, male and female, will work with all of the commune children one day a week. The kitchen will be large to accommodate large numbers in meal preparation and cleanup. The dining room, furnished with picnic-type tables and benches, will have few decorations. Ecology and "current youth values" which de-emphasize material goods will mean homes are sparsely furnished. Showers will replace bathtubs to better conserve water. Computer-programmed delivery of goods will decrease dependence on the family car. The "self-sufficient home" will have its own power source, with all waste being recycled into usable food and household objects."
