Plastic Abbreviations

Plastic is collective term for a large group of organic compounds with a high molecular weight , which are all built up of largely liquid or gaseous substances with a low molecular weight, which under certain conditions combine with each other to form long- chain compounds. Although its final shape is solid, these can be shaped into almost any desired shape under the influence of high pressure and temperature and certain operations.


The number of applications is therefore very large (utilities, radio and telephone sets, raincoats, dentures, etc.). Nylon* is also a plastic.

• It must be said that the number of serious, scientifically educated adults who are positive towards the hippies is growing. They sincerely try to recognize the good as well as the bad elements of the youth revolution. They start from the reality that more than five thousand young people from all parts of America have gathered here to live their own existence against all existing norms ; that many feel enough to want to be a “plastic hippie “, a follower, and that thousands are balancing on the edge of that bizarre existence by living life in this new society only during their holidays and during the weekends. ( The time, 23/09/1967)
• In almost all Western countries, groups can be found that broadly follow the behavioral pattern of the hippies, without the actual social content of the hippie philosophy being the basis for this. The relatively small group of real hippies speaks in this context of ‘plastic hippies’. (Winkler Prins Jaarboek 1970)
• It was the Amsterdam councilor Roei van Duyn who introduced the gnome idea to the council in 1969; the gnomesymbolizes in his ideology the man living close to nature, who can freely surrender to his fantasy.

(Winkler Prins Jaarboek 1971)
• Mr Jansen then the plastic contemporary, who allows himself to be lived and is lived, is nowhere, instead of fighting for the freedom to be allowed to live himself, so is somewhere. (Simon Vinkenoog: The fence of the dam. 1971)
• (Riemer Reinsma: Description of new words. 1975)
• About four years ago it was still fun, but do you still have fun things these days? Are you cheated! Even the press conferences aren’t fun anymore. I’m really bored there these days. It’s all become so plastic. (Get It, February 1976)
• As an American you only have to claim that you flout the plastic values ​​and morals of your country,… (Jan Cremer: Logbook. 1978)
• Take disco now. That slippery genre, that superficial plastic music. (Vinyl, October 1986)
• Occupancy was a new phenomenon in the struggle of the rebellious youth against the plastic people, the bastard people, or anyone over twenty-five. (Chris van Esterik: We were boys. 2016)
