  • The values and norms of behavior of a cultural group or subculture. A counterculture does not follow the mainstream of society. It is a form of political opposition. A counterculture can reach critical mass and persist for many years. A counterculture movement expresses the ethos, aspirations, and dreams of a specific population during an era. It is a social manifestation of a worldview. A counterculture refers to a group rather than an individual.

    In his book The Making of a Counter Culture (1995), Theodore Roszak questioned how the counterculture could change the established system. Roszak was opposed to a highly sophisticated industrialized society. He did not like the modern aspects of the industrialized world in which people planned, rationalized, and strived for order in their lives.
