Principia Discussion / What ever happened to the counter-culture?

Members of the jury

As a new poster, I have to start with a simple question: what ever happened to the global counter culture?

I've just finished reading The Prankster and the Conspiracy, where Kerry Thornley is described as the inspiration behind the 'counter culture'

It is with great regret that I was not alive in the late 60's to experience the energy and spirit that existed in those days

Yet to me, the vibes that fuelled such thought is needed today more than ever. Having had to force a career in and around the corporate world for the last 15 years, I've been exposed to a world lacking in character, humour, in fact even basic humanity. A world of conformity, ass kissing, and a shameful (read slavish) pursuit of profit - even at the harm of 'progression'

I know that communities of thought exist around the world dedicated to a different phase of thought (though I have generally been unlucky enough to find one), and have dabbled with the left and socialist parties.

All seem to be devoid of a practical spark. All seen, ultimately, resigned to their fate.

Of course technology is both a saviour and a curse. On the one hand, it's a wonderful medium for meeting like minded individuals. On the other, the most complete tool for monitoring undesirables.

So, with the forces of order seemingly triumphant, I humbly ask once again - what ever happened to the counter culture?

Does it exist, and where can one sign up

Yours in frilly underpants
