what is counter-culture? counter-culture is a think tank and aggregate effort to promote dissenting and/or deviating thought. it is a medium to examine varying perspectives and issues within culture, art, aesthetics, history, philosophy, politics, economics, psychology, and environment. this is an interminable struggle against the forces of ignorance, disillusionment, exploitation, misrepresentation, and propaganda. take whatever parcels knowledge, wisdom, and compassion you can derive, and go forth sharing it with all others; to oblivion, and beyond.

Cultural Hegemony

Cultural hegemony is the philosophic and sociological concept, originated by the Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci, that a culturally-diverse society can be ruled or dominated by one of its social classes. It is the dominance of one social group over another, e.g. the ruling class over all other classes. The theory claims that the ideas of the ruling class come to be seen as the norm; they are seen as universal ideologies, perceived to benefit everyone whilst really benefiting only the ruling class.
