Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on November 23, 2021, 04:06:26 PMI think the real answer is sadly cottage core/trad shit. The people smugging over the decline of underground movements or subcultures in the 00s and wanting all pop culture, all the time, really got a monkey's paw outcome on this one.

Quote from: Paul Calf Jr. on November 23, 2021, 09:23:18 PMIf you're looking for a counter-culture, you're almost certainly failing to see the wood for the trees. The main prevailing counter-culture is profoundly reactionary, deeply conservative and radically regressive: pjw, Proud Boys, Brexit, Farage, anti-mask and anti-vaxx and yes, cottage-core/trad. The recessive counter-culture is identity-based too, but liberal and possibly socialist. They don't really stand a chance.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on November 23, 2021, 07:49:59 PMI think it's difficult to achieve what we'd traditionally define as a "counterculture" when there isn't really a mainstream to bounce off. It also depends how you define "mainstream", of course, but corporations and huge media outlets have been parroting ideas that used to be unheard outside of fringe internet discourse, but somehow people still feel as though they're "outside of the mainstream". One side will say the corporations and media are too right-wing, the other too left.
Quote from: Goldentony on November 23, 2021, 09:33:52 PMthis conservatism sounds like the same old cousin fuckers, racists and nonce cunts there's always been rather than the new anything, maybe im wrong but it has all the hallmarks of nonce cunts, fuckers of cousins/dogs/cars and racists
