Are subcultures still as relevant today as they were before, or are we all just in a cycle adopting pre-existing movements?
Thanks for your submission
I'm sure we are adopting aspects of pre-existing movements, however subcultures are still a driving force behind the new inspiration and ideas.
Pretty much everything you can think of, no matter how original you think it is, already exists or has been done before, it's recycling, doesn't mean it's a bad thing.
Subcultures will always form and feed influence upwards towards mainstream culture. But, now, as news travels faster and attention is fleeting, their lifespan will be much shorter and possibly less impactful.
Without subcultures where will mainstream be influenced from? Subcultures will lay on the outskirts of mainstream as a influence to the larger Zeitgeist of mainstream... To me its more how does a subculture define itself in this hyper connected world.
