- deferred gratification
- planned future action - career, home etc.
- comfort in routine
- work ethic
- family as moral centre
These are the kind of values that the mainstream society lived by whilst subcultures like 'The Beats' formed their own. The Beat values were then adopted by other subcultures like Punks.
- short term hedonism
- spontaneous action
- non-conformity and anti-convention
- belief in autonomy - free will
- seeking new experience
- distain for work
- liberal view of relationships.
Some of these beliefs lose all meaning though once a subculture becomes normal and accepted in society. The more popular they became, the less these ideologies meant.
