Counterculture is an ideology and a movement whose proponents believe that individual meritocracy, where merit is the most important quality for success, is the way forward.
Its proponents believe in meritocracy because they believe in a meritocracy.
And that meritocracy is not something that is inherent to any particular race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
It’s something that’s built into the very fabric of society.
In a nutshell, counterculture means “a form of radical individualism that emphasizes the importance of individual freedom, individual responsibility, and personal responsibility for oneself and others.”
The most basic concept in counterculture is the idea that “no matter how much you know, no matter how many times you’ve seen someone do something bad, you don’t know anything.”
It also means “no one has the right to judge you.”
The Meritocratic ideal counterculture embraces is a view of the world that places emphasis on the importance and value of individual merit, rather than the value and importance of the ideas that make society work.
It also puts a premium on personal responsibility, meaning that the more you work to achieve your goals, the more important it is that you do the right thing for yourself and others.
It has a strong emphasis on individual freedom.
It emphasizes the idea of personal responsibility.
It stresses the importance, and the importance is something that many counterculture enthusiasts have held for decades.
There’s a whole bunch of different counterculture ideas that are being propagated, and there are people who are really pushing this idea of meritocracy that, ironically, is antithetical to the meritocratic ideal that counterculture advocates.
And they’re going to be the ones that we’re going back to, because the idea is really antithetical, and I think we’re in the midst of a real transformation in the way we think about society and how we value work, and it’s going to get even worse if we don’t address this problem head on.
