Pondering: Does it make sense to speak of being "from a counter-culture"? If you're from it, isn't it just your culture? A counter-culture seems somewhat like a pidgin; once it's been around long enough that children have been born into and grown up with it, it becomes a real, organic thing in itself.

Ah, but it's hip and cool and rad to be from a counter-culture! Whatever a counter-culture actually is. If a group of people act in the same way then even if it is new and different from the norm it is still a culture. The only way to be counter- would be to be a sort of iconoclast, and that doesn't count as a culture.
