    Please provide context to facilitate learning.

It is a neologism attributed to Theodore Roszak
    Although distinct countercultural undercurrents exist in many societies, here the term "counterculture" refers to a more significant, visible phenomenon that reaches critical mass and persists for a period of time. A countercultural movement expresses the ethos, aspirations, and dreams of a specific population during an era........"

    This can be an "open" topic for discussion. According to the explanation given by wikipedia, I think that counter - culture is a subcategory of the established culture.
