Youth Culture – good or bad?

Mods, Rockers, Punk, Emos – every generation of young people since the 1960s have had their own sub-culture with distinct music, language and dress.

Sub-cultures are at their strongest where groups feel unwelcomed by the majority. The immigrant Irish community in the 19th century, the gay community at the end of the 20th, the Arab Christian community in the 21st.

So in a society where young and old rarely meet, talk and understand each other is the strength of ‘youth culture’ actually a sign of creativity to be celebrated or an indication that our young people feel unwelcome in our mainstream adult society?
