counterculture (OED 1970)

1947 George H. Dession in _Vanderbilt Law Review_ 1:9 (HeinOnline)  The control problems posed in these areas differ from those posed by the ordinary common crimes in that the behavior one seeks to discourage is likely to be of very frequent occurrence, being representative of the culture, of the counter-culture, or mixed, rather than alien to the culture.
