Moral Panic in the Media Caused by Youth Subculture

Youth subculture exists in all civilizations, and it may be seen as either an organization of a new culture or a disorder of current cultures

The Moral Panic cultural industry thrives on deviations from the norm. The norm is to push members of society to seek newer ideals as proposed answers to issues recognized by the culture industry’s interested stakeholders. The cyclic evolution of the cultural sector would be impossible without continual shock inputs to produce moral panics. Moral panics are depicted as widespread reactions led by political interests and the media to alter societal order.

They emphasize the negative consequences of a specific societal disease and promote it as a danger to society’s well-being. Scholars’ descriptions of social culture are a contradiction of two sorts of ideas held by distinct groups. One group sees the middle class as the dominating culture, while the other sees it as a working-class or mass culture (Thornton & Gelder (eds.) 1996).

Furthermore, proponents of one viewpoint deny the existence of the other. Youth subculture exists in all civilizations, and it may be seen as either an organization of a new culture or a disorder of current cultures. Young people all around the globe have the trait of refusing to connect with labor and instead choosing affiliations that identify with leisurely pursuits, typically preferring money and free time. Individuals in their adolescence are less dependent on their parents and, on the other hand, have yet to undertake complete adult duties. As a result, youngsters get a little respite from necessity and may afford to fight visually social aging. On the surface, accepting a young subculture or creating a personal culture appears desirable.

A closer examination exposes an underbelly of popular media and the motivations that drive such media in influencing the adoption of Youth Subculture as mainstream. The youth, as culture consumers, must decide whether to have the fun that the subculture is portrayed to have while also having doubts about the actual benefits of enjoying something simply because everyone else is doing so, without a natural capacity to determine the substantial benefits of cultural engagement.
Culture must be experienced to exist, and before achieving the ideal expression, individuals must endure hardships and contradictions on imperfect manifestations to have a context to connect the pleasant life they have. Given this, it appears that culture cannot be a reflection of mere existing categories, as depicted by the media business. Instead, culture, if it exists, is dynamic, forming its context and classes as much as it is living in others. The use of a cultural description of an ordered collection of actions is inconclusive.
