"...Counterculture doesn't require heros and in many cases it subverts the very notion of heroism. Some of the 'Spiritual' countercultures particularly -- Taoism, Zen -- pretty much try to annihilate the romantic self. You may well ask why they fit the premise of assigning primacy of the individual while denying the solidity of the individual ego. Briefly and painting in broad strokes and particularly in the case of the Taoists, there's an individuality of disconnection from social assumptions and norms, and in the case of the Taoist hermits, from civilization itself. It's not an Assertion of non-conformity but an assumption of it."
