Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I'm saving this here for future discussion.

Punk ideologies are a group of varied social and political beliefs associated with the punk subculture. In its original incarnation, the punk subculture was primarily concerned with concepts such as rebellion, anti-authoritarianism, individualism, free thought and discontent. Punk ideologies are usually expressed through punk rock music, punk literature, spoken word recordings, punk fashion or punk visual art. Some punks have participated in direct action, such as protests, boycotts, squatting, vandalism or violence.

Punk fashion was originally an expression of nonconformity, as well as opposition to mainstream culture and the hippie counterculture. Punk fashion often displays aggression, rebellion and individualism. Some punks wear clothing or have tattoos that express sociopolitical messages. Punk visual art also often includes those types of messages. Many punks wear second hand or custom created clothing, partly as an anti-consumerist statement.

The do it yourself (DIY) ideal is common in the punk scene, especially in terms of music recording and distribution, concert promotion, zines, posters and flyers.

Punk had a unique and complex aesthetic. It was steeped in shock value... The whole look of punk was designed to disturb and disrupt the happy complacency of the wider society.

PUNK
= PEOPLE UNDER NEW KNOWLEDGE 

People who respect people who respect them. The fight for their own rights. They have great pride. They prevent chaos. 

PUNK IS: the personal expression of uniqueness that comes from the experiences of growing up in touch with our human ability to reason and ask questions. 
PUNK IS: a movement that serves to refute social attitudes that have been perpetuated through willful ignorance of human nature. 
PUNK IS: a process of questioning and commitment to understanding that results in self-progress, and through repetition, flowers into social evolution.
PUNK IS: a belief that this world is what we make of it, truth comes from our understanding of the way things are, not from the blind adherence to prescriptions about the way things should be. 
PUNK IS: the constant struggle against fear of social repercussions. 
PUNK: people who fight the freedom and rights of human kind! pro nature!

I saw Punk as a reaction against the mainstream, and a movement encouraging self expression and the belief that you didn't need to rely on someone else or a big corporation to do things for you  - you could do things for yourself.

Hi Roy,

Nice to meet you.  I like what you had to say- very much the tenets of the resilience movements that are out there.
