Anticonformism is a philosophy which actively rejects conformism. Anticonformists are not merely individualists, but believe that conformity is responsible for many of the world's ills. Anticonformists usually equate the pressure to conform to social norms with a sort of cultural bigotry, and therefore champion a free-spirited individualism that attempts to rid itself of all vestiges of socially-based desires and characteristics.
