Usually refers to the cultural environment that DOMINATES where one lives. However, one is still a part of society regardless of their stance towards the dominant values of that society. Society includes everybody from CEOs to antiglobalization protester to drug addicts. Whose values dominate tends to depend on which social subgroup has the most POWER.
If you don't like the values that dominate your society, all you can do is stand up, speak out and live the values that you cherish most. My opinion is that it helps little to criticize a society without presenting viable alternative values.
Jane Investor thinks Joe Junkie is a blight on society because he lives in violation of her values. Society will grow by listening to Joe Junkie's inability or unwillingness to fit in more than it will from condemning him.

A fucked up place where everyone is held to impossible standards. A place where you will be judged on everything you do, say, and how you look. Your feelings will be ignored and your true personality will be judged on fake standards that no person can be. A place that is publicized by people who don't hold the standards. A place where no one wants to be, but is forced into life there
Girl 1: see that girl over there, Megan, she's no skinny enough
Girl 2: her clothes are trash
Girl 3: she so does not fit in to our society
Girl 1: to many flaws
Girl 4: I don't look perfect in the eyes of society, neither do you. So stop being such a bitch about it

Homosexual , JUST LIKE THE GOVERNMENT!
Society and the government are BOTH homosexual and Satanic!

You people make me sick the way you aid the government in destroying yourselves by accepting their pc jargon and bullshit idealism.
