Je ne reconnais mes propres valeurs

Is 'pas' missing because this is spoken French? Or is this a case where it isn't needed?

Bonjour Danielle,

In this sentence you cannot have "pas" as the negation is "ne ... aucun":

Je ne reconnais mes propres valeurs dans aucun de leurs programmes = I don't recognise my own values in any (not one) of their programs 

You could have "ne ... pas" if the sentence had been (but the menaing is different then):

Je ne reconnais pas mes propres valeurs dans leurs programmes = I don't recognise my own values in their programs

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
