Are You Doing YOUR Part in The Meme Wars?

The reason for caution is when you try to "know your enemy" with a memenemy, you've put the enemy inside the wire. When it's a BPM, this is a good way for you to learn bad ideas. A con artist might say "It's not stealing if you give it to me." A neocon artist might say "It's not a lie if you believe it."

The meme war's tactic is from medicine: isolate a disease's carrier. Don't approach a suspect meme until you've absorbed enough about its source to grow natural barriers and tripwires.

[ cf Meme Defense Warning ( emphasis mine)
I think that earthlien has an important piece of the puzzle here...

What soooooo many americans are going to have to work through, as we deal with getting back to a sound economic policy, is how many times folks have been willing to believe it, because it was simpler, cooler, looked like a great angle....

I would like to note that while I support Sun Tzu's assertion:
The greatests of all General's wins the war without fielding an army
I am afraid that it only works in a pre-MemeWar battle space.

One has to wonder about the follies of the memenemy that can be traced back to a romantic infatuation with the kinder, simpler, more halcyon days of the Englightenment, back when it was simpler to HOPE that there was not going to become a division between HamiltonianStalinists, and the JeffersonianTrotskyites, and that all was going to be the peace and bliss of reasoning, just as the Divinity of Dubya Demands, per the argument from Divine Comedies...

So we have a bit of work cut out for us now...

And yes, just because a person is a Draft Dodger, doesn't make them a bad person. What makes them an interesting manifestataion of MEAT, is when they presume that they should be excused from the Grinder because their ShineyWhiteHiney has to be protected, for reasons, well, that are merely selfishly grotesquely partisan, and, well, just Selfish.

At that point, they have tacked one more nail in the coffin of "thinking meat".

The big challenge will be if we can put together the construct of actual Ethics.

For some reason, few of my Godless Evil Liberal friends like to talk about life in an actual 'free market', where the guns in the room defined the law in the room... None of that FaggotAsseedNancyGirl crank about having some stack of papers and persons who do nothing but read and write define the scope of when it is time to start 'liquidating damages'.

Hum... the same Freaking FruitBats Fan of the Free Market, are also, uh, off loading onto the government that they so hate, this majikal 'contract law' space, where some set of ethical constructs are suppose to reside, for reasons, that, well, let us be brutally honest, boil down to the fact that those Pansies are afraid to live in a world where the Gun Count takes precedence over law degrees...

So who knows.... We may just have to have folks work out why it is that they want to leave the whole "Court of Exchequer" in the hands of the government, rather than allowing everyone the luxury of living in one more majikal John Woo Moment...
