Quotesociety as it now exists is a living being, and it needs supportive vectors to exist: human beings. these humans allow the society and its social norms to exist because they are afraid of anarchy... a meme which is seen as destructive and deadly for many. the problem is, many people assume these norms only under protest, because they know that is the so-called "least common denominator".... in order to make themselves understood - but still retain partially extensive egoverses which are still "free"... there are two types of corruptive people: those who are (more-or-less) free of the social norm... the so-called insane, loonies, ect... they are not that harmful, because people react to it and set up their barriers. the other kind, however, misuses, or abuses the social norms or communication to break down the walls from the other side... by bysliding the barriers which exist like viruses.

QuoteA lot of people mistake momentary attention for high memetic fitness - I like to call this the Warholian Fallacy. Our new Forge member seems to be falling into this trap as well. If you'd like to generate something with high memetic fitness, then I suggest taking a few generations and a few cultures as your basis of data collection, not a few moments of bandwidth space
