Warning: Two highly infectious memes in current circulation.
Meme #1: This meme is commonly being referred to as "Fear necessitates Violence and Greed"
This meme is highly Auto toxic, exo toxic and is closely associated with "The mlitary is good" cult.
Symptoms include but are not limited to: Extreme Arrogance, Mindless repetition of "facts" that justify violence, Extreme selfishness, Name calling, petty insults, and High Horse syndrome.
Host may become very verbally abusive and may actually resort to physical violence when provoked.
The host may also temporarily abstain from common sense and reason.
This meme is very resistant to differing perspectives and competing memes such as "There are other possible solutions".
This meme uses mindless fear as the hook.
Good ways to build up tolerance include studying buddhist thought, playing with children, Eating magic mushrooms, and petting kittens.
Meme #2: Commonly referred to as "Damn the Man" aka "We will not be serfs"
This meme provides immunity to most forms of meme #1.
Symptoms include but are not limited to Extreme distrust of "authority figures", endless urge to promote peace and harmony in creative and funny ways, unwillingness to trade "liberty" for "security", constant urging of others to "smile" and be civil.
Host will usually show complete lack of seriousness when faced with "intelligent" urges for violence, love for all creatures regardless of thier intentions, psychadelic awareness.
Host is also usually very verbal in trying to propogate this meme.
Good ways to build up immunity include joining the military, thinking for yourself, eating magic mushrooms.
P.S. for those of you who like Infected Mushroom might I also suggest any of the double cds from the Goa Head series.
