    I expect no less. Its as silly as “rock the vote.” Most people miss the point because they are not hip to Social Dilemma’s like the voter’s paradox, nor the means to address them (http://perspicuity.net/common/moral3.html). Most people wouldn’t view voting as gang violence either. I suppose “occupying” most aspects of our lives on ‘main street’, or lining us against/behind the wall, whether we like it or not, is OK with Jesse.

    So, Radgeek. Are you just ignoring me or what?

    I sent you an email and left a comment, and you never replied. I wanted to address the topic of memetics.

    Well, since you never answered, I wrote an entry arguing your position anyway… so maybe I could send it to you and you could give me your rebuttal to it.

      Ah, OK. I don’t know if I missed that, or if I saw it and it just got buried under other things. Sorry about that. When did you send the e-mail? If you want to pass along a link to the post in comments here, I’ll take a look.

    I haven’t posted it yet. I wanted to get your opinion first. I left a comment on your entry on memetics, where you argued that memetics is not like evolution because the former involves the notion of human choice. I don’t believe in choice, at least not in the literal sense.

Anticopyright. This was written in 2012 by Rad Geek. Feel free to reprint if you like it. This machine kills intellectual monopolists.
