LIONEL PODCAST: Watch The Norway Massacre Meme – It’s Not Some Not But A Right-Wing Nut

This is what the story’s about. This is what the story’s become. The meme. A meme is an idea, behavior, style or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture or group. More specifically, it’s defined a cultural item that is transmitted by repetition in a manner analogous to the biological transmission of genes and was coined in 1976 by evolutionary biologist and atheist Richard Dawkins in “The Selfish Gene.”

The meme here is that the Norway disaster was committed by a nut, a right-wing nut. That this murderer was ideology-motivated and politics-inspired. This labeling is most dangerous because the meme will be conflated and attributed to any and all positions or policy masters in opposition to the reigning powers. And it’s started already. Just watch. Beware of labels and watch carefully and with great trepidation who gets to label first.
