Hey, become post-moral, too. There's no such thing as good or bad, only
things that you and you tribe like/agree with or dislike/disagree with.

I reckon thinking that Formal Logic is a memetically-transmitted skill
(therefore a meme-complex), and that rationality is a bit of a myth, helps
explain a lot about how people argue, interact, and how scientists and
philosophers actually debate things and work things out.
