Brett--If you read my post again, you might find I wasn't talking about the
issue of "redistribution of wealth" as a main focus, since it was in the
context of memetic evolution...(DH)

I still see redistribution of wealth as having very little relevance to
memetics even in the context within which it was brought up. And my
personal assessment is that governmental reform is a particular issue of
yours which will continue to be brought up if someone doesn't help you place
it into perspective...I've heard similar issues brought up by other
"fanatics" referred to as signs that one is "infected with a particular mind
virus". I also like the definition of fanatic that says it refers to
someone who won't change their mind and won't change the topic.
