Rule the Meme - Rule the World

I got a kick out of the Bureau of Memetic Warfare. Reminds me of the hacker manifesto J  Let me take you back:
This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the
beauty of the baud.  We make use of a service already existing without paying
for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and
you call us criminals.  We explore... and you call us criminals.  We seek
after knowledge... and you call us criminals.  We exist without skin color,
without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals.
You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us

and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

One to the idea of Meme as intentional perceptorPalmer Luckey, founder of Occulus Rift funded a political site called Nimble America. Google cache had its original content.

"We’ve proven that shitposting is powerful and meme magic is real." 

BMW stands of Bureau of Memetic Warfare. WARNING 8Chan may not be safe for work (NSFW):

The purpose of this board is to weaponize truth and, thereby, to take the fight to the enemy. We are poor, we are weak, and we are few in number - but this does not matter. There is power in truth.

It is not the gun, or the soldier, or the general, the president, or money that decides the course of events - it is the directing cause. 

The idea that lies at the root of action and gives it purpose

Now as never before we have the ability to reach out, learn, and spread the truth as we know it to be - not as it is presented by the moneyed  few.We are presented with a state of affairs unique to history, an age of ideological memetic warfare in which the controlling principles of mankind are loosed to spread with no physical barriers.

All of the weapons of our enemy lay before us at our disposal, but in this fight we have the advantage - truth, which is anathema to the enemy; this we  have and this only we can use. We need not invent twisted new worlds to fit lies, we need only make what is necessary and evident palatable and polished
With only our wits and the reach of our computers we can and will change the world;
strike down the memes that direct degeneracy and you will strike down degeneracy itself

Fight for Truth, fight for Virtue, fight for Beauty!
