Kapitalism, communism, stalinism, facism, nazism, neo- liberalism, creatonism, positivism, holism, darwinism, socialism, reductionism, memetics, lamarckism, evolution, thacherism, etc... these concepts all make ( little) sense outside their own scientific, philosophical, political excrescene but are these ( great) ideas_ these mistakes_ right or wrong !?
Was the idea of the Russian revolution in 1917 a great idea that evolved, adopted itself to the context of the changing history of our times !? It ended on 31 12 1991 when the red flag of the Soviet Union was replaced by the tricoloured banner of Russia, that's for sure ! But was it a mistake !? For those who suffered yes ! For those who died under stalin-rule yes ! But was the idea of total and overall equality for everyone a mistake to begin with !? Was the idea of communism a mistake in the first place !? Wko knows ! Perhaps ! But it was a valuable and popular thing. It launched other anti- ideas and contra- politics, it started almost another war and brought fame to Lenin and Trotski. Moreover, still today people process and discuss them and display the pro and cons of those ideas, set of systems and infra- structures evolved out of the properties to protect them! The concept became an political ideology and forms in some parts of the world still the society. So, was the idea a good one or a bad !? Communism is a powerful idea/ meme, it mutates, combines, is communicated and generally accepted as influental. So it shouldn 't be surprising that the information it holds within is still around, is copied, spreads and is robust enough to evolve and to leave behind a point for its own future. Does the ' mistakes ' within the exploration of its possibilities change the idea of communism all together !?
Memetics is another bullet in the dark, a blank ! It didn 't make it to become a science in its own right and a variety of aspects and perspectives of the theory are highly controversial and pushed so far to their limits that they lost meaning, purpose and importance. But some, like me, stick faithfully to the idea and try to ensure its survival. Unfortunally, memetics and the term ' meme' gets thrown around a lot and that without mush thought. It is new/ cool and neat to use whenever but people miss so the point of what memetics stands for entirely. But that is not the move I wanna to discuss.
Does the mistake of bringing the meme to light, change the idea that in nature there is a second and maybe a third replicator at work, binging us down, propagating itself and evolving !? It was surely no mistake. It was an idea and its time was there to pop up in the mind of Richard dawkins who wrote it down in a book. The idea of the meme, the meme- meme was an instant hit and was passed down to scientists like Dennett and Lynch and to female writers like Bkackmore and Gabora. Since then we moved on to the next chapter. We now better grasp ( neo)- darwinian principles since Dawkins in 1976. We understand there is some horizontal gene trasfer, there's general agreement that life started in an ' RNA' - world, we know now that retrogenes exist and that somewhere Lamarck signed up the book of evolution too !!
That memes are not passed on genetically we know best. That however the succeptibility or resistance could be genetically determined is true and also that the subsequent brain environmental changes together with those individuals basics would determine what ( kind of) memes would work and which will not, to the extent to which the subject might/ will respond or not, we know better. So does the mistaking believe in the meme as the unit of cultural evolution, change the idea we have about ourselves !? Yes, it does !!
We know now that man 's brain and body are only there as vehicles, subjectd to take part in the process od descent wherein ideas/ memes modify,select, groove their ways for propagation, modification and survival! We don 't consider anymore the possibility of we having a free will; There are lots of social behaviours that people regard as products of free will and personal choise that are actually constrained and controlled in ways most people are entirely unaware of. We now even suspect that our differences of opinon only are results of memes displaying their properties. Those can succeed or will perish in the mad rush for survival, although it seems arbitrary. Survival will and is pure fashion. Lots of people follow all sorts of trends, customs and etc without knowing why ( what for) or the origins of such customs, but just do so. Memes persist regardless of personal choise. So once again, making mistakes does not the idea we have about freedom, security, morality, society,...anything everywhere goes !! But there is a monster creeping inside ! The one you don 't see is mush more terrifying than the one you do ! Be aware !!
Man does not descent from the apes ! Darwin is a imposter and the theory of evolution rubbish! Hitler was a knee- kneep Darwinist and therefor he started the Holocaust! Such ideas form the basics for what is know as Islamcreatonism. Life is created and is part of religion they say ! All what somewhat resembles to our modern multi- culturalism can easily be defeated by one single question:- Does The Muslim-world Goes For Darwinsm or for the Mad Idea Of Creatonism !? Would you be surprised to hear that Creatonism hits the hot spot !? In any way this gives a whole new meaning to the why the integration of such a large group of immigrants has failed. Failure !?
No, from the beginning on it was impossible ! Islam is not just another religion, not even a religious inspired, political / cultural movement, but a literal all- embracing ideology. Islam can 't and won 't accept Darwinism, not even in its most practical way. It clings onto Creatonism. And the blunders/ the errors within the cliams made by Creatonism then !? Mistakes doesn 't change the idea !
