So, the ability for memes to be forced is not an agreed upon thing, and even if they can be forced, it’s still an incredibly complicated process. However, killing a potential meme is done unwittingly all the time. A not-yet-established potential meme can be ruined by “forcing.” Could we leverage the fragility of memes in their larval state to neutralize objectionable potential ? Could this backfire via Streisand effect? Or take the fledgling Meme and give it distasteful text. Text it up really good.
There is a way I think we can neutralize harmful thoughtforms
– Draw them poorly and make them stupid and unfunny, though this could backfire as stupid and unfunny seems to be no barrier to memeception.
– We create a meme hunter, a memetic hassling squad, that goes after false memes.
You ignore them. Tumblr and reddit tried forcing memes for half a decade and they’ve gone nowhere. Example are those stupid black and white traces of faces with some stupid phrase on them. They were cancer and they died at their infancy.
