What I meant by that was that on some fundamental level it is intellectual navel gazing to try and find deeper meaning in poltards' buzzword of the month. The fact these memes have been stripped of all contextual meaning should tell you something, and it is why I find ultimately little of value in a person attempting to discuss thirdhand a meme that is being used secondhand bereft of its original meaning. The ultimate product to me of such a discussion is, at best, a very intelligent person often using it as a cudgel or way to shoehorn in what they really want to talk about, which is a grander version of abuse and twisting of meaning of the original meme by certain malefactors. It is reminiscent to me of some adults trying to discuss the meaning of children's internet slang, followed by somebody else trying to write some mini-dissertation on it, all the while not even having a real grasp of the core subject.
It is not a bad article, just somewhat divorced from reality to me.>>16339
The concept of slogans, thought terminating cliches, and various other thoughtless reflexive responses are not new. It is mainly an expression of rampant anti-intellectualism.
