Video: Thought germs

Tries to explain memes for people too dumb to know the word. Also assumes emotions are a weakness in the brain (they are not, unless you’re applying them as a cogent form of argument, which isn’t a weakness of emotion but a logical fallacy in context).

Nothing about factual evidence because this should be obvious. Nothing about how anger is a primal trigger (an instinct triggered beyond the brain, not truly an emotion) for good evolutionary reasons. It sounds neutral, except it isn’t. Let’s apply it to something worth talking about: science. At some point, one group wins. Forever. The process of angered debate is fertile, instead of futile. They vye for power. That is not a symbiosis. This video confuses ideological familiarity with merit as a position of (factual) argument. No one debates their opinion because it’s self-evident.

Mental hygiene is an old Christian and feminist idea (avoiding thoughts of sin) and purifying the body. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mental_health#History
