M&M introduces the World’s First ANTI-MEME

Never before seen on this planet: the concept of the Anti-Meme. 

If a meme is a unit of knowledge, then an anti-meme is an unit of ignorance – perhaps a substitute for knowledge, perhaps an agent of active ignorance.  This is going to be fun!

Here it is for your delectation and delight!

The World’s First Anti-Meme . . .

How did a pathological behavior –
previously associated exclusively with doomed marriages –
become the paradigm for American Politics and American Political Reportage ?

How does putative indictment from a list of offenses to political correctness replace:
v  facts,
v  issues and
v  balanced judgment

My usual digression to the DSM . . .paranoid transference.  301.0 Paranoid Personality Disorder   301.7 Antisocial Personality Disorder; treatment for this disorder is very rarely sought.

ABC News provides a particularly pathetic example of GOTCHA with this soul-stirring headline:
 What can one say about such a thing, except, “Oh, my! Get a life."
