  • Not really, no.

    A meme is an idea, behavior, or style that spreads by means of imitation from person to person within a culture and often carries symbolic meaning representing a particular phenomenon or theme

    The comic strip format could be characterized as a memetic style of communication that has spread by imitation from person to person.

    Such is not true of ferns, for example.

    why are you fighting me

    Because you’re not just reporting on the awful status quo. You’re mis-characterizing it as natural and inevitable rather than a serious of choices, often wrong, that we keep letting people with questionable motives make on everyone’s behalf to the benefit of those who already have too much while others suffer from not having enough.

    Put another way, you’re framing blind obedience to rules that haven’t served the vast majority of people well as not just a good idea but the ONLY possibility.

    You may not set policy, but whether you’re aware of it or not, you’re defending policy that needs attacking.

    all nations have limited resorces artificial scarcity, and need choose to practice resource management deny resources from those that need them most on behalf of those that already have most

    There, fixed it for you.

    This goes for both capitalism and communism.

    Which everyone knows are the two only economic systems possible 🙄

    Anything else would be to deny reality the dominant orthodoxy

    Fixed it for you again. You’re really guzzling that “my masters know best” kool-aid.

    all boil down to if it is worth it to the country.

    The fundamental purpose of governments is to maximize the well-being of the citizens and other inhabitants. When the government’s aims are in conflict with the well-being of the people, the government has failed.

    Automatically rejecting people as worthwhile based on putting them in one column or the other on a spreadsheet is a particularly grievous failure.

    if you are trying to migrate without a job but with an expensive disabillity and little money, then you are just a liabillity to the healthcare system.

    And since the country is under no obligation to pay for the care, there is no reason for them to do so

    It is just basic resource management, you may not like it, but it is reality

    No. Just no. People aren’t numbers on a spreadsheet. That’s some capitalism mind rot.
