I'm commenting this, as a medically retired NCO from the Australian Army (about 37 years ago, 1979-81). Then I moved into male-sex-role investigations & reformation research.
Most (all?) biological creatures to date on this planet are locked into bio-chemical prisons. Memes (data, information, without biochemical existence) are now existing as new Homo Sapiens "toys".
What the emerging "critics" comment here, are the toy uses of these toys. The military-industrial complex uses memes to determine which materialistic resources should be used to diminish/ destroy "threats". Legal & economic toy-players use these meme-toys (alphanumerics, graphs, charts, music, etc) to try to control-influence the military boys.
You youngsters are very aware how this computer stuff you "play" with (Internet, computer programming languages,etc) was actually the creation of the military industrial complex. You are very unaware how the big-boys (military, muli-national corporations, governments) are really using your "toys" to manipulate the lay population: food, drinks, drugs, fashions, movies, music, interests, hobbies, etc. "Masters of Business Administration" have no ethics. They just rip off the uninformed, powerless idiots, secretly & silently. Hopefully you might wake up to the legacies that we "baby boomers" have left for you all.
