    I guess I must have missed something. Has there been any mention of this, or any discussion about it, on any one of these mailing lists? Has anyone here read it?

    Cultural Software: A Theory of Ideology by J.M. Balkan -- Yale University Press, (1998 !?)

    "Cultural Software explains ideology as a result of the cultural evolution of bits of cultural knowhow, or memes. It is the first book to apply theories of cultural evolution to the problem of ideology and justice." Jack M. Balkin

    is Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment, and Director, The Information Society Project at Yale Law School

    One of their projects is LAW MEME !

    I do miss things, sometimes, I guess, but I would have thought this would be in the air, somewhere.
