Well maybe. This could be a chicken and egg argument. Do you think that
the producers and script writers deliberately sat down and decided to try
to influence the rest of the world? Or did the biases and beliefs (memes)
held by those people just flow through into the movie?
For me Bruce, the memetic codification of culture enables perceptions of
appropriacy within that culture. It is therefore not so much a situation of
writers and producers plotting to dominate the world of thought as them
doing what they do 'normally'.
Though, that said, it is common knowledge that Washington called in the top
producers and 'informed them' of how '9 11' was to be portrayed in movies.
That is the 'engineering' part of memetic codification.
Sorry all, that will have to suffice from me for now as I'm too busy to
play right now (stop smiling Joe)
