Yes, the question can be asked if memetics as such and in itself
adds something/ nothing to the transmission of cultural traits_ if thus
memetics shouldn 't be treated as just another form of propagation
for trendsetting memes of behavior/ traits and habits.
If thus, now people know, have heard of " memes " , that they
don 't begin to talk about their specific cultural/ social traits and
habits and in that respect transmit their context ( within a meme-
tical frame set out by ' memetics ' itself and memes themselves).

Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
