    The use of a meme depends on the context in which it is embedded.
    (Memeplex?) For instance a meme of intolerance may result in one
    group isolating itself from society at large (the amish) or jihad. I
    am not a geneticist, but I assume that there is some sort of genetic
    analog here.

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
