    Very interesting.

    I like this-

    "cultural characteristics and differences are less mutable and hence less
    easily compromised and resolved than political and economic ones"

    - which points to memes being, perhaps, not quite so maleable as we might
    think. You might get a muslim to buy Adidas, but, not to bow to the
    north. And don't try to take away my hot chocolate....
