    Yes, but only for the few; its not widely available in current education
    systems. (Least here in the USA) In general, philosophy seems to be
    dying, but that may be just my perspective.

    What 'meme' do we use to spread the concept of 'meme' to the public so
    that the public realizes this reality of thought and desires education
    on the topic, rather than force education onto them? And how does one
    (if one can) prevent the topic from degrading into a 'racist' or
    'anti-idea' direction?

    The short of it is this: "I think I understand memes, but now what?"
