The Meme War by Chris Knight

Here in Australia critical writing among conservatives is not big on satire and a sense of the absurd; in a word, the use of memes, imagines and genes of ideas which express in one condensed package a powerful political message.
However, Alt Right literature in Europe and the United States does this, using characters such as Pepe the frog to deconstruct and disarm opponents. Hillary Clinton noted this meme war in her Alt Right speech. Pepe and other symbols introduces a sense of iconoclastic fun into an otherwise dry-as-dust, deadly serious debate. It is young person’s radical politics. It is the sort of material that a social media savvy generation loves.

This is not our way, and we should not try to use such techniques because, well, we are all just too old. Nevertheless, good luck to the younger generation in getting these ideas out. It would be good to see memes about fraudulent banking, the corrupt financial system, and the social credit answers as well.
