I've noticed that some memes have a very...VERY strong hold. Relegious memes for example...or the anti-gun meme. Facts make very little impression on those who are infected by that meme.
For example...it has already been metioned that when gun profliferation increases among the populace as a whole that violent crimes decrease. This is documented...repeatable...and is not subject to doubt. The phrase "An armed society is a polite society"...has basis in fact. It happens every time. Well this is in contradiction to the antigun meme...so it gets ignored.
"Don't bother me with facts...my mind is made up".
How do you combat such highly infectious mind destroying memes?
