I like the Angel Rufus, from the movie DOGMA:

RUFUS: I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant.

Follow Your Bliss,
Ben

I can agree with that.

Police officers acquitted for beating a 64 yr old man recently in New Orleans. In the words of their defense attorney "all he had to do was comply"....and they wouldn't have fractured his face.

Your friend greatly underestimates the power of memes.

Numerous times through history a meme has massively changed world belief systems in short times (or major subsets of the world). In antiquity this has happened as quickly as days, weeks, or months. In modern times this has happened in hours, minutes, or even seconds.

Then read it again. Laughing

If anything, it underscores the power of memes.
