Well, there's a pretty important update to tack onto the meme it appears.

Located Minor is also quite good.
Apparently “Omicron Delta” is an anagram for “Media Control” and this is the latest catnip for the conspiracy fringe. Here some other useful ones.

Here we have an example of the Egregore In Action. This level of misunderstanding about the world would ordinarily be explained by a conspiracy formulated by a secret cabal. But it's not, it's an emergent egregore. @alexandrosM @CJCharchuk
Is there a #misinformation campaign in the US to convince US citizens that 50% or higher of all Covid infections must be hospitalized? If so, who is responsible for it? News media? Facebook, etc.? Russia? Snark aside, it's interesting that *high numeracy* Dems got this so wrong.

If the point of a vaccine has changed from "prevent transmission" to "prevent hospitalization," then Omicron variant should be reclassified as a free, transmittable vaccine.

This clause is the 'out' to allow Twitter to enforce their new policy in one direction instead of both directions. Bookmark this tweet, you'll see this happening within months if not weeks. Because Twitter censors decide what "adds value to the public discourse."

A very long conversation yesterday with @CJCharchuk and @alexandrosM led me to coalesce many different HWFO analysis toolkit items into one concept - "The Egregore." This is a great primer of what we do around here in cultural analysis. hwfo.substack.com/p/memespac…

@jim_rutt gave you a linkback in this one, and tied a lot of the things we were talking about in the podcast into other stuff from your other guests and emergent thoughts about what's been going on since. You might like this.

I was inspired by the weekly @alexandrosM twitter conference call yesterday to explain why the behavior of our institutions looks like a conspiracy theory, when in fact it's a result of the game theory of broken media systems. New article. hwfo.substack.com/p/the-covi…

The Rittenhouse / Arbery juxtaposition is an important one, but it's also important not to lose sight that there were some jacked up things going on in the beginning with the Arbery case that still need to be sorted out. cbsnews.com/news/jackie-john…
