This is a lovely discussion. You have captured the essence of a concept which has taken on a life of its own. You do a nice job of describing this as well as thinking about how we transfer our beliefs and ideas. Stories are powerful and this is one of the ways they act on us. Thank you for the clarity of your discussion.


Only you could make this an interesting an read for me. I enjoyed how you weaved me through the 'meme' trail.

Meme is definitely a word I had never put much thought into prior to Zipes' discussion. You did a great job of tying in his definition and reference to fairy tales with our modern cultural phenomena we have experienced with the growth of the internet.

Great discussion and post. Thought provoking, definitely.
