    The problem is that when the lie, misinformation, or misquote is more interesting than the truth, people want to believe the lie.

    That’s what makes teaching high school kids so much fun, and also so intensely infuriating.

    The same willingness they have to believe false political posts on Facebook or fake facts on Instagram is the same thing that leads them to believe me when I tell them there’s a pool on the (nonexistent) 4th floor, or that the hardass math teacher has a glass eye. The lie is more fun.

    Maybe so. Different sides of the same coin?

    I am very content that I do not know how to create one of those "meme" graphics that everyone else seems to do.

    That's total BS, it's more like 81% don't care.

    It's recommended that one eschews their ignorance at least fifty times before swallowing.

    You didn't even back that up with a good meme of Tom Selleck shooting a bucket load of crap at 900 yards. How much stock can we put in that bit of advice?

    Thanks for reminding me, I keep forgetting to sign up to farcebook.

    Maybe next year, if I get snowed in and the lawn mower won't start.

    OK subbing between virtue and value makes sense, and clarifies how you were using virtue.
    At the same time, value seems to be science based in terms of a value can be measured and quantified, while our values are often irrational and even a bunch of hoodoo.

    But then looking at a morning view of virtue, as opposed to my late night view of virtue, I have to admit that from a common locker room mentality, the oft seen veiled misogyny might actually be held as a virtue in those private men only cloisters.

    And we are also more and more seeing hate held up as a virtue, as if the whole worlds locker room walls fell away and the boorish butt sniffing meta dogman packs no longer need privacy for their hating.

    The two sides of the same coin suggestion from @burntfrijoles might apply in terms of those on the "other side" of whatever a meme attempts to reinforce, read an entirely backwards message.
    Then the two sides of confirmation bias vs creating a new values set that was not already in place.

    In any test groups there will be the A side, the B side, and the undecideds.
    Meme mentality or meme culture or meme psychology might rally enough fools to a select foolishness to make a good percentage of the undecideds feel a surge of mental security and rally over toward stupid, instead of asking questions in an environment where pitchforks are being waved vigorously by an angry mob.

    While us humans, we who like to think we are above the animal level, really are pack animals, and always have been inclined to gather into angry mobs, take up arms over ideologies, beat down the minority critter that finds itself alone:

    We humans are in a renaissance of hate, and also in a renaissance of dumb ideas with massive gravitational pull created by FB semi-anonymous mob mentality.

    And/ or/ at the same time: of course humanity has been unable to get along pretty much since the beginning.
    The worst has usually been contained in areas of the "thems", but now it seems as the fishbowl is full, the walls between the us's and the thems, or the walls around the locker room; have fallen away, and our worst is showing best.
    Like a combover in the wind, we have met the enemy, and Pogo was right.
