This looks like something that ties into ACL research. Just uploading it, haven't read any of it yet.
Alan, thanks for your reminder about academia's fascination... with study of bioethics. Memetics study and meme theoreticians seem preoccupied strictly with influence and persuasion strategies... and so... they also weave in studies of NLP... political science... salesmanship... marketing... game theory... and war. In the end... it all falls under the rubric of... utilitarianism... since [for them]... always... "the end justifies the means."
