Memetic Warfare by Jeff Giese

I ripped this from the NATO

It might be the author that posted his own article to create buzz on his own person to get research money, or so the uninformed think he is some expert.

Giese was far from the first to suggest this. Some forward thinkers within the US military were interested in how memes might be used in warfare years before the killing and digital resurrection of Harambe dominated popular culture. Public records indicate that the military’s interest in memes picked up after 2001, spurred by the wars against jihadist terrorist groups and the parallel “War of ideas” with Islamist ideology.
