Dan Dennet on Dangerous Memes

“Learn the facts, figure out the implications.”

This is a great speech by philosopher Dan Dennet from 2002’s TED conference. From the parasite that drives ants to suicidal behavior, to the parasitical ideas that people die for, this is a great, succinct encapsulation of what has driven human beings through the ages. This speech is just as relevant today as it was 6 years ago.
