Very likely. I was thinking about posting something on the memetic aspects of this. Apparently Dawkins sees the most potential for memetics in studying the interactions between different memes and memeplexes -- like short-termist individual profit seeking, freemarket ideologizing, support for big biz and global warming, for instance -- and I think he might well be right.
