To all the people who are acting like Junko destroying the world through memes is ridiculous
You clearly don’t actually know what a “meme” is. Which is strange, because they gave the definition in the speech. Memes are not just cat pictures and image macros. Those are internet memes.
A meme, according to dictionary.com is: “A cultural item that is transmitted by repetition and replication in a manner analogous to the biological transmission of genes.”
It is a psychological and sociological construct that creates trends and similarities in a community. Fashion trends, popular music, popular fictional genres. These are all cultural memes.
The reason y'all associate it with the internet, is that what we experience on here is a sort of perfected global meme factory, infecting mass groups in obscenely short time periods.
So yes, Junko destroyed the world by manipulating memes. Honestly, I can’t see a more perfect way to do it.
