  • genesis
    • genesis (n.) Old English Genesis, first book of the Pentateuch, from Latin genesis, adopted as title of first book of Old Testament in Vulgate, from Greek genesis "origin, creation, generation," from gignesthai "to be born," related to genos "race, birth, descent" (see genus). As such, it translated Hebrew bereshith, literally "in the beginning," which was the first word of the text, taken as its title. Extended sense of "origin, creation" first recorded in English c.1600.
  • gen-eral
    • general (adj.) c.1200, "comprehensive, inclusive, full," from Latin generalis "relating to all, of a whole class" (contrasted with specialis), from genus (genitive generis) "stock, kind" (see genus). General store attested by 1810, American English; a general hospital (1737) is one not restricted to one class of persons or type of disease. general (n.) Look up general at late 14c., "whole class of things or persons," from general (adj.). Meaning "commander of an army" is 1570s, shortening of captain general, from Middle French capitaine général. The English adjective was affixed to civic officer designations by late 14c. to indicate superior rank and extended jurisdiction.
  • gen-etic
    • genetic (adj.) "pertaining to origins," coined 1831 by Carlyle from Greek genetikos "genitive," from genesis "origin" (see genus). Biological sense first recorded in Darwin, 1859. Related: Genetically. Genetical is attested from 1650s.
  • gen-der ?
    • gender (n.) c.1300, "kind, sort, class," from Old French gendre (12c., Modern French genre), from stem of Latin genus (genitive generis) "race, stock, family; kind, rank, order; species," also (male or female) "sex" (see genus) and used to translate Aristotle's Greek grammatical term genos. The grammatical sense is attested in English from late 14c.; the male-or-female sense from early 15c. As sex took on erotic qualities in 20c., gender came to be the common word used for "sex of a human being," often in feminist writing with reference to social attributes as much as biological qualities; this sense first attested 1963.
    • gender (v.) "to bring forth," late 14c., from Old French gendrer, from Latin generare "to engender" (see generation). Related: Gendered;
    • gendering. neuter (adj.) late 14c., of grammatical gender, "neither masculine nor feminine," from Latin neuter "of the neuter gender," literally "neither one nor the other," from ne- "not, no" (see un-) + uter "either (of two)" (see whether). Probably a loan-translation of Greek oudeteros "neither, neuter." In 16c., it had the sense of "taking neither side, neutral."

This is a story about four people: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it.
Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did.
Somebody got angry (about that) because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody knew that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that Somebody wouldn't do it.
And (/It ended up that) Everybody blamed Somebody because (/when) Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

or the alternative last line:

And (/It ended up that) Everybody blamed Somebody because Nobody actually asked Anybody.

Brian J. Hancock ( Memetic warfare: the future of war, Millitary Intelligence, 36, 2010, 2, pp 41-46)

Memetic warfare is the use of meme's to influence a large group/community/population/most likely even the world to act and behave in certain patterns and manners, Basically NLP on a large-scale. A meme is a sort of imitation unit, it consists of imitating something or someone in a particular manner, by imitating we allow those around us to imitate in the same way, thus, spreading the meme and steering a population in the direction of influence. Meme's are usually acquired and passed on
without us consciously recognizing that we are doing so. So much of our culture and our personalities are based on this principle of imitation that we will often imitate a word, phrase, way of thinking, accent, or whatever that we have seen and heard around us without realizing what we are doing or where we have picked it up from. Memetic warfare is an easy way of controlling society ad steering them in the direction you want them to go. Governments and top world leaders mostly likely use these techniques to control their nations and keep them under control.
