This last one is interesting in the way it incorporates culture as an additional layer, from a sociological standpoint that’s largely unnecessary as culture is a component within each layer, so separating it is likely for the particular application’s emphasis on the importance of culture’s impact at each level as well.

I won’t be posting as much to my old blog, but recently Last Week Tonight has had some health related themes. Jeff is as much a symbol for lung cancer as he can be for liver cancer. #JeffWeCan is a cheeky idea that can give people a symbol for global anti-smoking, it can help countries fight the absurd corporate bullies.
