The thing I like about the Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism meme is the way it sets a goal of economic and social equality amidst abundance. In practice, I will go into very wonky detail about universal basic income supported by well-regulated markets, because we know a lot more how to make those work than we do actual communism, but “Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism” is a much snappier slogan. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/fully-automated-luxury-gay-space-communism
There is now a Gritty version of the Galaxy Brain meme. Apparently Gritty is becoming a leftist icon: https://www.theverge.com/2018/10/17/17990016/gritty-philadelphia-flyers-leftists-activism-protest-symbol
