    The myth of the rat race is the myth of keeping up with Moloch. To choose a different myth, one of being happy with what one has, or the myth of being made happy by other races than the rat one, or the myths provided by myths themselves.

    If you want to remain a community member in good standing, you probably want a myth that harmonizes with the community’s chosen myths than one that is dissonant.

    If you want to change the community, you’re going to need a better myth. And “better” is defined by one that can pick up adherents rather than whether it harmonizes.Report

    Can a thing be a known fact as well as a myth? If so, what work is done by calling it a myth? (Are vaccines next?)Report
