A new mythos for modern heretics

It is a feature of twenty first century modernity that the tenets around which society is built and organised exist unchallenged. When there is only one cultural perspective and no alternative story, where is the judgement about the worth of the existing regime meant to come from? The left-right political dichotomy serves liberalism by not challenging it. Democracy sustains the status quo by offering the illusion of choice with no choice. Genuine opposition can only emerge if there is an alternative story with which to counter the current mythos.
