What is an Old Myth? A New Myth?

Old Myths are:

Derived and run thru Church teachings and doctrine
People think that resources last forever
Babies are an unlimited resource – no birth controls required
Husband + Wife is the norm
Kings and Presidents rule top-down in a hierarchy

New Myths are:

Personal, created by individuals and the community
Acknowledge that resources are finite
Include solar and recycling
Acknowledge the population crash coming
Acknowledge all types of friendships and relationships
Champion interdependence and sharing

Regeneration
Food - Organic
