    Do you agree or disagree?

    That society is held together by certain lies and myths. Without certain lies and myths, our society could fall apart.

    Of course...

    We call these 'lies' cultural truisms...All of these things, right or wrong, real or not real, lies and truth, hang loosely on individual relativity...

    As far as society falling apart, I doubt that this will ever happen...I can't think of a single 'lie' that would break down the social construct...The biggest thing I can think of is if there was some sort of conclusive evidence that Jesus didn't exist, but even then, people have believed that for so long that will scream hoax either way...
