Well, hey, I don't know that contempo culture exactly counts as myth

Well, traditionally most socialist parties haven't made much of a
distinction; but maybe we can have a new kind of politics to permit
notional distinctions rolling off of cultural products, the occasion being
venerable "classical-liberal" institutions.
