Basically I reject the idea that you and whatever bunch of people with their heads in the clouds are clued in and most of humanity are living in an abstraction of some sort.  Poverty is not a myth. Neither is wealth. Simply standing there and putting a label on all this and calling it "myth" is a grand act of sticking your head in the sand. Saying that you will be happy in poverty might be something that try. But they will eventually be proven wrong when they can no longer deny it's reality.

And if the idea is that since it's a myth they should just get to live like they aren't poor and have whatever they want... well that's complicated by the reality that other people do work to get compensated with money. And they rightfully aren't going to stand by and have others call that a myth.
Somebody builds roads because people need them. People write computer programs. People go out and owe money all over town including to know pornographers, and that's cool man, but you have to feed the monkey. That is at it's most basic level the least myth that it gets.

The sun comes up everyday and the world works. Because people are all busy doing shit. And for that service they get rewarded.
I fail to see the myth.

Essentially this viewed as an  epistemological question.
I accept the roots of existentialism lying in phenomenology.
The thought as an "intentional object".
Concepts don't have any less actual meaning than concrete objects especially as manifested in action.

Coincidentally the latest SH podcast covers some of these ideas.

Thread starts out "30-year-old evicted from parents' home".
It goes in a direction where the contention is that working for money is only a myth, and what is most important is standing in the forest and experiencing the silence.

Could there be a more perfect illustration of the effects of this sort of claptrap?
Now that his parents have evicted him from the basement he'll have lots of time to experience that reality.

What bothers me is this idea that those of us who work are someone clueless and will never find any enlightenment. But somehow one person here has decided we're guilty of believing in a myth.

That is in essence very conceited. So in order to be enlightened, one must not work and instead "just live." Good luck on eating and not dying of exposure to the elements.

So why should we who work and earn our living take care of those who insist we're ignorant or unenlightened? That's like saying, "I eschew this idea we have to work and earn money, but I deserve to eat, live, and function just like those who earn their own living." Whether you want to live in a minimalist lifestyle or want lots of fancy things, it's not a myth we have to work to earn our living. Otherwise, that person is just a sponge who takes advantage of others.
