lawsd, did you mean *joseph* campbell? that name fits this thread
i think...

as for the power of myth, i propose this thought experiment. imagine
everyone who reads this newsgroup. would you estimate there are

our half life, the time when half would be murdered by terrified neighbors,
burned at the stake for witchcraft, etc? a month? two? spike
