Dr. Stockmann, resident physician in charge, discovers that the waters are poisoned.
On receiving proof of this, he immediately reports to his associates, but is shocked to find
that instead of being thanked, he is looked upon as a dangerous crank,
motivated by a desire to prove that his fellow townsmen are wrong.
The determined doctor realizes that the honesty and idealism he has counted upon
to make the truth prevail, simply does not exist in the face of selfish "practical" interests.
The press will not report his findings; the officials refuse to give him a hearing;  
he loses his position and the townspeople boycott him;
and every weapon of blackmail, slander, and eviction are brought against his family.
… Stockmann addresses his family: "But remember now,
everybody, you are fighting for the truth and that is why you're alone.
And that makes you strong.“

After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin
to piece together the plot of "The Simpsons" episode "Cape Feare" entirely from memory.
7 years later, this and other snippets of pop culture
(sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs)
have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society,
sincerely trying to hold onto its past. 75 years later, 
these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created.
