Lewis and Tolkien Debate Myths and Lies

Interesting video I found while scouting youtube. It's a catholic piece but I'm interested to hear some discussion!

I like this quote " Myths exsist outside of the prison."
Though I can't agree with "Christianity is the archetype from which all myths spring."
I would say,in a simple way what made it so powerful was a copy and paste method with a few brush ups.
