My theory:

1. Criticizing western traditions is enshrined in western culture.
2. Criticizing non-western traditions is verboten.

Hence the east Asian martial arts mythos, which is roughly as plausible as King Arthur and Excalibur, Siegfried and the Dragon, etc., and somewhat less plausible than The Man With No Name's skill with a gun, is swallowed more or less whole by western rubes desperate for something to believe in, but denied their own (earnest) mythology.

Okay, sorry, I'll ease up. It's just so funny, and so tragic, at the same time...
