I may have just become a big fan of the Lord of the Rings. I was having a discussion with my boss wherein I was advancing my libertarian/anarchist position: that the centralization of power is a root of all kinds of evil. So it just now dawns on me that this is what Tolkien is doing in his books. Centralized power is represented by One Ring To Rule Them All. The bad guys and the good guys fight to have the Ring. The bad guys want to use the Ring to rule over others and exploit them. They are destructive and want power for the sake of power…..And the good guys? Why do they want the Ring?
