Default J. R. R. Tolkien's world a metaphor for our world ?



- - - - - -



Let's look at Tolkien's world . . . . .


Race means everything in Middle-Earth.

We have the humans . .


The dwarves.


The Hobbits . . .


The elves . .


. . as "good guys" . . .



Then we have . . .



The orcs . . .




. . and the Uruk-Hai . . .


. . as "bad guys" . . .



Hmmmmm . .

It is a welcome change to , so far , see a story where race does matter . . .


Further . .

There is a wicked Lord in Middle Earth who wishes to take over . .

He detests humans ( and in a way all dwarves , hobbits , elves fall under the umbrella of 'humans' too since they have human shape , just a different phenotype . .) . .

So he creates a state of beasts who are ready to trash the world of humans . .

He further deceives them by handing out magic rings , supposedly there to 'govern a people' , in reality he has the 'master-ring' to control all others. .




Hmmmm . .




- - - - - - - - -


. . really ?

Could this really be an allusion to our world ?

Let's see . .

The NWO wishes to take over . .

Everybody who digs deeper into politics realises that sooner or later . .

What kinds of methods do they use ?

Banking . .

They have control over the money . .

Money is what makes nations flow . . .

At what expense do they lend it ?

Interest . .

What a way to bleed nations dry . .


And what other methods do they use ?

In order to bring down the European peoples they ecourage multiculturalism . .






- - - - - - -

Well , well , well . .




Aha ! !

Similarities , apparently . .

One would have to be blind to not see them . .

To be honest . .

The way I view it . .

The "One-Ring" is supposed to be a metaphor for the interest system by which the "private bankers" bleed people dry . .


. . i. e. destroy nations . .


Concerning the races of Middle-Earth . .

Isn't that the way the Europeans in "ye olden times" used to view foreigners ?

As 'beasts' ?













So I think one can say . .

Tolkien's world is a perfect metaphor for our world . .

I think it is our world explained from a mythological point of view . .

Who agrees ?

Thanks to the one person who repped me on this so far . .

I feel maybe the phenotypes of Middle Earth are something worthy to go deeper into. .

The elves , more or less ,represent the Aryan phenotype. .

In the plot they are even deemed as having supernatural powers. .


It could be that Tolkien was into the old lores about cosmic entities of Aryan phenotype . .




Evidence for this could be that Galadriel hands Frodo "the light of Earendil ( our beloved star )" and that 'Eldar' means 'people of the stars'. .

All from a mythological point of view. .

The 'dwarves' seem to be the mountain-dwellers , the best craftsmen of Middle-Earth . .

Concerning the 'Hobbits' , hmm . . .

In the end the Hobbits determine the fate of all , as is said in the plot . .

They may be interpreted maybe as a metaphor of the people of the British Isles ( all of their culture indicates this . .) . .

They often have red hair ( a Celtic trade ) . .

Maybe the Scots , specifically . .


The Scots are / were known as being keen freedom fighters . .

I think the fact Tolkien himself was of British descent maybe let him emphasise their role . .

All under the guise of mythology . .

So , it could be interpreted that even the subgroups among the human kin in LOTR are not coincidental . . .

I think I once read Tolkien supposedly was after "making a myth for Britain" with his LOTR saga . .

He sure was into mythology . .


In the end the Hobbits are the heroes . .

In fact "the Shire" is quite in the center of all of Tolkien's stories . .

Coincidence ?

Hmmmmm . .

LOTR sure can be seen as eurocentric . .

Even if it was only for our mythology being held up . .

Germanic , Celtic etc . .

In a way the picture of Tolkien's world even makes sense since people in "ye olden times" had a different explanation for "the world around us" . .

Eurocentric , to say the last.

I think the main focus is on Celtic mythology . .

Wizards , warlocks , witches etc . .

Tolkien's roots himself were on the British Isles . .

Maybe he specifically wanted to "hold up" the Celtic pepole . .

The Celtic people resisted against Roman imperialism in olden times and for a while even against the Anglo-Saxon takeover . .

Great freedom fighters.

Like I said , everything about the Hobbits' culture reminds one of Britain . .






. . maybe the Scots specifically . .

They are known for being autonomous when faced by other forces taking over. .



So , I think overall one could say , special emphasis on the Germanic / Celtic peoples . .

On a side note , it would appear though some people ( even if they can see a certain symbolism is Tolkien's world ) misunderstand . . .

Varg Vikernes is an example.

Varg ( born Kristian Vikernes )


interpreted Tolkien's world . .

https://folk.uib.no/hnohf/greven.htm

. . like that .

Anyway . . .

Parallels between old European folklore and the world of Tolkien are hard to ignore.

His later band 'Burzum' was named after an expression from LOTR.

In the end , I think one can say . .

Tolkien's world = OUR world from a pagan point of view . .

Our heathen forebears were very conscious of their blood ,believed in mythology and ,indeed , viewed other races as 'beasts' , i. e. as the barbarian savages they are portrayed as in Tolkien'world . .
