Subject: RE: BS: Deathly Hallows Part 2
I have always viewed the Harry Potter series to be less about a boy coming of age and battling the evil that destroyed his parents,
and more about Hogwarts being a microcosm representation of a nation slowly falling prey to fascism.

It shows how key appointments undermine the institution and how a corrupted press makes it possible despite the magority of people seeing the opposite of what is reported.

False flag terrorist attacks and targeted attacks on individuals is instrumental in weakening a nation enough to fall prey to insidious forces out to enrich themselves.

Seeing the series from such a perspective while being entertained by both joyous and threateningly fearful magic is a masterful way to present the teachings.

Voldemort seeks a dynasty of himself within his own search for immortality. A thousand year Reich under one despot.

While we learn the problem could have been resolved easily along the way if only the Council or the newspaper did their job, it shows that supream sacrifice will result in battling the forces of greed and evil once they gain a foothold.
