One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. ~ JRR Tolkien
ED: I debated whether or not to include this objectionable image from the original posting of this article. I do not like the work of Lucien Freud considering him to have ridden to fame by riding on his family name. He is one of the many Jewish artists who set out (and to some degree have succeeded) in destroying true art for "modern" schock. Ugly is part of life and art but why revel in it?
This was a remark that transported me immediately into a more sunny and innocent past, but also made me decline any comment. Because this was after all Germany, a country ruled by politically correct criminals that long since have booted the freedom of expression as laid down in the constitution, and who slap you for years on end into the cooler if you dare to insist on it.
It takes Alberich only a moment to make up his mind.
As for the Sent-One, there comes a day when he will be assessed more objectively and not just demonised out of all proportion. When some of the most hideous accusations levelled against him might crumble like a house of cards in a cloud of dust about as big as the one at 9/11 and its official explanations. This could result in two schools of thought, namely one where he remains indeed a villain, and another that pronounces him the most tragic character that ever walked the earth.
Today this kind of sugar-coating can have a sour aftertaste, due to an unforeseen invention called the Internet which markedly diminished the control of the Media Mafia and its sniffing, lying, cajoling, mudslinging lackeys. That is why the Bushes and Blairs of this world have become lepers instead of paragons, with motions underway to hold them responsible for their crimes, including the death of countless women and children and that of many fine soldiers whose intentionally poor equipment has prolonged the conflict to this day.
