The Last March of the Ents?

I don�t agree with all of it, but Victor Davis Hanson has a cool column today on the �Ents of Europe� and the War on Terror. J.R.R. Tolkien probably would have hated it, once writing that �The Lord of the Rings� was �neither allegorical nor topical.� As these things go though, Hanson�s analogy strikes me as pretty apt.
Hopefully, for all of us, the final outcome will be similar.

  1. Tolkein’s stories were fables, not allegories. While that means he had no particular political objective, a good fable speaks to deep human truths, and thus is adaptable to any number of political arguments.
