From one of my colleagues in Poland:
Well, I don’t know why but that brings a memory of what I read about Lord of the rings….
You see, back in the communist era, there were people that were writing things aligned to what the party’s doctrine was and so some idiot wrote a review of the LotR
And so in his review, sauron was a poor land owner who was struggling with adverse actions lead by the revolutionary hobbits who were ugly sinners because they were so close with each other and wanted to grab Sauron’s land.
Totally skewed view of the whole book. Now, it’s entertaining to read, hehe.
