Tolkier's Religion und Ethik

Eine Interpretation von Tolkiens Philosophie in Herr der Ringe.

Je mehr ich den Konflikt zwischen uns Menschen und den "Eliten" betrachte, desto mehr bekomme ich das Gefühl, dass dieser Kampf religiöse Züge hat. Ich bin, wie schonmal erwähnt, nur wenig religiös, aber so langsam lässt sich immer weniger das Böse hinter deren Absichten ignorieren.

Hier wird ua. das folgende Zitat von Saruman erwähnt und recht frei zitiert. Die übliche "Der Zweck heiligt die Mittel" Rechtfertigung. Irgendwie hat mich das berührt. Die momentane Situation fühlt sich genau so an.

"A new Power is rising. Against it the old allies and policies will not avail us.... There is no hope left in Elves or dying Númenor. This then is one choice before you, before us. We may join with that Power. It would be wise, Gandalf.... Its victory is at hand; and there will be rich reward for those that aided it. As the Power grows, its proved friends will also grow; and the Wise, such as you and I, may with patience come at last to direct its courses, to control it. We can bide our time, we can keep our thoughts in our hearts, deploring maybe evils done by the way, but approving the high and ultimate purpose: Knowledge, Rule, Order; all the things that we have so far striven in vain to accomplish, hindered rather than helped by our weak or idle friends. There need not be, there would not be, any real change in our designs, only in our means."
