  • Very interesting. In Tolkien’s world, “free people” are the “good guys”, and this designation never includes races such as orcs or trolls. At the Council of Elrond, Boromir makes reference to the “free lords of the free”, which now seems like a bit of an oxymoron.

    Now I’m going to question every sci-fi or fantasy storyline that portrays every member of an intelligent species or race as inherently evil.
