If you enjoyed the black Lord of the Rings you’re going to love the black Lord of the Rings gaming franchise.

RT:

Intellectual Property rights to J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ have been sold to publishing giant Embracer Group, according to a company statement announcing it had entered into a total of five acquisition deals on Thursday as well as a sixth, with a “PC/Console gaming company.”

Embracer Group, which has been buying up almost any video game publisher or studio it can get its hands on, announced the acquisition of Limited Run Games, Tripwire Interactive, Tuxedo Labs, Japanese game studio Tatsujin as well as Middle-earth Enterprises – the company that has owned nearly all the rights to Tolkien’s works since 1976.

Earlier this year, the Saul Zaentz Company, which owned Middle-earth Enterprises announced that it would for the first time offer the rights for \$2 billion. However, Embracer’s public statement revealed that it spent only \$6 billion Swedish Kronas for all its purchases on Thursday, which is roughly equivalent to \$575 million.

Embracer sucks. They are buying everything (check the Wikipedia list of acquisitions) and they suck. It’s not even limited to games – they bought Dark Horse Comics last year.

I don’t know if these people are Jews – I can’t tell if Scandinavian names are Jewish or not. But I do know they suck.

It frankly doesn’t seem like it is Jews, because they had a good business plan (that you can read about in this Gamespot article) that involved strategically building up capital rather than just getting some massive loan through Jew nepotism.

It doesn’t matter if they’re Jews, because this whole model of mega-corporations buying up literally everything is Jewish in nature. Obviously, goyim have to copy the model to compete with Jews, but it just never, ever leads to anything good. Everything produced by these mega-corporations is sanitized and sterilized, designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

I never played any of the big LotR games. But JRR Tolkien is “exhibit A” in the argument for why copyright law is complete lunacy. I’m not an expert in the field, and I’m sure there are some arguments for protecting copyright while someone is alive so they can earn that income. But turning a system designed to keep people from profiting by printing someone else’s books into a system of keeping legal possession of ideas and words from 100 years ago is clearly just a scam. Tolkien has been dead for 50 years. LotR should be in the public domain, not being sold by the Jews for billions of dollars.

Tolkien died before video games existed, but he’s surely someone who would have been interested in the medium if he’d lived to see it. Now, ask yourself: would he prefer if 50 years after he died Jews were charging \$2 billion (or \$5765 million – whatever) to make a game based on his works? Or do you think he would say that the characters and ideas from LotR belong to everyone, and anyone should be able to take a shot at making a Middle-earth game?

The theory is, the family has the rights to the concepts and ideas after the creator dies, because the family should be able to make infinity money off the creative works of their dead family members, and then the Jews can buy the rights from the family and then resell them at billions in profit.

Why do things not enter into the public domain anymore? Is it because of the Jews?

Yep.

The Jews over at Disney have kept the copyright scam going based on trying to keep Mickey Mouse from being drawn in a pornographic manner, which would hurt children (never mind that Jews also legalized pornography in the first place). That was the argument.

The first law protecting copyright, the Copyright Act of 1790, gave 28 years of exclusive publication rights to an author. If the book was still selling well after that period, he could renew the copyright for another 14 years, which would give him a total of 42 years. It expired when a man died. That was the original concept of copyright that has been transformed into this Jewish scam. Everyone likes money and everyone has a right to make money, but a family wanting to continue to bank off of a copyright after someone has died (and they’ve already inherited all the wealth that someone made during their life) – this is just Jews exploiting human selfishness for their own purposes.

Tolkien originally sold the movie rights to LotR for – let’s see here – oh – 1000 times less than Amazon paid the Jews for them.

That fat Jew Harry Saltzman bought the rights to ALL James Bond movies from Ian Fleming for \$50,000. Stan Lee, creator of virtually all of the characters in the MCU – and himself Jewish, actually – was nearly destitute in his old age while all of these films were coming out.

So, this is clearly not about protecting the authors.

This situation is clearly ridiculous. If “intellectual property” shouldn’t simply be abolished outright in the digital age, then at the very least it should end when a person dies.

    Tolkien’s masterpieces have been judaically transmogrified into a dagger that is being stabbed into the heart of European culture.

    I figured out that “copyright” law was a scam for Jewish lawyers long before I became an “anti-semite”.

    One of the newer aspects of the entire gaming culture is that all games seem to require that one has some kind of online “computer gaming” account with one of the “computer gaming” monopolies. These actions by Embracer would be a typical judaic strategy to buy up all the Goyim eye balls so that they can be harvested on the internet, or the coming “Meta” virtual world.

    To paraphrase Claus Schwab, ”

    You will own nothing, but you will be happy in the virtual gaming universe

    While I enjoy the works of Tolkien, the reality is that Tolkien was a naive fool when it came to understanding what true evil really was. He was your typical good mannered British citizen that was absolutely clueless about the jews, the perversion and destruction of his works by these corporate jews was very predictable.

  9. Dumbo says:

    I think I’m one of the few people who doesn’t care so much about Lord of the Rings. I tried to read it and found it boring. In this sense I agree with Borges, who found it tedious and never got into Tolkien, comparing him negatively to others such as Carroll. But I guess Borges in general preferred shorter works that went straight to the point than extremely long works.

    The films too were overlong, even if they had some moments. But I guess Tolkien was important and significative. He created a host of very bad imitators, too.

    I also think “intellectual property” is mostly a scam. It didn’t exist before mass media. It doesn’t really benefit authors as much as big companies such as Disney.

    But to make a compromise, perhaps copyright could extend for 20-25 years after an author’s death — to its immediate family ONLY. If they sell them to a company or someone else, the rights are cancelled. It shouldn’t be possible to sell intellectual rights, or for them to belong to a company. Just, at most, 20 years to sons or relatives of the author, then it becomes public domain.

    That was an interesting interview, but actually only a small part was directly about Tolkien.

    I found Michael Jones’s discussion of the ring and how Tolkien plagiarized the idea from Wagner to be quite ironic in light of ZOG’s war against all things Wagner due to National Socialism’s idolizing of him. Actually it was Hitler who loved Wagner far more than the rest of the NSDAP, but then again Hitler, like Tolkien, fought for years in the trenches. The irony here is that the ZOG propaganda organs by copying Tolkien give credence to the superiority of European culture and then by association to the NSDAP.

    Jones also gets into how Tolkien clearly used the Dwarves as substitutes for Judea, with their love of gold and their search for new homeland. But Jones goes on to say that Tolkien was sympathetic to Jews and their “predicament” in the Germany under the NSDAP. So I guess we can

    Bullshit. For a long time copyright didn’t exist and authors used each other’s material at will. Shakespeare copied and pasted from lots of sources.

    Murnau didn’t pay the rights for “Dracula”, changed the names and created a film that is a greater artistic piece than the original novel.

    “Intellectual rights” should not be held by companies, especially not companies unrelated to the original creators. If anyone should profit, it’s only the author. But he’s usually the last one to profit.

    Tolkien didn’t “plagiarize” Wagner as much as reply to him, offering an Anglo-Saxon version of Volsunga’s saga to stand against Wagner’s Germanic one. I am no opera fan but on the merit of the storyline alone, Tolkien’s adaptation is by far the more creative.

    The other thing you can do, without even violently seizing the government so as to re-write the law, is to write your own LoTR. Lots of knockoffs skirt copyright law. N.B. standing on the shoulders of giants lets you see farther, so it should be possible to right not just some cheap knockoff, but a genuinely superior version of the thing.

    If you don’t want “corporations” to benefit from your copyrights, buy the copyrights back. Or – get ready to have your tiny mind completely blown – don’t sell them to corporations in the first place.

    In short, quit trying to be Communists who get everything for free. Don’t throw tantrums about someone doing things to stuff they own and you don’t own, especially when you could most certainly own it if you wanted it enough. You’re not two years old anymore; secure your shit.

    Agree bigly with all points. Especially Tolkien being long and boring.

    As a teen in the 60s never knew anyone who read it, much less obsessed over it. I suppose it was read by a handful of proto-nerds. With the spread of PC’s and gamer culture it became part of the whole “nerd culture” which is decadent and about as relevant to White survival as Klingon language camp.

    Tolkien admitted he only wrote the books to provide texts for his invented languages. That should tell you how important honor, bravery, etc. were to him. Any mediaeval atmos is simply a residual product of his happening to be a Catholic, and if he’d been Jewish it would have been all about Zion.

    I did read Bored of the Rings by the Harvard Lampoon guys and that was enough. It’s been reissued and I recommend it anyone wanting to get up to speed on LOTR. Just remember the names are changed: Dildo, Arrowroot son of Arrowshirt, etc. 40 years later it was enough to follow the first film (never bothered with the rest).

    Blablabla. Who says anything about getting stuff you don’t own? The discussion is about current copyright laws that extend intellectual property rights 75 years after the author’s death so that people who are not the author nor related to him in any way can make money. You think that’s a nice law. I happen to disagree. Whatever. Stop with your patronizing bullshit. Many creators are against current copyright laws. Also, lots of creators have been screwed out of their own creations by lawyers, producers or corporations. i.e. Stallone vs. Winkler:

    Tolkien didn’t “plagiarize” Wagner as much as reply to him, offering an Anglo-Saxon version of Volsunga’s saga to stand against Wagner’s Germanic one.

    With respect, Felix, I don’t entirely agree. There is extraordinarily little in Tolkien’s own writing or in his recently deceased son Christopher’s accounts of his father’s work and its sources—an amount of biographical, philological, and interpretative research so vast that the word voluminous is inadequate to its description—to support the sort of conscious cultural parallelism the quoted sentence points to. In his lifetime, Tolkien more than once politely and graciously dismissed attempts to link LotR and The Nibelung’s Ring beyond what he once termed the two works’ obvious reliance on inspiration drawn from the same primary sources, especially the Volsungasaga and the Elder Edda. (Despite widespread assumptions to the contrary, the impact of the Nibelungenlied on either work is absolutely minimal.)

    Still less is there support for EMJ’s offhand dismissal of Tolkien’s “myth-making” oeuvre as rooted in plagiarism. What Doctor Jones overlooks or simply may not know is that Wagner and Tolkien, despite devising their respective creative works from much of the same source material, came to an interest in that source material from directions that certainly do not support a claim of, shall we say, dependence of the later on the earlier.

    As published catalogs of the contents of Wagner’s Dresden library from the late 1840s show, Wagner was plainly one of the most widely read men of his era, whether one is referring to the Greco-Roman classics, the Italian literature of the High Middle Ages and the Renaissance, or all of Western philosophy from the Pre-Socratics through to his own day. Wagner was also caught up in the intellectual ferment generated by the historical, narrative, and philological research of the brothers Grimm, among a half-dozen or so other pioneering historical philologists. It was via their influence that Wagner became passionate about the literature of medieval Germany, Iceland, and Scandinavia.

    In Tolkien’s case, a fascination with and love for language—perhaps rooted in his having been transplanted from South Africa to the English West Midlands when he was four years old—were primary passions from early boyhood. He specialized in Old Norse while at Oxford (Exeter College), and encouraged by Joseph Wright, then the foremost scholar of old Germanic languages in the English-speaking world, Tolkien subsequently made a close study of Gothic—i.e., the language of the Goths. Tolkien saw the English language as part of the Germanic family of languages (as indeed it is), and this consciousness became the mainspring for the bulk of his life’s work: creating not so much a mythology for England as a native English–based literature that drew upon “myths” that were, in effect, the product of his own understanding of England’s historical place in a world whose imaginative resources were largely philologically German in origin.

    In other words, I think it is more accurate to say that the obvious parallels in the work of Wagner and Tolkien stem from the “communal” nature of their source material, material that had first struck Wagner’s fancy in his twenties but that had been integral to Tolkien’s psychological and spiritual landscape from the single-digit period of his life.

    One last thing. Although Tolkien loved music deeply, albeit not to the extent he loved poetry and tales,* this aspect of his character is seldom remarked upon. Yet surely every reader with strong musical sensibilities has been struck by the fact that the texts of the various races’ songs in LotR seem to cry out for music to accompany them. Among writers in English, his only equal in this regard is Shakespeare.
    _______
    *It is interesting that, by his own account and with the sole exception of the four great Greek playwrights, he loathed the theater. He wasn’t even especially fond of Shakespeare, aside from the sonnets.

    I had never really thought much about the Dwarves being Jews until I watched that E Michael Jones video in comment #1. To be honest, I was always more focused on the parallels between Orcs and Negroes. Jones also mentioned how Tolkien was writing Lord of the Rings during the build up to WWII, and how the zeitgeist of that period was about sympathy for the “downtrodden” Jews. When I look back on the portrayal of the Dwarves in Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, it really does seem that Tolkien was acting as a philo-jewish propaganda organ.

    One could easily consider Tolkien’s metaphore to be that Smaug was equivalent Nazi Germany, who just went out and murdered all those poor Dwarves for no reason at all and then stole their gold.

    When I consider all the interesting parallels between the eternal “victims” known as Jews, and the Dwarves in the Hobbit, I find it hard to believe that it was just an innocent non-political book written for his grandchildren.

    In this recent Jay Dyer interview, Jay describes how Ian Flemming, the author of the James Bond novels, was inserting MIC/Deep State messages and predictive programming into his writing, even foreshadowing the war on terror that would come into fruition 50-60 years later. This is not too far off in time from when Tolkien was writing, and if Flemming was spreading ZOG propaganda in the 4o’s and 50’s, then there is no reason to think that Tolkien couldn’t have been performing the same kind of assignments in exchange for certain forms of compensation.

  39. 24 comments and nobody mentioned the incomparable T. B. Macaulay on copyright? Bad times indeed. Here are his two speeches on copyright, which will help you make up your mind about why copyright should exist but why it should be limited to as minimum as possible. And, for those who shout, “Communist!”, Macaulay was far from being a Communist.

    1. https://www.gutenberg.org/files/2170/2170-h/2170-h.htm#link2H_4_0018

    2. https://www.gutenberg.org/files/2170/2170-h/2170-h.htm#link2H_4_0019

    Some excerpts:

    “The advantages arising from a system of copyright are obvious. It is desirable that we should have a supply of good books; we cannot have such a supply unless men of letters are liberally remunerated; and the least objectionable way of remunerating them is by means of copyright. You cannot depend for literary instruction and amusement on the leisure of men occupied in the pursuits of active life.”

    “Copyright is monopoly, and produces all the effects which the general voice of mankind attributes to monopoly.”

    “…the effect of monopoly generally is to make articles scarce, to make them dear, and to make them bad.”

    “Thus, then, stands the case. It is good that authors should be remunerated; and the least exceptionable way of remunerating them is by a monopoly. Yet monopoly is an evil. For the sake of the good we must submit to the evil; but the evil ought not to last a day longer than is necessary for the purpose of securing the good.”

    “A monopoly of sixty years produces twice as much evil as a monopoly of thirty years, and thrice as much evil as a monopoly of twenty years. But it is by no means the fact that a posthumous monopoly of sixty years gives to an author thrice as much pleasure and thrice as strong a motive as a posthumous monopoly of twenty years. On the contrary, the difference is so small as to be hardly perceptible.”

    [MORE]

    “But an advantage that is to be enjoyed more than half a century after we are dead, by somebody, we know not by whom, perhaps by somebody unborn, by somebody utterly unconnected with us, is really no motive at all to action.”

    “The principle of copyright is this. It is a tax on readers for the purpose of giving a bounty to writers. The tax is an exceedingly bad one; it is a tax on one of the most innocent and most salutary of human pleasures; and never let us forget, that a tax on innocent pleasures is a premium on vicious pleasures. I admit, however, the necessity of giving a bounty to genius and learning. In order to give such a bounty, I willingly submit even to this severe and burdensome tax.”

    “the fate of Milton’s granddaughter has been brought forward by the advocates of monopoly. My honourable and learned friend has repeatedly told the story with great eloquence and effect. He has dilated on the sufferings, on the abject poverty, of this ill-fated woman, the last of an illustrious race. He tells us that, in the extremity of her distress, Garrick gave her a benefit, that Johnson wrote a prologue, and that the public contributed some hundreds of pounds.”

    “Why, at that time, the duration of copyright was longer than even he, at present, proposes to make it. The monopoly lasted, not sixty years, but for ever. At the time at which Milton’s granddaughter asked charity, Milton’s works were the exclusive property of a bookseller.”

    “Here, then, is a perfect illustration of the effect of long copyright. Milton’s works are the property of a single publisher. Everybody who wants them must buy them at Tonson’s shop, and at Tonson’s price. Whoever attempts to undersell Tonson is harassed with legal proceedings. Thousands who would gladly possess a copy of Paradise Lost, must forego that great enjoyment. And what, in the meantime, is the situation of the only person for whom we can suppose that the author, protected at such a cost to the public, was at all interested? She is reduced to utter destitution. Milton’s works are under a monopoly. Milton’s granddaughter is starving. The reader is pillaged; but the writer’s family is not enriched. Society is taxed doubly. It has to give an exorbitant price for the poems; and it has at the same time to give alms to the only surviving descendant of the poet.”

    Wonderful logic; excellent examples; convincing arguments; I wonder if there is one Member of Parliament who can be equally persuasive? The English race has deteriorated indeed.

    James Perloff had an interesting article about Hollywood helping to set up the UN acknowledgement of Israel in 1947. If all of Hollywood has been taking the MIC/CIA dime to promote all kinds of political agendas including the founding of Israel, then why couldn’t Tolkien have been on their dime as well, writing about those poor Dwarves regaining their kingdom under the lone mountain? Even the Oscar award for best picture in 1948 were awarded to a very poor quality film about Jews:

    1948: HARRY TRUMAN, THE NAKBA, AND THE MYSTERY OF THE “BEST PICTURE” OSCAR

    What amazed us was that this yawner had won the “Best Picture” Oscar. Mind you, we had nothing against the film’s message: that anti-Semitism is wrong. My father was Jewish himself, though non-practicing and completely assimilated into American culture. What bothered us was the flat-tire script that not even Gregory Peck or the gifted director Elia Kazan could pump life into.

    Today, nearly half a century later, as a veteran alt-media writer, that Oscar no longer mystifies me. It was awarded on March 20, 1948. Less than two months later, the state of Israel was proclaimed; on that same day, ignoring the objections of his advisers, Harry Truman made the United States the world’s only country to recognize it.

    Dignified and popularized by its “Best Picture” status, Gentleman’s Agreement served to prep the American public for the big day, and helped ensure that opposition to the decision would be silenced—for Judaism is often conflated with Zionism, and Gentleman’s Agreement continually suggested that any criticism of Jews, however minor or inadvertent, must be stamped out (a joke today, Hitler tomorrow). Indeed, Dorothy McGuire is unable to win Gregory Peck until, at the film’s end, she too takes an active stand against anti-Semitism.

    Suddenly Tolkien’s saga about downtrodden Dwarves as cardboard cutouts for Jews makes a lot more sense.

  41. Tolkien invented a mythology from whole cloth for the modern England of his time using Germanic, Scandinavian, Finnish, Greek and Roman mythologies while disavowing his use of Celtic(mainly Scottish and Irish) mythologies, paradoxically loving the Welsh language as he used it as the base for Elvish. The most obvious being the name for ring in Irish Gaeilge being ‘nasc’ and Scottish Gàidhlig ‘nasg’ meaning a bond or obligation in his own words. He was an English Roman Catholic in England…enemy within and all that. Funny character, taught and toured Ireland and professed to love the people but would deny the obvious influence in his work. I read his books as a young lad and just thought it was another story and forgive him our transubstantiation into Dunlendings. It’s 1984 “Whatcha mean there’s no tranny trolls? It’s there in the Legendarium”

    ‘I was from early days grieved by the poverty of my own beloved country: it had no stories of its own (bound up with its tongue and soil), not of the quality that I sought, and found (as an ingredient) in legends of other lands. There was Greek, and Celtic, and Romance, Germanic, Scandinavian, and Finnish (which greatly affected me); but nothing English, save impoverished chap-book stuff. Of course there was and is all the Arthurian world, but powerful as it is, it is imperfectly naturalized, associated with the soil of Britain but not with English; and does not replace what I felt to be missing. For one thing its ‘faerie’ is too lavish, and fantastical, incoherent and repetitive. For another and more important thing: it is involved in, and explicitly contains the Christian religion.

    Do not laugh! But once upon a time (my crest has long since fallen) I had a mind to make a body of more or less connected legend, ranging from the large and cosmogonic, to the level of romantic fairy-story-the larger founded on the lesser in contact with the earth, the lesser drawing splendour from the vast backcloths – which I could dedicate simply to: to England; to my country. It should possess the tone and quality that I desired, somewhat cool and clear, be redolent of our ‘air’ (the clime and soil of the North West, meaning Britain and the hither parts of Europe: not Italy or the Aegean, still less the East), and, while possessing (if I could achieve it) the fair elusive beauty that some call Celtic (though it is rarely found in genuine ancient Celtic things), it should be ‘high’, purged of the gross, and fit for the more adult mind of a land long now steeped in poetry. I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama. Absurd’

    When I look back on the portrayal of the Dwarves in Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, it really does seem that Tolkien was acting as a philo-jewish propaganda organ.

    It isn’t clear one way or the other from your comment, but I get the distinct impression that you are reacting to the movies rather than the books. Am I right or wrong? As I have never seen any of the Hobbit films, however, in part because I was very offended by what Peter Jackson did to the second and third parts of LotR, an impression is all that my reaction can honestly be said to be.

    My point, to speak plainly, is that I simply don’t see how a reader of the books could react as you have. I first read LotR in the autumn of 1966, and I reread it either four or five times subsequently, though the last time was almost thirty years ago. Nor does The Silmarillion display any evidence of “philo-Jewish propaganda”—and that is a book that I reread much more recently. The same is true of the Book of Lost Tales and of the four or five volumes in the History of Middle-Earth series that I read before failing eyesight changed the reading of books from a fulfilling pleasure to a wearisome chore.

  47. JRR Tolkien is “exhibit A” in the argument for why copyright law is complete lunacy. I’m not an expert in the field, and I’m sure there are some arguments for protecting copyright while someone is alive so they can earn that income. But turning a system designed to keep people from profiting by printing someone else’s books into a system of keeping legal possession of ideas and words from 100 years ago is clearly just a scam.

    There is every reason to believe that Tolkien would have had no quarrel with Anglin on this score.

    A Statement from the Author about This American Edition

    “This paperback edition, and no other, has been published with my consent and co-operation. Those who approve of courtesy (at least) to living authors will purchase it, and no other.”
    —JRR Tolkien [as reproduction of signature]

    The author’s note reproduced above,* which reasonably asks for exclusivity during the author’s lifetime, was printed on the back of every copy of the first authorized US paperback edition of LotR. A pirate paperback edition from Ace Books had appeared in, I believe, 1964. Besides preventing Tolkien from earning even a cent for his labors, the edition was riddled with errors, virtually on every page. The authorized edition, published by Ballantine Books, then a division of Houghton Mifflin (both now RIP in the form in which they existed then), was almost identical to the hardcover edition of the mid-fifties. Corrections from Tolkien’s original MS submission, along with subsequent corrections that the author made to his own MS, became justifications for full republication in the late seventies (if memory serves).

    Tolkein’s peak stuff is distinctly mediocre. It has its high points, but it’s way too infected with Christianity to actually be good.

    Nevertheless, this compares favourably to nearly every other author of the so-called democratic age.

    E.g. there’s a ring a power, but, uh, Tolkein doesn’t even tell, let alone show the ring being powerful. Why would Sauron of all people care about being invisible? Whatever it really does, we never see it, or even hear about it. Nice nod to Plato I guess, maybe also see the part where he absolutely shreds democracy, that part’s kind of more important.

    I do like how the book continues after the climax. Although I don’t care about the characters, because I find they deserved to lose, so it’s boring and I skipped more of that than I did the rest of the works. Also apparently ents exist because Tolkein thought Hamlet was too unimaginative, which I can get behind.

    Tolkein was a proper non-hypocritical Christian, meaning he was a Revolutionary. The high (Sauron, elves) will be brought low, and the low (hobbits) exalted.

I would also contend that Dwarves are portrayed it far to generous a light for any “Jew aware” “alt-right” European to accept Tolkiens portrayal as anything but a sugar coating of their perverted, depraved, sadistic and even genocidal history would demand.

    Since the topic is irritating speech habits that in large part result from having American kids educated by foreign-born or black teachers for whom standard American English is barely a second (even a third) language—and then having these bad habits reinforced, by osmosis, by Jewish trend-setters in the (((news and entertainment media))) who delightedly pick up those lowlife speech patterns—allow me to mention something that has driven me crazy for almost twenty years: the near-complete disappearance among people under 55 or so of the centuries-old pronunciation of the word the as if it were spelled thee when the precedes a word starting with a vowel. The result of this misguided, nonnative change is that millions of people now regularly use ugly glottal stops in our language, which till the day before yesterday had virtually none.

    Take the following sentence. In a spoken context, all too many people will fail to pronounce the the’s as thee’s and will instead make ugly clicking sounds more appropriate to Vietnamese or Squamish than to English. (The symbol “ʔ” is the phonetic character for a glottal stop.)

    Uptalk is the annoying habit of people using a higher pitch to close a sentence or phrase.

    Uptalkers put an upward inflection on the final word of a statement. In English, rising intonation indicates questions, so uptalk statements sound like questions.

    Vocal fry refers to sound created by a specific movement of the vocal folds. Normally, vocal folds rapidly open and close as air passes through them. However, if vocal folds close completely for brief periods before opening, the vibration causes a strange sound.

    Uptalk has been spreading like pandemic across the English speaking world, but where I noticed the most pronounced explosion of this nasty habit was from Australia during the Covid lock downs. Virtually every minister in every newscast became upticking blithering idiots. Check out this little press conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison:

    This conference is also loaded:

    Women started over using vocal fry about a decade ago. Apparently they think it makes them sound smarter and more intelligent.

    This is dubious at best. Tolkien was distinctly atypical in the Britain of his day because he was a practicing Roman Catholic—indeed, a devout one, as can be learned from the testimony of everyone who knew him, as well as from Humphrey Carpenter’s authorized biography. On the basis of the experience of Chesterton, Belloc, and many other pre–Vatican II Catholics—including my own parents, who were born in 1909 and 1913—the perfidy of the Jews was a regular theme of sermons at Sunday Mass and was not glossed over in intermediate and higher education at pre–World War II Catholic institutions.

    Being far-from-welcome minorities in both Britain and the USA in at least the first forty years of the twentieth century, Catholics learned to keep their mouth shut about (((who))) was doing what to whom. Still, from the shanty Irish to the Establishment-wannabee sellouts, a great many Catholics back then knew the score.

    He is being far too harsh on Tolkien. Yes he had his faults. He surrendered to Jews. He was an arrogant and clueless Englishman. He was a Catholic fool.

    But there is a reason his legacy is so beloved by white people. His soul longed for the myths of the Germanic people, and while he would never admit it, all his characters were developed on racial lines.

    The good guys:

    Hobbits: Englishmen.
    Gondorians: Germans.
    Rohan: Vikings

    Apart from the Jews it is clear where Tolkiens sensibilities lay when it comes to race. He could just not see past his Christian and Jewish Liberal upbringing, like so many boomers. George Lucas is a bit similar. Most of his heroes are Germanic looking whites, while the bad guys are some form of Jew.

    Grown White men should not be fantasizing about wizards and dwarfs. It’s all reality avoidance.

    The books were never that great and Elijah Wood was awful. Sauron was right to go after him. He has such a punchable face.

    I really don’t get those movies. They are mediocre sludge.

    Why do the Ukrainians use the Lord of the Rings story as their national mythos now? They call the Russians Orcs and themselves Shirelings.

    Evelyn Waugh understood the Jews well enough. Same type of Catholic as Tolkien. Same education and status. The Catholics in the UK are one of three things. Irish migrants, intellectual converts or aristocrats with recusant family histories. Like the Dukes of Norfolk. Highly placed in the court. The Dwarves don’t come off well in the Hobbit and are wiped out in the Fellowship.

    Smaug could also be a Jewish banker for all that.

    The real bigger thing has been built as Mecca’s Grand Mosque’s minaret skyscraper with a horned moon crescent atop.

    Yess, sister! Let the free market free those hobbit children from the authoritarian Shire & it’s uptight homophobic attitudes!

    The Dwarves were hardly portrayed as “eternal victims” in the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. They were instead portrayed as often meeting any doomed ends they did due to their own greed, hubris and unwillingness to work with the other races. The idea that pro Jewish propaganda played a part in Tolkien’s writing process is dumb beyond even the most lardbrained wignat’s “fit blame Jews peg in every square” imagining.

    Fleming was the head of an intelligence agency while Tolkein fought in the trenches, if that doesn’t tell you something then you just don’t want to hear it.
