"In Vancouver, cop-sympathetic gay and trans people attempt to provide a logic of localism, which posits that the problems of police violence happen elsewhere, most notably down south in the US or out east in Toronto, but not in our own backyard. Such claims erase and minimize police violence on Coast Salish territories, including the recent murder of Phuong Na (Tony) Du and brutalization of Solomon Akintoye, and the ongoing violence and incarceration of Indigenous people and other low-income residents of the Downtown Eastside."
@DissidentKitty the one ring is the embodiment of ultimate power, the dwarves, elves and men are lived in hierarchical societies where power was instilled in a few, so Sauron needed only to place himself at the top of the hierarchies they'd already constructed for themselves for him to dominate most of Middle Earth.
To contrast, the hobbits live in an anarchistic society where there is no hierarchical authority, hence no few hobbits at the top to pass those rings onto. Sauron, like when any hierarchical empire discovers an anarchic society, would have no idea how to deal with that.
Dwarves, elves and men all desire power, hobbits only desire chill.
This is why hobbits make such good ring bearers, because they have no such desire to use this ultimate power. Men, elves and dwarves all quickly succomb to the all-corrupting lure of that power, but Frodo literally forgot about the one ring for decades in the first book.
