    I'm pretty sure that the broomsticks were one of the numerous homosexual symbols in the Harry Potter books. At least J.K. Rowling is on the right side of history about tranny rights.

    Towards the end [last paragraph -ed.] there was reference to Adam Smith, a well-known Scottish heretic. He wrote:

    [Page 223]
    During the ignorance and darkness of pagan superstition, mankind seem to have formed the ideas of their divinities with so little delicacy, that they ascribed to them, indiscriminately, all the passions of human nature, those not excepted which do the least honour to our species, such as lust, hunger, avarice, envy, revenge.

    Psalm 94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.


    Smith continues:
    They could not fail therefore, to ascribe to those beings, for the excellence of whose nature they still conceived the highest admiration, those sentiments and qualities which are the great ornaments of humanity, and which seem to raise it to a resemblance of divine perfection, the love of virtue and beneficence, and the abhorrence of vice and injustice. The man who was injured, called upon Jupiter to be witness of the wrong that was done to him

    God is not Jupiter and Christians know all about astrologism, especially where its author is concerned. Satan involves the astrologists' charts in the least of his spells. But whether Smith recommends Jupiter or not, clearly he's associating God with the ignorance and darkness of pagan superstition. The quotes from two lovely Psalms demonstrate this quite well I think and when we get Potterian economics mixed up with Jupiter and magic spells an author less benevolent than Adam Smith is very easy to identify.

    Satan will conceal this of course and yet when the younger reader looks up economics, checks out the Smith suggestion, this is what will be found.

    Some "international banker" types at Oxford (Daniel Levy and Avichai Snir, Potterian economics, Oxford Open Economics, 1, 2022) noticed a similar correlation in their recent analysis, albeit not as detailed as our own.

    What Harry Potter can (and can't) teach us about economics

    Consider some of the lessons we learn from Potterian economics: markets are not fair for transactions are zero sum; the political process is not transparent; markets encourage crony capitalism; capitalists want to enslave the proletariat; businessmen are deceptive and devious; wealthy people are mean and unethical; no interest is paid on deposits; there is a monopoly on information; power is concentrated; ignorance about foreigners is the norm; domestic producers are protected from foreign competition even if they are inefficient; paper checks are non-existent; creative thinking is rare; human capital does not accumulate; public employees have life-time job-security irrespective of their efficiency; the public sector is the default employer; downward social mobility is the norm; there is a constant class struggle.

    [R]esearchers also note that characters in the Harry Potter books do not seem to experience technological progress, except in the magical broomstick industry

    Worst of all, Mr. Spock and his son Dobby have ears that are clearly of the Devil. JK Rowling might as well have printed an open invitation for our children to worship Satan. And I do not approve of the way Col. Potter let the doctors at the MASH unit misbehave and carry on with the nurses. No wonder Harry turned out to have such loose morals. He even dated an oriental girl! Disgusting.

    I've always thought that Bernie Sanders looked a bit like Gollum. And the Wicked Witch of the West is very clearly modeled on Hillary Clinton. Not to mention the startlingly accurate portrayal of the Jews who run the wizard bank Gringotts. I know this author guy Jack Rowling is a libtard feminazi who loves negroes and hates Trump, but at least he also hates trannies and Jews. He's going to hell, but it's still a little funny.

    Harry Potter as a political allegory

    Hear me out, it involves time-travel, only a little bit. Because the Witch Rowling must have looked into the future and stolen the headlines from the news. After intensive historical study, using the methodology of Glenn Beck of Fox News, it became clear.

    Voldemort is Joe Biden.
    Severus Snape is Donald Trump.
    America is Harry Potter.
    Ron Weasley is Scotland or something.
    The dragon is 8.1% inflation under Joe Biden.
    Putin, putin... is one of the Lords or something.
    Etc. it all fits.

    After 5 scotch whiskies the connection just appeared in my vision.
Working...
