Okay so Harry Potter fans who aren’t British won’t get that Dolores Umbridge is a mock of the right-wing former 80’s Prime-minister Margaret Thatcher. The evil take over of the “Ministry of Magic” is meant to represent a Conservative government (the Conservatives are Britians major center-right wing party).
J.K. Rowling is a proud and vocal socialist and long time supporter/ donor of the Labour party (Britain’s major Center-Left party). Basically Harry and the gang are revolutionaries fighting back against the power hungry darkness, beating back injustice in the name of a free society!
Now I know alot of (not all) Americans don’t understand or have been manipulated by their God awful media (and I mean that sincerely, not to be rude, it’s terrible how your media behaves). I know alot of you think Socialism is the same as State- Communism or Fascism but it’s not. It’s about shared power, power to the workers and the people and it’s about a fair and equal society.
But don’t trust me, some British kid you’ve never met, trust a literary genius J.K. Rowling! (Also on a side note J.K. Rowling was a single mom living off government benefits because she couldn’t get a job and afford to look after her baby. We must give everyone a chance, look what she did with that help!)
You know when you have these feelings for someone and over the years you keep getting little chances to tell them, you know that it might just happen if you fucking speak up. But then you can’t or you don’t know how and they end up again with someone else who will be there till’ the next time you get that chance. I can never have the guts to do it and whenever that window of opportunity comes my heart and chest just feel like they’re getting weaker and weaker as the the window closes and she moves on again.
