The Hobbit, LOTR and Anarchism

J.R.R. Tolkien expresses perfectly the values of anarchy in his books The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.-

“My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy (philosophically understood, meaning abolition of control not whiskered men with bombs) […] the most improper job of any man […] is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.” ― J. R. R. Tolkien (1892–1973), Letter to his son Christopher Tolkien (1943)
