All around us we can see the destruction of our world, the destruction of the 'West'. Remember the great speech given by Aragorn before the Gates of Mordor, when he mentioned that this was not the end of the West? Well, it was not, because this happened at the end of the Third Age, and we today are at the end of the Fourth Age, when it clearly is the end of the West. This is the end of what we call 'Western Civilisation' and such an ending will come through disorder and chaos - the world will be plunged into the Primordial Chaos. Lord of the Rings was archetypal myth, that which is timeless and played out in the past-present-future, and not just at one point of time. The world is today being plunged into anarchy.
The Lord of the Rings came at the turn of the new millennium as a herald of what was coming; we can see in this the recurring of the archetypal myth of the Final Battle. Indeed, in the Orcs we see the Forces of Chaos, in fact we can see elements of this in the Red Mob that is today employed against anyone who opposes the Old Order. There are not only Orcs but also races of men, what we today refer to as the White Traitors who have betrayed their Folk, their Gods and their own Ancestors. The hatred of the Orcs is reflected in the hatred of the Red Mob - a seething hatred against anyone who is decent and right. The hatred of the underdog and the low-life. A seething hatred against anything that is noble and truthful - and anything that is White.
