Guess I was just interested in fleur's take on the whole thing since he likes to talk about philosophy. I don't like the whole living as a beggar to prove some kind of philosophical point part but I do like the emphasis on simplicity.

Yeah, Diogenes is probably the prime example of a cynical philosopher and I love him, but he really went all the way with it. Cynicism was never super popular in Rome compared to other Greek philosophical schools but it did have a presence.

Gandalf was based on Odin and LoTRs has a lot of Norse pagan lore woven into it which is why neopagans get a hard-on for it.

It must be remembered that Tolkien was a linguist before he was an author, he spent a long time studying runes and the stories they told. But as has been mentioned already he was a devout Christian and that too colored his writings.
Fortunately his distaste for hard allegory made it possible to please both.

I sort of live by that one little Diogenes tidbit.
Where Plato came across him while he was washing vegetables and said
>You know, Diogenes, if you would pay court to Dionysius then you wouldn't have to wash vegetables.
to which Diogenes replied
>And if you would wash vegetables then you would not have to pay court to Dionysius.

Because it's true. Everyone seems to be bending over backwards to suck the big imperial cock in pursuit of some misguided pipe dream that there's going to be a place in the emperor's court for their sorry ass when you can just roll up your sleeves and endure some menial tasks and just live your own life just fine.

One of the core bits of classical cynicism is ridding oneself of false beliefs, and indulging in the whole "society" thing entails embracing a lot of unnatural things and "dubious" beliefs.

The old growth forests were completely cleared by the time any painting exists of them. Kind of makes you wonder just what the forests that inspired the Nibelungenlied actually looked like.

If I'm going to be honest I feel a little drained today. I had a lot of fun last night. The most I've had in a very long time. And I really appreciate it. I guess I've done such a good job avoiding the emotional boom and bust cycle that I'm not used to coming down like this.
