"Tolkien's Philosophy: Why Doesn't Frodo Destroy the One Ring?"

Tim Hickson (Hello, Future Me) discusses “Tolkien’s Philosophy: Why Doesn’t Frodo Destroy the One Ring?

The refers to the scene 20 minutes before the end of “The Return of the Kings” (2003) when Frodo, on Mt. Doom and having outwitted Sauron, screams “The Ring is Mine!”

There is no wholly good person.  It takes evil to destroy it self, and the left is left to humility.

The ring is lost anyway.

Tim would certainly make a good high school English teacher.
He sells a book “Of Writing and WorldBuilding.”
