or on any forum for that matter. It's just a matter of decent courtesy and good manners.

And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

Whoa - what brought that on?? We were just discussing the Harry Potter movie? Our opinion of it is shaped by our faith (or lack there of)... you're welcome to comment on the subject, but I don't think ranting against people who believe different from you is called for on this forum topic.

Ignore behan.

He's been ranting like that is all sorts of forums. At least one moderator has banned him. Hopefully. he will just fade away.

Hagrid, who was expelled from Hogwarts for no good reason must have wished to have the choice to return to school many times. But he was condemned to be the groundskeeper forever with no chance to be a wizard.

I'm glad this Behan person has been banned. Thanks to all you moderators who keep an eye out for folks like that!

Now back to the Potter topic:

Hagrid was indeed expelled for no good reason, so its nice when he gets promoted to the position of professor for the Magical Creatures class, isn't it! I think the hippogriff was absolutely perfect in this most recent movie... but on the other hand, the werewolf wasn't too cool. It looked more like a giant chihuahua to me!

I guess I prefer werewolves along the lines of American Werewolf in London or even the one in Van Helsing.

biggrin.gif It certainly was a lucky break that the outcast Hagrid received a better position as a Professor, but I see that as a chance happening not the result of Hagrid's choices.

Too often injustices are glossed over by phrases like the original quote. We cannot escape from the facts of our environment and our training no matter how well made our choices are.

Throw a rock at a pack of dogs, the one who yelps is the one you hit. Old Jewish proverb.

The choices we make determine who we are. In Hagrid's case circumstance seems to throw some hard knocks his way, yet he can always be counted on to act honorably. At first glance it seems unfair that Hagrid was expelled from Hogwarts, but what would the wizard world think of a half giant full wizard? Could Hagrid then been able to travel on his secret mission to the giants without attracting too much attention?

Hagrid could have harbored bitter resentment at his unfair treatment but instead chose to serve as best as he could in a small way. Hagrid would be the first to say that he never really helps much, but it was Hagrid who picked up Harry when he was the boy who lived. I think Hagrid will have a great part to the good int the future books.

"If liberty and equality, as is thought by some, are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in government to the utmost."
Aristotle
If people are to be treated fairly they must have a voice in the administration of the institution, Hogwarts School for Wizards and Witches seems to be benevolent dictatorship. The example of the failure to adequately compensate Hagrid and also the failure to protect him from the abusive treatment of being expelled is an example of the consequences to powerless people, a minority in this case, half giant/ half wizard.

When I see Harry Potter's Aunt and Uncle snear at him being a warlock, I think of the prejudices people have toward each other.....silly they do when you really think about it. Poor Harry, you have to love such a innocent.

The major theme of the books seems to be overcoming prejudice. First the prejudice against intelligence (witchcraft) at Harry's foster home. Then the mixed and non-witch prejudices. That seems to imitate racism.

I really hate the way the Aunt and Uncle dislike Harry because he has talents they don't have. yes, predjudices are a good way to describe it!

Prejudice is difficult to overcome. If they were never taught the world would be a better place for everyone.
