Ok, i know this thread is old but i have some observations.
As we know, the books were heavily publicised and hailed as a saviour, getting children into reading, and then the film contract to follow, with ITS
heavy promotion. I have read and re-read the books, which i dont consider very well written but the plot ensnares me.
There is an 'evil' that braught destruction, mistrust and darkness over the comminity (Voldemort)
He was vanquished and went into hiding for years, growing stronger with a larger network of people under him.
He later appeared, hidden behind other people(death eaters) but once again spreading fear and death throughout the (magic) community.
Harry and the members of a secret soceity called the order of the phoenix all know that this evil is back, and all know that the corruption is
everywhere, namely the ministry of magic. The evil, Lord Voldemort, had people in every service, he had infiltrated the Ministry, and it was doing his
bidding, with a front of it being the already exhisting beneficial Ministry. Harry and members of the Order know of this and take measures, to go
'off-grid'. At Hogwarts, one of Voldemorts shills, 'Professor Umbridge' takes over, and slowly twists it to the agenda of those with more power
than her. The Ministry begins ruling by decree, which is a well known act of a hemorhagging government.
Obama has coincidentaly just started ordering by decree. If you read the books, you can read much itno what has been happening in the states lately.
