This is a riot:

Scroll down until you find it. Be sure to read part one first.


An excerpt from the "Unused Audio Commentary for FOTR by Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky":


Zinn: Now Frodo, son of Drogo, agrees to take the ring to Mount Doom. Something tells me that no one in Mordor calls it Mount Doom.


Chomsky: And everyone baits Frodo into this. "You are our agent, going on a suicide mission. You have to do it for the Motherland."


Zinn: So is Frodo the Mohammed Atta figure in this story?


Chomsky: He's a fanatical true believer. And crazy. Obviously, totally insane.


Zinn: And listen to what Aragorn tells Frodo: "You have my sword."


Chomsky: So militaristic.


Zinn: Notice that no one says, "You have my diplomatic skills." I think the only real diplomat of Middle Earth is Gollum. He's the only one who makes any meaningful, cross-cultural exchange with any of these people. Being a torture victim at the hand of the Orcs, and his attempted strangulation of the Hobbits.

That's hilarious.


Peter Jackson should include that as a bonus feature on the next edition FOTR dvd.:D
