Lord of the Rings is trash

Lots of published novelists make broad claims about the way fiction should be (eg. all villains should have at least one redeeming trait), realize that Lord of the Rings doesn't meet that criterion, and then make up some stupid exception for it (eg. "but that was then, and this is now" - I've seen that verbatim!). I'm sick of the unanimous praise for this story. Here are the reasons why it sucks:

Power doesn't corrupt you

Strawman evil

Glorification

Why you should be an anarchist

Magic systems
