A played-out allegory? Perhaps. Regardless, the alternate narrative of elven oppression in the north pole remains a useful tool for communicating pointed social commentary. The best part, IMO:
- Understanding the different class interests in our society is essential if we are going to develop an effective strategy of resisting our exploitation. Armed with such an analysis we can explain to our brothers and sisters why recent statements about a few “bad apples” among the reindeer ring hollow. They remain “Our Enemies in Antlers” as long as they serve as a bulwark of power in our society.
