Sailer's Law Of Mass Arrowings Holds True In Amazon's Tolkien Prequel

From Amazon’s $700 million Tolkien series, The Rings of Power:

Holding your bow sideways isn’t as accurate.

Seriously, Tolkien’s masterpiece The Lord of the Rings is obviously inspired by Wagner’s hyper-masterpiece The Ring. Tolkien’s work is about northern Europeans, just like The Iliad is about southern Europeans, and Journey to the West is about Asians. Like Wagner’s, Tolkien’s work is awesome, but not diverse.

If you are a giant global corporation like Amazon, it’s a difficult conundrum that the world loves northern European artistry, but also is instructed to resent northern Europeans.
