is from an article about Peter Thiel, a Silicon Valley hedge fund founder (who,
incidentally, was a character in The Social Network, where he was
played by Wallace Langham):
devoted J.R.R. Tolkien fan from an early age, Thiel is equally enamored with
Kirill Eskov's The Last Ringbearer, a retelling of The Lord of the
Rings in which Sauron is a beleaguered victim and the elves are bellicosely
bent on world domination. "Gandalf's the crazy person who wants to start a war,"
Thiel explains, "and Mordor is this technological civilization based on reason
and science. Outside of Mordor, it's all sort of mystical and environmental and
nothing works. Anyway, it's really clever."
