“It’s hard not to think of Galadriel’s wistful lament when the One Ring is carried into Lothlórien:
‘Do you not see now wherefore your coming is to us as the footstep of Doom? For if you fail, then we are laid bare to the Enemy. Yet if you succeed, then our power is diminished, and Lothlórien will fade, and the tides of Time will sweep it away. We must depart into the West, or dwindle to a rustic folk of dell and cave, slowly to forget and to be forgotten.'”
Daniel Hannan, a British MP for stricter immigration controls, and to get rid of the European Union, quoted Galadriel to make a point about the doom of the EU, and how it is controlling all of the European countries taking away their national sovereignty.
