    I think Voldemort is supposed to be a symbol for many different things including perhaps a New World Order. But I think he's a range of evil including a representation of Hitler, the Devil, etc many things and evil people.

    The ministry of magic to me seems it's JK Rowling's views on the unfair justice system and she faced discrimination herself when she was a poor single mother.

    Order of the Phoenix is clearly about being against standardized testing.

    What comes to mind? Adjectives, adverbs, a nearly complete absence of quality imagery. Then, after the title page, things get worse.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

Most of the latter books were just fluff.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Nope - I'm not going to read a series written for children and try to find some deeper underlying political sub structure - entirely asinine.

    It's ok, I read everything, there is no deeper sub-structure.

    Lord of the Rings is a different story (no pun intended).
