and the Order of the Phoenix
By J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling is the fifth book in the Harry Potter series. This book begins with Harry and his cousin Dudley being attacked by Dementors. Harry uses magic spells to fight them off and is sent for a disciplinary hearing at the Ministry of Magic.
The Highly Sensitive People in the Ministry
Professor Dumbledore re-forms the Order of the Phoenix when he learns from Harry, at the end of The Goblet of Fire, that Lord Voldemort has returned. Despite Harry’s insistence that he is telling the truth about the Dark Magic Wizard’s return and the Dementor attack, the Ministry of Magic refuses to believe him. Harry’s personal values are called into question and he is made out to be a child making up horror stories.
Mind Control of the Masses
In an attempt to undermine the credibility of both Professor Dumbledore and Harry, the Ministry releases it’s own version of the truth. The Ministry goes so far as to appoint Dolores Umbridge, one of their own, to take control of the school and how the children learn magic. Dolores Umbridge goes on to completely dominate Hogwarts School of Magic.
For the Tropic of Freedom Books Finders Keepers:
There were two things in Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix that really stood out for me:
The first was how fear can drive us to lose all common sense. We find ourselves doing things we never thought ourselves capable of. It can show sides of us that we never knew existed. Sometimes, this can be a good thing, like in the case of Harry. Sometimes, this can be a bad thing, like in the case of Cornelius Fudge.
Look at a situation, where you found yourself losing all common sense because you were so driven by your fear. What happened?
Remember, fear is a trick of the negative ego. It can drive all common sense out of you.
The second is what the Ministry of Magic that stems from fear.
How does what they do to avoid their fear, eventually bring about that which they are afraid of most?
