Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix 411

The Order of the Phoenix brings Harry Potter back for his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but life isn't that easy for the boy who survived The Goblet of Fire. The evil Voldemort is back, the Ministry of Magic peeps are being a bunch of jerks, everyone thinks Harry's crazy, Hogwarts' Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, isn't talking and there are enemies everywhere. It's not easy being a 15 year-old kid wizard! It's a good thing Harry Potter can always rely on Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and the rest of the Gryffindors - or can he?

Good News About the Order of the Phoenix

There are a few things that make Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix cool. The first is that it's a 700-page look into Harry Potter's magical world so you get to explore more of it than ever. The second cool thing is that Harry Potter and his friends are starting to date. Also, Harry gets angry a lot, so he gets together with Hermione and Ron and starts kicking butt. It's cool to see these three putting the magic they've learned (especially Hermione!) to good use. They even start a secret society!

Bad News About the Order of the Phoenix

The biggest bummer about Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the totally lame death of a major character. It's a major change to Harry Potter's life and it happens almost by accident. It should've happened way differently, if at all.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Final Word

If you're a Harry Potter fan, the Order of the Phoenix is a must-read book. If you're new to the series, it's a good book that'll keep you flippin' pages, but you should pick up the rest of the Harry Potter books and read 'em in order.

Unless you’re drawing out the animal’s death, wasting the potential resources it offers, or it’s an endangered species. Like with white tail deer, they’re already over populated, culling the population a little would help the ecosystem more than it would harm it. Just have respect for the life of the animal. Why isn’t the killing of the animal the issue for you? You say “have respect for the life of the animal” but you can’t do that while simultaneously killing said animal. If someone thinks it’s ok to kill the animal, they must have a difference between the animal and a human that justifies the killing. And if the difference was applied to a human, they must also accept killing them, otherwise it’s a contradiction. With all due respect, I believe it is possible. When I say "have respect for the life of the animal," I mean you should respect the fact that you are potentially taking a life, and that action should be justified. The killing of an animal isn't an issue for me if it is justified and absolutely necessary.  And yes, there is a difference between animals and humans. While we too are animals, we are significantly more developed intellectually and biologically in comparison to the majority of other species. This is a fact, and it's why many of us are so comfortable with killing wild animals-we feel disconnected to them except in certain cases, such as species like dolphins, apes, horses, and dogs. Does that mean we should value the lives of animals any less? No. But while animals are by nature more primal, that doesn't negate the fact that if they have proven to be a legitimate threat to the ecosystem and/or society, there shouldn't be an issue with killing them (ex. rabid animals beyond help). This isn't solely limited to animals either, you can see it in our own human society in many ways. For instance, our society executes people who have committed atrocities of the highest level, but we still value human life.

    Hi! If you're reading this, could you please type in: photo:6446529 but add [ to the beginning and ] to the end (no spaces)? Thank you! This is an image embed test, if you're curious (seeing if anyone can use images that I upload around the forums) not sure where this went, so I put it in general :P
