This issue has been addressed. That's why I find it so frustrating that HM keeps starting new threads on this same topic.

They are different topics. I made two threads...one about the dangers of fantasy stories involving certain elements and this thread which goes into a narrowly focused discussion on a linguistic and cultural issue (the "wizard" archetype). You are the one who jumps in and starts discussing other things.

All you bring up is Harry Potter. This thread isn't about Harry Potter any more than it is about The Wizard of Oz. I have not made any thread or postings defending the morality of The Lord of the Rings either. I have pointed out differences between the written works involved when they use common words though.
