The books aren"t just about a boy wizard dealing with teen angst and the fact that an uber-powerful, Psychopathic bad guy is trying to kill him. J. K Rowling"s magical wizarding world is a painfully beautiful reflection of our own.

Mudbloods and Prejudice

The depiction of "mudbloods" (wizards who are born of muggle parents) acts as a simple but profound mirror to every kind of prejudice in the modern world. Voldemort"s obsession with killing his own muggle father and the pedestal upon which he places "pure-blood", Speaks to racism, Violence and power (and the ever-present connection between the three).

Mudblood

Ministry of Magic and the Workplace

Harry"s first visit to the Ministry of Magic paints an enchanting picture of the workforce " memo"s flying to their recipients, Workers transported to their office through a fireplace, A giant gold fountain in the atrium and a "Department of Mysteries" #livingthedream.

Magical Government

The deeper layers of Rowling"s magical government, However, Reveal the often ineffective and self-serving qualities of our own governing bodies.

A perfect example comes in the penultimate chapter of The Goblet Of Fire, "The Parting Of The Ways", In which the head of the Ministry, Cornelius Fudge, Refuses to believe that Voldemort has returned, Choosing to act on his own fear rather than in the best interests of the wizards he serves.

Harry Potter might have some deeper meanings, But for entertainment purposes (the true purpose of movies and books) it's horrible.

Strange Story Plots?
All of the books in the Rowling's Harry Potter series consist of him fighting Voldemort and almost always losing. He somehow always survives and ends up killing Voldemort at the end. How does he kill Voldemort though? Both professional wizards and witches try to kill him, But end up being so scared of him, They dare not say his name. But a random kid who just came out of school could kill him. Even in the Sorcerers Stone, Harry faced Voldemort, Yet survived, Even though he was only a teenager.

Where's All the Teaching?

Even though the book is staged in a school, There is barely any teaching scenes, And of those scenes, They often consist of Harry or another student being the target of some random teacher.
