I HATE being poor! I'm not wearing that! I'm no good at Quidditch! Just exactly what IS up with Mr Ronald Weasley? Why would such a self-styled victim be part of the most powerful wizarding trio Hogwarts has ever seen?


In this episode I discuss the two great gifts Ron has to offer us on our own journeys to empowerment: his sheer ordinariness and the way he sheds his victim identity.


I love the way JK Rowling holds her ginger-haired hero up as a refreshing counterbalance to the cult of the talented unique genius. Unlike his two friends, Ron has no outstanding talent....but he still plays a vital role in the downfall of Voldemort. What better lesson for all of us?


But it is the way he exits his deeply ingrained victim identity that I find most profound about Ron. Discover what I mean in this episode, and its second part: Felix Felicis, out on Saturday.



We have two quotes from Ron himself. All I can say is this: mobile libraries have never been so hilarious.
