It's ok that Frodo failed!
Debate drama aside, I just wanted to touch on the topic of today's debate--whether or not Frodo failed. I just wanted to say, that I'm more inclined to believe that Frodo was not capable of destroying the Ring and that he needed all the help he could get. I like that he isn't able to throw it in the mountain in the end. Had he been able to, The Lord of the Rings would not be the amazing quest story that it is. There has to be some sort of change in the protagonist, for better or for worse. Frodo's corruption at Mount Doom shows Frodo's change and is what causes him to leave Middle-earth.
