Slaying The Dragon

The British writer G.K. Chesterton once wrote:

Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

i have been pondering this quote recently as i rework my manuscript. If we are going to slay the dragon of pornography addiction, it will require thinking about our lives in the manner Chesterton suggests here. The dragon does exist, but more importantly it can be beaten. To do so requires thinking of our lives mythically; we are WarriorPoets in a battle that has all the import of Frodo returning the Ring to Mordor.
