The above picture is the One Ring which is said to be the focus of the main central plot of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord Of The Rings". This One Ring is familiar to all those who have read Tolkien's book or who happened to watch its film adaptation. The One Ring was intended to be the most powerful of all rings and possessing and wearing it gives the wearer power and dominion over other who wear the other Rings of Power. It is said to be a magic ring of invisibility. Will you destroy the One Ring in the pit of the volcanic Mount Doom? Or will you keep it for yourself to have power and dominion over others? Are you a J.R.R. Tolkien's fans? N.B. Information verified in Wiki Image source: lotr.wikia.com

I don't think it's all powerful as it was portrayed to be. It just made corrupted hideous looking beings and an invisibility mode that can still be affected by people if they can sense it. Remember the scene where Golem bites the ring off of Frodo even when he is invisible. So what's the use if you can be sensed. And even if it were powerful what good use can it be put to. It was just gonna corrupt people; so it was better to destroy it. (*_*)

@mandala100 I could see bringing in a bit of history for the readers but, all in all, I think Tom Bombadil should have been left out of that particular story. Or at the very least, his ability to control the ring should have been left out. Oh well. It is what it is.
I'm a Tolkien fan. If I were given a choice, I would embark the journey to destroy the Ring just like Frodo. The ring looks pretty useless in the movie series but book readers will understand the dangers behind having a Maia or rogue Elf drawing the full power of the Ring. In fact, I believe that Saruman or a rogue Gandalf would be able to become another Dark Lord strong enough to rival or defeat a Sauron at his peak. In conclusion, the Ring has to be destroyed as it will bring cycles of war and destruction in Middle Earth if left untouched.
