I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

That Sauron was only in it for himself, he did not intentionally do the world a favour. But the thought has occured to me that rather than been deadly enemies, had Sauron and the Numenoreans simply decided to divide the world up between them, there would be no power, other than the Valar, that could have opposed them. Or, if Sauron had been destroyed, say early in the Second Age, how could anyone have stood up to the strength of the Numenoreans?
