 Finally the dam did not have to be destroyed immediately. The water-level could be gradually lowered. The catastrophic impact of dam destruction is also shown in the film. In the film, Queen Elsa had to use magical power to stop the flood. I think it is a metaphor of a political leader leading the effort of shoring up the levees, in the face of an imminent flooding. Dams are considered "​installations containing dangerous forces"​ under International humanitarian law due to the massive impact of a possible destruction on the civilian population and the environment [(https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Dam_failure)]. If the flooding from the dam destroyed Arendelle, Princess Anna would have committed war crime against her own people. Therefore I believe Princess Anna needs to study Engineering. ​ Finally the dam did not have to be destroyed immediately. The water-level could be gradually lowered.

-Finally Queen Elsa abdicated to live in the Enchanted Forest. I believe it is in reference of King Edward VIII, who later became Duke of Windsor after his abdication [(https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Edward_VIII)]. I do not think abdication was necessary for Queen Elsa, because the British Sovereign'​s full style and title is "​Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth,​ Defender of the Faith"Notably, Elizabeth II is also the Queen of Canada and Australia. I believe Queen Elsa should ​have ruled over both Enchanted Forest by using a Personal Union [(https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Personal_union#​United_Kingdom)]. She is obviously not very good at statecraft. I therefore think that she needs to study Politics.+Finally Queen Elsa abdicated to live in the Enchanted Forest.

 +Overall, I think Frozen 2 is a very educational film. It has so many metaphors and hidden messages. It is good for teaching children about politics and environmentalism
