The Hunger
Games is a wildly popular new movie set in a dystopian future where
an all-powerful, high-tech centralized government rules over "districts"
of impoverished populations barely surviving in third-world conditions.
The film, based on the book of the same name by Suzanne Collins,
is important to understand because it depicts the very future that
the global elite are trying to create. In fact, much of what is
shown in The
Hunger Games
has already begun (see below).

The film is
set 74 years after a popular uprising that failed to overthrow a
corrupt, centralized federal government. As punishment for the attempted
uprising, the all-powerful government now requires each of 12 districts
to "volunteer" a young girl and boy each year to participate
in the Hunger Games – a bloodsport "breads and circuses"
event that serves as the opiate of the masses to distract society
from the fact that they are all slaves living under tyranny.

Spoiler
alert: This article reveals plot elements that may spoil the movie
for you if you haven’t yet seen it.

The central
themes of domination and control

The movie reflects
numerous central themes of government control over the masses, including:

  • Control
    over food: Residents of the 12 districts are not allowed to eat
    more food than they are allotted by the government. Being caught
    catching a squirrel for food results in severe punishment.

  • Control
    over land: The 12 districts are fenced off with high-voltage power
    lines, much like you might find in North Korea today. Most of
    the world is "conserved" as wild forest and grasslands,
    with humans only being allowed to populate confined regions where
    resources are sparse and starvation is a daily reality.
  • Control
    over the media: The government controls all media, and every broadcast
    is a staged theatrical event, completely fabricated by the government
    to serve the interests of the government itself. This, of course,
    is a reflection of present-day mainstream media which is completely
    whored out to corporate and political interests.
  • Control
    of technology: While the masses live in squalor, the techno-elite
    enjoy advanced hovercraft ships and live in gleaming high-tech
    cities. Advancements in medicine, 3D displays and weapons systems
    are available only to the centralized government, never to the
    People. Also in the film, RFID chips are used to track the game
    participants.
  • Control
    of DNA: Residents of the districts are identified through the
    taking of DNA blood samples. The government stores their DNA in
    a database in order to track and identify individuals. Insects
    are genetically engineered to serve as weapons, such as GMO wasps
    that cause wild hallucinations to those who are stung.
  • Control
    over life itself: The government toys with human life and seems
    to be amused by expressing heartless power over the masses. Their
    priorities are simultaneously focused on fashion, status and meaningless
    cuisine. In one scene, when the teenage girl (Katniss Everdeen)
    is trying to ask her mentor how she might survive the games, her
    elitists coordinator can only spout about how much she loves "chocolate
    truffles" and why they should all enjoy a round of desserts.

A parade
of fashion, makeup and style gone wild

The style and
fashion of the elite class who live in the high-tech cities seems
to be echoed right out of a modern-day parade. People are adorned
with bright, extravagant clothing and accessories, and they’re painted
up in outlandish makeup and hair color. They literally prance around
like frolicking maniacal members of royalty, and they experience
great joy from causing others to suffer.

The government-worshipping
elite class see themselves as intellectually superior to everyone
else, yet they lack any real-world skills. They also lack anything
resembling ethics, and they see nothing wrong with cheating or lying
their way to positions of ever greater power in their warped society.

Enslavement
through the illusion of hope

At the top
of the government, the leader played by Donald Sutherland is a Rockefeller-type
master of deception and human emotions. As he explains in the film,
the purpose of the Hunger Games is to keep people enslaved while
giving them "a little hope, but not too much." A little
hope keeps the enslaved masses in line, but too much hope might
actually make them think they have real power.

The threat
of government violence against the enslaved masses is carried out
by a class of enforcers who, in contrast to most other dystopian
films, are actually clothed in white, not black. They are the TSA
of the Hunger Games, and their job is to oppress the people, bash
in a few heads, and remind the masses who’s really in charge.

One can’t help
but notice in this film that the elite class of prancing government
worshipers is the logical extension of today’s irrational worship
of government as the savior of society. Where government is put
in charge of everything, the People are forever enslaved. And that
seems to be the goal of the government-worshippers in society today
who desire to make all people dependent on the government, hand
over all power to the government, and destroy individual human liberties
(and the Bill of Rights). It is no coincidence that the enslaved
masses in The Hunger Games are entirely disarmed and only
the government is allowed to own high-tech weaponry. This is a key
provision of the leftist "anti-gun" movement witnessed
in society today, which says that all guns should only be in the
hands of government, not individuals. Such a centralization of weaponry
in the hands of corrupt government, of course, only leads to tyranny,
as history repeatedly shows.

Human dignity

Most interesting
to me is the idea that government elitists have no ethics, no morals
and no basic dignity. In contrast, the only real expression of dignity
comes from the District 12 volunteer, Katniss Everdeen (the female
lead). She enjoys a closeness with nature and a respect for life.
When other participants in the Hunger Games are killed around her,
she shows them respect with a makeshift burial ceremony. She only
takes life as a last resort, yet she’s also quick to act out of
self defense, and she’s willing to take action to kill others if
they are truly intent on killing her.

This reflects
a fundamental human right to self defense. When we are attacked,
we have the right to hold our ground and return fire as her character
demonstrates several times throughout the film. By doing so, she
saves her life and ultimately shows the elitist government that
it cannot control her.

That point
comes out strongly at the end of the games, when she and her male
partner are the last two survivors. The elitists government commands
them to try to kill each other so that only one victor emerges.
But instead of giving in to this command, the two decide to eat
poison berries together and thus demonstrate to the global audience
watching the event (which is practically the entire population)
that the government shall not have the freedom to decide when we
live or die, and that even a slave can still decide when to end
their own life, independent from an oppressive government regime.

Unexpectedly,
the government suddenly halts the games before the two can eat the
berries, announcing them both as winners. This is obviously a last-ditch
effort to make sure no one expresses any power over their own lives
– not even the power to end your own life because such expression
of individual power would embarrass the government.

Throughout
the film (and the book), the government is obsessed with total oppression
of the people, denying them food and resources and carrying out
mind games against them that sap their courage and convince them
they have no personal power.

Actors,
writing, photography and screenplay

On the technical
side of things, the acting in this film is superb. The key female
character in the film is played by Jennifer
Lawrence
who delivers a convincing, heartwarming performance.
She demonstrates both strength and vulnerability with astounding
authenticity. This film succeeds largely because of her performance.

Woody Harrelson
also delivers a convincing performance, but that’s not surprising
given his reputation and experience as a performance professional.

Screenplay
is surprisingly solid, considering that this film is based on a
novel. It’s rare to see a novel translated well onto the screen,
but The Hunger Games pulls it off nicely with compelling
pacing and well-planned editing of the book’s detail.

I also want
to give props to two departments that typically don’t get the attention
they deserve: Costume design and sound design. In The Hunger
Games, both of these departments went far beyond the norm, showcasing
a masterful assembly of visual and auditory highlights that add
great depth to the on-screen artistry.

The Hunger
Games is coming true in America today

When watching
the Hunger Games, you can’t help but think about the recent
armed raids
on Rawesome Foods in California. There, armed government
thugs confiscated and destroyed $50,000 worth of food and poured
gallons of raw milk down the drain even while a food bank that could
have used all that food was right next door.

This destruction
of food carried out by the government of California is also routinely
carried out by the oppressive government in The Hunger Games.
One of the most powerful strategies for total government domination
is to deny people access to real food. That’s exactly what we’re
seeing today in the government’s attacks on raw milk, raw almonds
and other nutritious foods. In
Michigan, for example
, state bureaucrats there have announced
their plan to start destroying all the pig livestock of small, local
ranchers and arrest them as felons.

We also see
in society today a growing class of the ruling elite who express
total disdain for humanity, the natural world or anything resembling
dignity or ethics. This is perhaps best reflected in the philosophy
of Goldman Sachs, a financial investment giant so steeped in the
culture of greed that they reportedly think of their own customers
as total idiots to be viciously exploited for dishonest profit.

We also see
the key elements of tyranny and oppression reflected in the Obama
administration, where Obama himself signed the NDAA on New Year’s
Eve, 2011. This
law nullifies the Bill of Rights
and eliminates any right to
due process for Americans. It allows the government to arrest, detain,
interrogate and torture any person, for any reason, even if they
are never charged with a crime. It really is like something ripped
right out of a dystopian sci-fi film. The mass population, meanwhile,
seems to have no idea this has already been signed into law.

Similarly,
on
March 16 of this year
, President Obama signed into effect an
executive order that seizes control over all food resources across
the country, including food, seeds, livestock, farm equipment, food
processing facilities, and animal feed. This is written in clear
English, right in the order itself.

Once again,
virtually the entire U.S. population seems to have no idea that
this executive order was signed by Obama. In modern society, as
in The Hunger Games film, most people live in a world of
delusion, oblivious to the reality of how government is creepily
expanding into a totalitarian dictatorship with each passing day.

We are already
living in the early stages of The Hunger Games

The real kicker
in all this is that, to a great extent, we have already begun to
live in the early stages of a "Hunger Games" society.
Those who worship government and believe in total government power
over the People are pushing us in that direction every single day.

Here are other
signs of a Hunger Games type of government growing all around us:

  • The
    TSA reaching down your pants
    and calling it "security"
  • Staged
    false flag security events
    to keep people afraid
  • Janet
    Napolitano on giant TV screens at Wal-Mart

    warning everyone to spy on their neighbors and only trust government
  • Armed government
    raids on farms and food distribution centers
  • Corporate
    control over seeds and all intellectual property
  • The push
    to disarm the People and centralize all weapons in the hands of
    government
  • Mad science
    genetic engineering of crops and animals
  • The total
    theater of fabricated "humanitarian" causes (Kony 2012)
    which are really nothing more than a tactic to get public support
    for mass murder by governments
  • The total
    worshipping of sports figures and sports events by the dumbed-down
    masses who watch football, basketball and the UFC while having
    no clue whatsoever that their government is raping their future
    and destroying their liberties.

Big Government
will accelerate us into a Hunger Games dystopian future

Ask yourself:
What political position does all this sound like? End the Second
Amendment, put government in charge of all food, give up liberties
in the name of security, surrender individual power to state power…
ring a bell? It’s the platform of America’s political elite, whether
you’re talking about the left or the right. Both political parties
believe in big (and bigger) government, dis-empowered people, and
total government control over all resources (including land).

Only people
who believe in small, limited government can reverse this trend.
Ron Paul supporters, in other words. A small government is a safe
government, as any government that gets too big and too powerful
becomes a clear and present danger to the People.

Each day that
our government becomes larger and more powerful – which almost
automatically happens following staged terror events such as 9/11
– we are hurled ever close to a Hunger Games type of future
reality.

Let us hope
that We the People can stop the insanity of bad government and find
a way to restore liberty before this fictional movie called "The
Hunger Games" becomes far too real for comfort.
