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 (listen audio-book), 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 far 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 blood-sport "breads and circuses" (as in any "Empire") 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.



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. 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.

"Hunger Games"

...and Fourth-Turning America

It looks like I’m not the only one who sees parallels between the Hunger Games books and movie and The Fourth Turning.

Our good friend Neil Howe just made this post on his blog.

I always love to see the insights of the master.

He picked up things that I never even considered.
I highly recommend The Hunger Games and

The Fourth Turning to anyone who wants to better understand what will happen in the next 15 years.


So why has The Hunger Games broken so many box-office records in its first few weeks in theaters?


Sure, the trilogy was a huge YA reader hit before it became a movie. But the books weren’t exactly Tolkien, nor did they have the same celebrity status as the Harry Potter series.


And even if the books did generate a lot of buzz behind the movie, that just begs another question:

Why was the trilogy so popular to begin with?

I have no idea. But I do think there are several themes in the film that strike an obvious resonance with 4T America.

Theme One is the overwhelming imagery of the 1930s. In the film, we see images either of America’s dire want and deprivation - think of dirt-eating Appalachia before the TVA arrived - or we see images of National Socialism triumphant. On the one hand, scenes of semi-starved District 12 are deliberately filmed as a black-and-white evocation of rural America in the middle of the Great Depression.


Think of the Time Magazine’s cover picture for October 13, 2008: A stark photo of breadlines in the early 1930s.

On the other hand, the computer-assisted scenes of the Capitol of Panem look like Berlin as it might have been redesigned by Nazi architect Albert Speer. Fortunately, history did not allow him time to complete this task.


 He did a brilliant job, however, with the Nuremberg rallies, which look like Panem’s Capitol on a smaller scale. And what isn’t directly Nazi-inspired comes from Art Deco or Art Nouveau.

I’m certainly not the first one to point this out: See this article in the Atlantic for example or this very nice blog post. I’ve even seen a YouTube video pointing to the striking similarity between the Hunger Games Mockingjay pin and Herman Goering’s Luftwaffe badge:








I’ll show a couple of examples here, the most striking of which is the CGI movie image of “Avenue of the Tributes.”


The insignia for each district look disturbingly similar to badges handed out by the U.S. National Recovery Administration (NRA). Note btw the task assigned to District One: “Luxury.”


Hey, it’s a job and someone’s got to do it.


Why is this important?


Because the specter of National Socialism loomed large over America at the depths of the Great Depression. As government aggregated greater authority under FDR, many suggested (both on the populist left and the authoritarian right) that perhaps government should go further.


In 1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote the novel It Can’t Happen Here about a fascist take-over of the United States, which was popular enough to be turned into a stage play in 1936. In Lewis’ novel, it was not so much that large numbers of people really wanted a dictator.


It was just that no one any longer cared much for the liberal and democratic alternative.


Theme Two is the imagery of a vast gap or distance between the privileged and the subjected.


By most calculations, inequality by income in the United States (as measured by the Gini Coefficient) has recently reached the highest levels since the late-1920s and 1930s. In Hunger Games, the rich are hi-tech and garish. The poor are resilient and plain.


In the OWS era, the relevance is clear.


Theme Three is the imagery of a staged yet savage competition among the young for survival.


I think Hunger Games can be read as a metaphor for team-working and risk-averse Millennials entering a young-adult economy defined by survivalist Gen-Xers, who are accustomed to competing against each other in a no-holds-barred, winner-takes-all economy without safety nets. Gen-Xers know all about Survival Games.


They think nothing of working for businesses governed by the Jack Welch managerial philosophy - which is to fire X percent of your workers every year “pour encourager les autres.”


Life is a gigantic Las Vegas casino.

”May the odds be ever in your favor.”

How X can you get? If Millennials fear anything, it is this future.

How things have changed. When Boomers were young, William Golding wrote a much-discussed novel about kids killing each other that was quickly turned in a movie. It was called Lord of the Flies.


And why were the kids killing each other? Because they wanted to. Because they were accidentally separated from the adults who would otherwise have enforced order and restrained them.


Hunger Games turns the story entirely around. In this world, it’s the adults who deliberately stage the teen-on-teen gladiatorial contests. Hunger Games is by no means the first in this genre.


During the Gen-X youth era, we’ve seen novels and movies like The Long Walk (Stephen King) and Battle Royale (a ‘90s Japanese classic).


And how many Xer “reality shows” have followed this same basic model - with Donald Trump or Simon Cowell or some other middle-aging Boomer yelling “you’re fired” at a young person? The number is beyond counting.

If you’ve seen the film, then you recall the scene where the competition-trained blond jocks chase down and kill an unseen screaming victim. An image came to my mind: Karate Kid I (1984), where the Aryan Cobra Kai kids (dressed in skeleton uniforms) chase down and catch Daniel-san and would have beaten him to a pulp had not Mr. Miyagi intervened.


This enormously popular movie persuaded countless millions of young Gen-Xers to practice martial arts, buy a gun, or do just about anything to defend themselves in a friendless world.

But here’s what’s changing. In today’s new 4T era, what felt OK or normal for young Gen-Xers seems outrageous and unacceptable for young Millennials.


For a generation of kids so fussed-over and protected - now to be sent out with bowie knives and machetes to eviscerate each other from throat to gut? No, the line has to be drawn somewhere. And this is what adds a whole new edge (so to speak) to the movie.

I originally had a Theme Four in mind, which is the horrifying Oprah-style interviews of young victims about to be sent to their death. Here is a glimpse of modern American decadence that deserves fuller treatment. In the heyday of imperial Rome, gladiators once shouted “morituri te salutant!” to the clamoring coliseum crowds (we who are about to die salute you).


In Hunger Games, the contestants confess personal secrets like they were on Jimmy Fallon’s ever-nice late-night show.


The effect is truly chilling. But the hour is growing late...
