The Common Sense Show
I just watched the hottest movie in the country, which is the sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire. The movie is based upon the second in the trilogy of books authored by Suzanne Collins and the movie takes up where its predecessor left off.
The punishment of the common citizens from the mythical country of Panem continues in retaliation for the previous rebellion of the 12 districts against the Capitol City government. As a result, the Hunger Games were created in which one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18, from each district, are selected through an annual lottery to participate in the games. This is an event in which the participants (i.e. so-called “tributes”) must fight to the death, until only one remains alive. The previously failed rebellion against the tyrannical elite, occurred some 75 years earlier.
The Hopelessness of Agenda 21
Both movies, The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, do a marvelous job of introducing the sheeple in the movie-going audience to the absolute misery and tyranny which lies behind living in an Agenda 21 society. For example, there are 12 districts, in which the inhabitants live in absolute poverty and despair. Meanwhile, the elite live the life of luxury with none of the restrictions imposed on the citizens of the 12 forlorn districts. True to the nature of Agenda 21, the common people live in a squalor, while the elite bask in luxury, courtesy of the withheld technology that only the privileged has access to.
