Here's where it gets more strange. Some Internet news reports have picked up on the fact that Suzanne Collins, the author of "The Hunger Games," which was made into a hit movie, resides in the Sandy Hook village in Newtown, Connecticut where the mass shootings occurred. Collins is the daughter of a U.S. Air Force officer and is a graduate of Indiana University in Bloomington where she double-majored in drama and telecommunications. Here's a glimpse of the movie version of "The Hunger Games":
The hit movie “The Hunger Games” takes place in a dystopian future where the poor and wretched masses live under the high tech tyranny of a wealthy elite. Is the movie depicting the kind of society the elite is trying to establish for the New World Order? We’ll look at characteristics of the world presented in “The Hunger Games” and how they relate to plans for a New World Order.
Pushed by a gigantic marketing campaign, The Hunger Games did not take long to become a world-wide sensation, especially among teenagers and young adults. Sometimes referred to as the new Twilight, The Hunger Games has similar components to the previous book-to-movie craze (i.e. a young girl torn between two guys) but takes place in a very different context.
According to InfoWars, the movie version includes a scene where a ritual sacrifice of children is carried out. The new territory envisioned in North America under a New World Order is divided into 12 districts. Two children are paired off from each district and fight each other until 23 are killed. Adam Lanza killed 20 children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Collins was named by Time magazine as one of the most influential people in 2010. Amazon.com declared Collins the best-selling Kindle author of all time in March, 2012. Collins' next book, "Year of the Jungle", is a children's book based on her childhood experience coping with her father's absence while serving in Vietnam.Set in a dystopian future (why is the future always “dystopian”?), The Hunger Games paints a rather grim picture of the world of tomorrow, whether it be from a social, economical or political point of view. In short, it is a big-brotherish nightmare where a rich elite thrives on the backs of a starving population. Meanwhile, the perversity and voyeurism of mass media is taken to absurd levels and is used by the government as a glue to keep its unjust social order intact. Is The Hunger Games giving teenagers a glimpse of a not-too-distant future? It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see the elite are trying to take the world in that direction. Is the author Suzanne Collins communicating a strong anti-NWO message to the youth by showing its dangers or is it getting the youth used to the idea? Let’s look at the fictional, yet possible, future world of The Hunger Games.
UPDATE: My friend and fellow blogger is a pretty good movie critic. I went back and read her review of The Hunger Games and she was spot on. Here's some of her comments:
Sadly, this disgustingly violent and mostly soulless and unentertaining movie is marketed to kids, as the natural evolution from popular “Young Adult” lit. And it logs in at a slow-paced, sluggish two-and-a-half hours of undue self-importance . . .I also learned that the famous children's book author Steven Kellogg, who wrote and illustrated such classics as "Jack and The Beanstalk", "The Three Little Pigs," "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," and The Pied Piper," is a former resident of Sandy Hook. Actor Anthony Edwards now owns the home Kellogg once owned in Sandy Hook. Kellogg offers quite a contrast in what passes as classical children's book authors today.
The story is more anti-capitalist left-wing bull-crap. It is a dystopian future and what used to be America is now called Panem. It’s divided into twelve districts of different types of working-class poor: farmers, coal miners, electrical workers, etc. They are not allowed to hunt for food, and, instead, the kids, aged twelve and up, must put an extra ticket with their name into a lottery, each time they want more food. Once a year, two names are drawn from each district: a male and a female, who must fight to the death–killing each other to survive and win–in a televised reality show in the Capital, a place filled with very rich, gaudy people in bright, clown-like clothing, make-up, and hairstyles. It’s sort of a modern day man-versus-man in the coliseum minus the culture and history, in this case mixed with a little bit of the most unreal Gloria Steinem/Betty Friedan feminist BS fantasy imaginable. The weak, nonsensical story is that because there was a violent revolution and war, the Hunger Games, as the contest is called, are held to remind the different districts of the cost of war and revolution . . .
But America is made up of a bunch of suckers and sheep, so many of them racing to see this movie, having bought online tickets months ago. They eagerly ingest and digest the swill served up to them, without thought or hesitation. The other night, actress Kristen Bell uttered the most airheaded and sad comment of all about the books from which the movie was made:
This is the piece of literature that in a hundred years we’ll look back on and it will be the best thing we’ve ever written.
Spoken like a true moron. But, then, as the popularity of this movie and the books behind it proves, we are a nation of morons.
