Hunger Games

I went to see the Hunger Games the day it came out in theaters. Aside from the violence and other aspects involved, it is full of principles that we have talked about in class about control. Here are a few thoughts:

  • What is the way control, in any mode, being enforced?
  • Who is being effected by it?
  • What are the motives behind the agency that is enforcing it?
  • Why is the particular form of control necessary?
Have you seen the movie? Many lessons are to be learned from the movie/book about the concept of control. In effort to prevent spoiling the story for you, in case you haven't seen it, I will not go into detail about the movie or story, itself.

But I would like to reiterate the importance of checks and balances. It is critical to have a pure system in place, whatever it may be, with the right motives, to effectively enforce any type of control.
