"Hunger Games" The Orwellian Theme Behind the Movie

"The techniques of brainwashing developed in totalitarian countries are routinely used in psychological conditioning programs imposed on American school children. These include emotional shock and desensitization... isolation from sources of support [parents], stripping away defenses... and inducing acceptance of alternative values..."[1] Thomas Sowell, PhD.

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith!" 1 Peter 5:8-9

I heard no laughter while watching The Hunger Games on opening day. Just sober silence. This teenage movie -- set in a totalitarian world that supposedly replaced a broken America -- shows the grim struggle for survival in a world without God, hope or meaning. The only "higher power" is a heartless government that supplies its own choice of artificial thrills and trials. And the people suffer.

The book behind the movie was published by the prominent Scholastic. It brought us the Harry Potter series and countless other books promoting witchcraft and the occult. By marketing its books through our education system, Scholastic may have done more to distort history, mythologize truth and promote moral and spiritual corruption among children than any other publisher.
