Donald Sutherland, the actor who plays President Coriolanus Snow, a totalitarian dictator in the hit movie The Hunger Games just explained in no uncertain terms what the movie is about.
"...If thereís any question as to what itís an allegory for I will tell you.Having watched the films, there's no question. The thirteen districts allude to the thirteen colonies, now the United States, while the capital run by a tyrannical dictator represents the Federal government. The films are a stirring rebuke of totalitarianism and how governments control their citizens through fear.
Sutherland is dead wrong though when he says the "top %10" benefit from war, it's more like the top .1%, which is the few hundred corporations who actually get the war contracts and the few hundred politicians who get more power and get to pose as everyone's protectors. Nonetheless, the idea the US' wars were to "save the world for democracy" is certainly bullsh*t.
