US society is the real Hunger Games, the movie gave us a peak into how media is manipulated to control the masses, how they isolate the districts (people) from each other and how they use fear to control everyone. In the movie, each district has to pay tribute and simply living as a part of the US is paying tribute. Parents offer their children as tribute by sending them to be trained in schools by the government, committing to work jobs and pay taxes for the entirety of their adulthood and giving up on their dreams to live the “American Dream.” In the movie, District 1 includes the wealthy, famous and powerful, we might call them the 1 percent. These are the people who decide policy, entertain the people and control the resources. The entertainers are a major key because they keep the people subdued, distracted and sell the lies and agenda of the “elite”. (They are not the elite except in the society they have created which people agree to be a part. They struggle the most to remember and honor their spiritual connection to everything and everyone.)
Celebrities are crucial to maintaining an oppressive system with little push back because they keep the people distracted and can push agendas of the system under the guise of their persona. Gun control and gun laws have been addressed by many celebrities especially around the time legislation was being created. They are used to plant ideas in the people’s minds and link with people emotionally because many feel they know and can trust celebrities just from the familiarity of their work. No one ever considers their public persona is also a part of their “work.” If they can get everyone to pull for gun legislation based on celebrity opinion then no one will really read the legislation or think about the long-term effects of it. They also strive to make the people envy celebrities by parading them around in expensive clothes, cars & jewelry. They create award shows especially to feed off the energy of the masses, instill programming and push propaganda. Millions tune in and the US has become so good at it that they pull an audience worldwide. The recent Emmy’s is a great example where one black celebrity, Jennifer Lewis, wore a Nike outfit in support of Colin Kaepernick. Look deeper and see this is a market ploy for Nike, a political ploy for controlling the anger and dissension of black people and a distraction to give people something to talk about as I’m sure it will be a topic on most of the major talk shows on television and radio.
In the Hunger Games, they lie and spin events to serve their agenda and to control the perception of the people. The general public did not know that District 13 existed and was the home of the uprising, they were told District 13 was destroyed. Another time they reported Katniss and Peeta’s defiance by agreeing to both eat poison berries to keep the Games from having a winner as a love story although the Chancellor knew the truth. The chancellor also knew the people loved Katniss so he attempted to control her to gain control of those who would follow her into rebellion. They also used the media to spread propaganda of each district needing to do their part for the wellbeing of everyone instead of calling the districts concentration camps as they clearly were. In the US, the media is used in the same way. The same stories are shared and others are not covered and the pictures from the recent Hurricane show they lie and stage events to control people’s perception. Let’s look at the coverage Colin Kaepernick received for kneeling when others have not been standing for a long time. So what if Nike, NFL & the military conspired together to push an agenda to serve them all? Is it that farfetched? The NFL ratings get a boost as people want to tune in to see who is kneeling. Military enrollment and patriotism improve and Nike brands the face of black justice as their own. Now wearing Nike is a political statement and viewed as social activism in the era of hashtag and social media activism. Nike just gave wearing their clothing a deeper meaning. We must acknowledge and understand how media is used to control the masses.
The masses are being manipulated and living in the Hunger Games without even knowing it. They are being marched to their own demise. The general public will continued to be looted for everything they have. The US will continue to extract resources from them by demanding they work more for less money, downsize jobs by automating them and using prison labor (the new slavery) along with poisoning the food, air and water to generate wealth through healthcare. US citizens are seen as HUMAN RESOURCES and as history and current events show, the US power structure will use resources without regard to any damage it may cause. They don't care about anyone unless it is making money or increasing their control. US society will continue to spiral into hell taking the people with it.
UNPLUG! Nothing in mainstream media will free your mind, body or spirit, it is created to control you for their agenda. Once we stop buying into the bullshit and the system they created, we can begin to build our own. Community building is the call to action. Not the abstract community building we hear about on social media but actually community building. This means having our own communities with our own system, controlling our own resources and instilling our own values. This is the only way to protect ourselves from outside threats. The US was designed to be the Hunger Games. It was created to keep a few empowered off the backs of the masses and media and celebrities are vital tools to continue the system. This is why the celebrities and sports figures are paid so much, they are investments and they make back their money off of them tenfold. They are able to control public opinion about everything through media and celebrities because people buy into it. Most don’t understand the power of social programming and the importance of culture and this is used against the people every day. It’s time to wake up. What are we building?
