Just an FYI for those not familiar with The Hunger Games, it is the first part of a Trilogy.
Reserve judgement until you complete Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
It is an ALL American story to the end.

Definition of FASCISM
1: often capitalized: a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control .
Adolf Hitler has been innacurately depicted as a conservative because he opposed the liberal ideology of Communism. In fact though, Hitler's ideology was nearly identical to Communism other than his beliefs that only people of certain ethnic background were worthy of being part of his world. Basically, Hitler needed to invent a bad guy to blame all of the woes of Germany on. That bad guy for Hitler was Jews. Obama's regime is attempting to make the old White guys the bad guys of the U.S. This may turn out to be more difficult than Obama and his kind believe because he only has a relatively few amount of old White guys who are standing with him. If the intellect and ethical level of Obama's White guys are such as Joe Biden demonstrates, then Obama is going to find fewer old White guys standing with him, no matter how liberal minded they are.
I don't really want a conservative or a liberal as president or in any government positions. Our political leaders should be able to lean which ever way is best for the American people overall depending on the current circumstances. I want a president who works for "ALL" Americans and does not constantly divide us into small groups that can be either defeated or controlled.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV

In reading an interview with Suzanne Collings, she was flipping back and forth between war coverage and a reality show.
The line between the two blurred and the Hunger Games was born.
I'm not sure what her political purpose in this story is, if there is, indeed one.
The Capitol is bad, but there is another government that you will be introduced to that is diametrically opposite and just as bad, IMO.
I suggest reading the books if you have the time, rather than watching the movies. There's a lot of context and subtlety that is lost.

The society in which this movie depicts North America living under seems to be exactly the kind of society that Obama and elitist Democrats envision.
Correction, the global banking elite envision this type of society for the whole world, and they're going to get it at this rate. They laugh when Americans fall into the 2 party scam.
When I think of a possible outcome to correcting the vast class distinctions between the masses and the elites in this society, I think of South Africa. While South African society was very unfair and unjust under British apartheid rule, it is really no better since the changes have been made because the system simply reversed which color of skin became the elitists and which color became the oppressed.
Not only is it no better, its far worse. Violence, rape, murder etc. are exploding there. Its on its way to being another completely ravaged African nation.America; first we fight for our freedom,
then we make laws to take it away.
