The theme of child sacrifice in the supposed name of acting for the common good of society that is an integral (even central) part of the Hunger Games trilogy has undeniable parallels to the sad and violent act of abortion.
(More to come on this issue.)
And don’t anyone dare think or insinuate that I am being tasteless by including the graphic picture of an aborted child. If you support abortion rights, you support this being legal, and you must not turn a blind eye to the reality of it. You should know exactly what it is you are saying women should have a right to. If you cannot bear the sight or thought of this (which I hope you can’t!), then it’s high time you change your stance on the issue.
What a fantastic book/ movie!
Will write more soon.
This one’s alright.
Most people think the first book is best,
but I actually quite like “Catching Fire” myself.
A mock trial is a rehearsed or imitation trial in which young people may gain experience about the the legal system. This is one of the few usages of the word mock that does not connote unkindness or condescension; instead it simply means that a trial is simulated.
And [there were] people… in the attitude of mocking and pointing their fingers towards those who had come and were partaking of the fruit.
-1st Nephi 8:27*
Don’t go mocking
when you’re talking!
*This is an important scene from Lehi’s dream in the Book of Mormon. It describes people making fun of those who decided to partake of the fruit of the tree of life. Read an analysis of this glorious vision here. And here is yet another explanation laid out in simpler terms that even a young child could comprehend.
Inspiration, Creation, Promotion
and still I deeply love “The Hunger Games.”
More to come on these ideas.
Look at my title! Worse than the National Enquirer, I’d say.
(Cannot WAIT to see this:)
Oh, and know who else is on fire?
Not literally though, please 🙂 Just wanted to clear that up…
