hunger games society - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
In this hunger games society the only way you can put the odds in your favour is to hobble everyone else whilst looking noble and respectable. That's social darwinism. The only way out of the arena is love, sharing and caring - what was it that guy Jesus was on about?
This is a hunger games society from the cradle to the grave. Why did you think parenting was so competitive? What are private schools there for? What happens if you fail to compete? Competition is all about improving your odds. At each level of education there is a cull. Make the cut and you stand a chance of living in victory village.
If the price of non-competition can be death, if being an ally to the disadvantaged comes with a price - you are living in a hunger games society - also known as social darwinism and a direct result of the money-nexus.
A society where "at risk youth" is even a phrase is a "hunger games" society.
Satan: Thank you, thank you, for installing a socially darwinistic world. The creator may have made the world, yet I have been the curator of this hell, of your "hunger games society." I'm such a fan, truly. The suffering is immense and soon vast swathes of humanity will be in a living hell via pollution and environmental degradation. Creation has never been so damaged. Pain is everywhere. Stress, greed, envy have never been so successful. So thank you, thank you. I haven't laughed so hard since I destroyed some other planet you've never heard of... I guess no-one will ever hear of Earth either... but I'll treasure your destruction, every scream, every murder, every cry of "why me?" The pleasure has been all mine.
