Suzanne Collins, author of ‘The Hunger Games’, lives in Sandy Hook, CT
There are rather eerie coincidences as new details emerge about the tragic mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. It turns out that Adam Lanza’s mother, Nancy, was a so-called prepper who believed the world economy would collapse and she would need guns and stock-piled food to defend her home and for long-time survival. According to new reports, Ms. Lanza, described as overly-protective of her emotionally disturbed son, purchased the high-powered guns which were used by her son to carry out the mass shootings, and she taught both of her sons how to shoot them.
Here’s where it gets more strange. Some Internet news reports have picked up on the fact that Suzanne Collins [above right], the author of "The Hunger Games," which was made into a hit movie, resides in the Sandy Hook village in Newtown, Connecticut where the mass shootings occurred. Collins is the daughter of a U.S. Air Force officer and is a graduate of Indiana University in Bloomington where she double-majored in drama and telecommunications. Here’s a glimpse of the movie version of "The Hunger Games":
The hit movie “The Hunger Games” takes place in a dystopian future where the poor and wretched masses live under the high tech tyranny of a wealthy elite. Is the movie depicting the kind of society the elite is trying to establish for the New World Order? We’ll look at characteristics of the world presented in “The Hunger Games” and how they relate to plans for a New World Order.
Pushed by a gigantic marketing campaign, The Hunger Games did not take long to become a world-wide sensation, especially among teenagers and young adults. Sometimes referred to as the new Twilight, The Hunger Games has similar components to the previous book-to-movie craze (i.e. a young girl torn between two guys) but takes place in a very different context.
Set in a dystopian future (why is the future always “dystopian”?), The Hunger Games paints a rather grim picture of the world of tomorrow, whether it be from a social, economical or political point of view. In short, it is a big-brotherish nightmare where a rich elite thrives on the backs of a starving population. Meanwhile, the perversity and voyeurism of mass media is taken to absurd levels and is used by the government as a glue to keep its unjust social order intact. Is The Hunger Games giving teenagers a glimpse of a not-too-distant future? It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see the elite are trying to take the world in that direction. Is the author Suzanne Collins communicating a strong anti-NWO message to the youth by showing its dangers or is it getting the youth used to the idea?
