Donald Sutherland 42-second video: Hunger Games is allegory to warn young people: ‘blind faith in US leaders gets you dead’

hat tips: MarkAlzano, Zen Gardener

The Hunger Games film series is popular because its message resonates: psychopathic .01% “leaders” staging children to kill each other with Orwellian rhetoric that such child deaths “bring peace” to society must be resisted. The richest sector uses 90% of the population as work animals they keep in poverty, under surveillance, and always under armed guards. Almost all of the richest 10% in the capital have no idea of the brutal conditions enforced upon everyone outside the capital.

Donald Sutherland plays the .01% “leader,” President Snow, who praises the annual child sacrifices as necessary. In this 42-second video, Sutherland is clear about the message of The Hunger Games:

  • “It is the ‘powers that be’ in the United States of America” that President Snow’s unlawful Orwellian oligarchy represents.
  • “War is for profit. It’s not to ‘save the world for democracy,’… no, bullshit. It’s for the profit.”
  • “The young people who will see this film must recognize… that blind faith in their leaders will get you dead.”

Mr. Sutherland is correct, as the facts show about US .01% crimes:

These crimes annually cost millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted, with recent history continuing literal centuries of US lie-began Wars of Aggression that involved your families in two horrific previous global wars.

We the People have the power to end our real “Hunger Games” whenever we wish: Speak the simple facts that these .01% policies are not legal, all military are trained to refuse such War Crimes and arrest those who issue such illegal orders, and join your voice with those demanding arrests.

We’re an Emperor’s New Clothes moment from victory.
