Loss of humanity and survival

The Hunger Games

The hunger games: The Hunger Games is a movie series, and also a book series, of a Dystopian world many years ahead. The Capital serves as the government and every year the capital hosts the hunger games. Which is a battle arena where 2 randomly selected candidates from each district get put into to fight to the death. This situation clearly states a oppression, loss of humanity, and survival theme. Firstly, the districts besides the capital are all in oppression. The food is very scarce and the living conditions are very poor.

The people who live in the districts are all under control of the government and are not allowed to leave. They also receive punishments for disobeying petty rules such as rations. Secondly, the loss in humanity can be found in making teenagers from around 8 years old to 20 years old fight each other until there is only one more person standing alive. Lastly, survival is shown through the main character Katniss and her struggle to survive. She hands on fights many other characters in the arena, she runs from rabid monkeys, and poisonous gas.
