In the video clip below, actor Donald Sutherland confirms that the Hunger Games is indeed an allegory pertaining to the United States.
In the Hunger game films, Sutherland plays the part of President Coriolanus Snow, a a native of the Capitol and the tyrannical President of Panem.
Did Sutherland just drop a bombshell on the military industrial complex? When asked what the movie was all about, this is what he said:
“If there’s any question as to what it’s an allegory for I will tell you.
It is the powers that be in the United States of America.
War is for profit. It’s not “to save the world for democracy” or “for king and country.”
It’s for the profit of the top 10%, and the young people who see this film must recognize that for the future ‘blind faith in their leaders,’ as Bruce Springsteen said, “will get you dead.”
