On the Hunger Games V

(Spoiler Alert!) In the end, the toppling of one tyrant meant the the rise of others. Though Katniss killed President Coin, the heretofore leader of District 13 and the rebellion, and aspiring dictator, “representative” rule will govern what’s left of Panem (North America) going forward. Suzanne Collins story seems to reveal her as a student of Oppenheimer, Nock, and Rothbard. I don’t know if that’s true, but it would not surprise me. Her portrayal of humanity, statism, slavery, oppression, war, corruption, hatred, fear, confusion, and mistrust are brilliant. And that’s today’s two cents.
