The ministry describes how there are always food shortages and wars in order to evoke fear among the citizens living under Big Brother’s rule. Norsefire and Big Brother use the media to manipulate the public’s views on life. Big brother changed the past in order to create a future that would benefit themselves and it’s no different in V for Vendetta. In reality hundreds of thousands of people were killed by Norsefire but the people believed it was a virus because they also tried to change the past. It seems the media is not only used as an instrument of fear but it can be used as a form of mind control, brainwashing the unsuspecting citizens.

To the people within each district and the capitol they die for a reasonable cause which is in fight for their district in the annual hunger games. From my own personal view they die for a ridiculous cause. The people of the capitol trick everyone into thinking that they are dying because fighting until only one person lives is an annual thing to prove their loyalty to the capitol unlike one entire district that was wiped out because they revolted against the capitol, district 13. b. There are extensive negative conditions in each district in my book. Most just go along with the district they
At the reaping, the mayor explains the origin of the Hunger Games. As a result of the rebellion of the Districts against the Capitol, formally named the Dark Days, the Hunger Games were invented; they made it clear to the citizens of the Districts that the Capitol had complete control. In the Games the tributes must fight to the death; this is a horrific blood sport for the entertainment of the Capitol, and to keep the Districts under control. Every year in Katniss’s home in District 12, preteens and teens between the ages of 12-18 must gather at the square for the reaping; this includes 16 year old Katniss, and her 12 year old sister Prim. This year, the odds were entirely in Prim’s favor, since she did not sign up for tesserae.
A woman should have the right to abort her baby for any reason that she feels necessary. The United States Constitution does not recognize a fetus as a living being, so women should have the right to make their own decision whether to keep their child. This is her personal private decision; it is between herself, her physician and her God. Beside her, neither one else nor the government should be involved in this. Abortion can be seen a tool to protect the woman, which is a living being.
This resulted in many deaths for the Capitol and the districts but in the end the Capitol defeated twelve of the districts and completely destroying the thirteenth. After the rebellious war the Capitol created The Hunger Games, where a boy and a girl ranging from the ages of are picked from each district and thrown into an arena for a fight till the death. So 24 kids go in the arena and only one comes out. The capitol created this game to show how much power they had over the districts and they had nothing they could do about it, and also for the entertainment. This event happened every year around the same time and basically treated as if it was a reality tv show.
Queen Elizabeth goes on to say that she does not plan on backing down from battle, “I do not desire to live to distrust my faithful and loving people.” Next, Queen Elizabeth tells her troops that they aren’t alone in this fight, “therefore I am come amongst you, as you see.” The Queen is assuring her troops that she plans on completely fulfilling her duties as a monarch. The Queen extends upon her desire to assist in combat by saying, “to live or die amongst you all; to lay down for my God, and for my kingdom, and my people, my honour and my blood, even in the dust.” The queen is attempting to dispel rumors that she is not an effective ruler because she is a woman. The Queen quickly refutes the fact that she cannot fight, because of her gender. She said “but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too.” In this statement, the queen instills yet more patriotism into her audience with an “If I could do it so could you!” type of attitude. Simultaneously, Queen Elizabeth reminds her people that she is the Queen, and cannot be intimidated.

The red acts as a flag foreshadowing the rape that she is to go through once she leaves Marlott. Another potent symbol in the novel is birds and how they affect Tess. She encounters birds on her journey to Flintcomb-Ash shortly after a hunting party tries to kill as many as possible. She finds many birds wounded and waiting for death as she wanders and attempts to put as many of them out of their misery as possible. “Tess’s first thought was to put the still-living birds out of their torture, and to this end with her own hands she broke the necks for as many as she could find,” (297).
