Animal Farm Vs Hunger Games

Satisfactory Essays
Animal Farm written by George Orwell and the movie Hunger Games have very similar plots. Both the novel and movie include a government that uses propaganda, instills fear into its citizens, and manipulates the rules in order to achieve the outcome they desire. For example, in Animal Farm, when the rebellion takes place and Napoleon takes control he consistently tampers with the 7 commandments without any other animals noticing for the good of his own interest. This occurs in a similar way in Hunger Games when the head government and operators of the games changed the rule to two people can win if they are from the same district. Ironically, the capital decides to change the rule to only one participant can win when Katniss and Peeta, both from district 12, are the only people left. In Animal Farm, Napoleon instills fear into the other animals by controlling the dogs and using them as force, similarly to the way Mr. Jones used them. If any animal was found to be trying to rebel or not do what they were told, Napoleon would have them executed in front of the other animals to prove to any of his doubters that he is in control. The government that controls the Hunger Games uses the same tactics that Napoleon uses in Animal Farm: If citizens do not follow the rules put in place than they will not be fed. In conclusion, although Animal Farm and Hunger Games take place in total opposite time periods, their plots are very similar in how the government uses propaganda, instills fear into its citizens, and manipulates the rules in order to achieve the outcome they
