Just How Bad Can Living under a Totalitarian Government Be? Does the government control everything? Maybe not as much in Canada, however in other societies like Nazi Germany and even in Panem from the book “The Hunger Games” written by “Suzanne Collins”, they definitely do. This could also be known as a totalitarian government. These places take to extreme the punishment, violence and unfairness. Although, the government in the Hunger Games is set in a futuristic theme it is still alike to that of Nazi Germany. However, no one has any power to vote in a totalitarian government and they have to obey cretin guidelines and rules such as behaviors, restrictions, education, and lifestyles. If even one of these guidelines were broken you would face severe discipline. “When I was younger, I scared my mother to death, the things I would blurt out about District 12, about the people who rule our country, Panem, from the far-off city called the Capitol. Eventually I understood this would only lead us to more trouble. So I learned to hold my tongue and to turn my features into an indifferent mask so that no one could ever read my thoughts.” Free speech, we learn, is not a given in Panem. Katniss censors herself because of the fear her mother has of the government. Notice how she has to hide her thoughts and her emotions in District 12 to avoid being a problem to the Capitol. This is very close to the people that lived in Nazi Germany at the time. I’m sure that both Panem’s and Nazi Germany’s people would have to endure life threaten consequences if there government heard of any faulty accusations about them. The Hunger Games is a gladiator type sport, which is punishment for the uprising against the Capitol that happened long ago in the novel “The Hunger Games”. Why are the Hunger Games so effective, do you think, this is to keep the districts from rebelling again, because just like Nazi Germany, Hitler made sure that no one would stand up against him? He

in The Hunger Games are two brave, rebellious sixteen-year olds, who endure an oppressive government and fight for the freedom of themselves and their society. The Districts (The Hunger Games) are set up from a failed civil war whereas Factions (Divergent) was set up more as a Utopian society. Districts are divided by resources while Factions are divided by personalities. Both books are very interesting and have grabbed the attention of young, teen readers (like myself).
