Just these few differences in these characters attitudes how the different tones throughout the story versus the movie and how the movie has a much more serious and intense feeling
But the main reason to why we should completely abolish stereotyping above all other propaganda manipulation techniques is what I stated before, it has a brainwashing effect on human minds. The existence of manipulation through stereotyping and the acceptance of it has made it to be untouchable by the mind, however the mind itself is undeniably touched. We could say these old advertisements are historical and should not be touched, though, we should consider the effect it has on our children, the day they learn about how human kind low-mindedly accepts this foul use of thoughts. How come that we rational, loving people have these suppressed feelings towards others with differences?
All of these factors are presented in the novel throughout the experience of Katniss Everdeen in the games. Katniss is a 16 years old teenager from District-12, one of the districts where families suffer to put a something in their empty stomach. Her bad luck leads her to become a tribute in the hunger games, which is an undebatable evidence that the "Hunger Games" novel is a dystopia. To begin with, the hunger games are created by the government of Panem. So basically it is an annual competition where 2 kids - a girl and a boy- between the age of twelve and eighteen, are chosen from
In the districts, everyone is forced to watch The Games, but no one likes watching it, while the Capitol people like and enjoy watching The Games. If the audience in the Capitol does not like it, the sponsors will not give money to the tributes, and this will make The Game boring. As a result, The Game will lose its effect on Panem, which might lead to stop The Hunger Games. The dehumanized people of Panem ironically feel excited about a love story, but does not give sympathy to those who are being killed each year. In addition, Katniss’ team proves this point again after the games when Katniss mentioned how they described the games.
The government is coming to take you away! Many people on this planet fear government control, so it is often a common dystopian theme. Some people, such as the residents of North Korea, already are in complete government control and brainwashing. A recurring idea in government control is the government wiping out a certain percentage of people to keep the population down, which is usually the people with less intelligence than average. In Neal Shusterman’s “Unwind” the parents get to choose if they want to get rid of their child between the ages of 13 and 18, but there’s a catch.

As evident from “The Politics of The Hunger Games” by Jamey Heit, the districts suffered oppressive conditions because of the “inaction from a lot of people” (The Politics of The Hunger Games 14). The only way such a tyrannical governance can be prevented is by the youth getting involved in the social and political life.
In a society controlled by fear and ignorance, citizens believe everything the government tells them because they do not know how to think. Many novels have a theme of government manipulation, especially in dystopian novels such as George Orwell’s 1984. In the novel, leaders clearly skew the information that they give to the public in order for them to be too ignorant to speak out. In 1984, the first sentence is especially unnerving because the government changes history and the symbols behind the number thirteen and the season of spring.
When a society decides as a whole to dehumanize people, it’s citizens become much less important than the well being of the dystopia. (Blog…Violence) Not only people with ideas, but also the ideas themselves are dangerous to the existence of a dystopia. This leads us to the next ingredient of a dystopia, fear of the outside world.
