A few of the ways the government will manipulate and distract its people are by the development of a clever social hierarchy system and the believable techniques of propaganda. The totalitarian governments created in George Orwell's 1984 and Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games are very comparable when it comes to the rigid social structure to maintain control and power over its citizens. The social hierarchy developed in the novel The Hunger Games, begins with a leader figure of the nation Panem: President Snow. He runs the futuristic Capitol which lords over all the other twelve districts and portrays economic dominance over Panem.
The 2008 to 2010 published book series The Hunger Games, written by Suzanne Collins, tells the story of "Panem", a country consisting of the wealthy Capitol and twelve districts in varying states of poverty. Every year, children are chosen to participate in an annual televised and deathly competition called The Hunger Games. In Collins’ novel the hierarchical structure starts with President Snow as the head. He is followed by the citizens of the capitol. Hierarchically descending and locally further away from the capitol follow the twelve districts.

At the same time a young girl whose boyfriend also committed suicide, is also trying to find a logical explanation. What we described in the prologue, about the evolution of the J-Horror genre, materializes during this specific movie, where Sono produces a terrifying effect without the assistance of the supernatural, simply by taking a social remark concerning the decaying, modern society, to its extremes. Suicide Club manages to place the terror in the heart of the spectator even within the simplest lines of its narrative, thus making films like Ju On, seem like child 's
Hero by director Zhang Yimou tells the myth of Nameless, a skilled martial art warrior who attempted to assassinate the King of Quin.

In the Ordinary World which is revealed at 58:18 of the film, Nameless is a man from Zhao.

This initial violence clearly mirrors that of the Republican massacre, in that both acts began with a seemingly necessary act carried out in war. The Falangists then take over from the Guardia Civil, proceeding to “herd”16 all the women to a barbershop opposite the city hall. The Falangists, members of the Spanish Fascist political party, were known for their disorderliness, poor discipline and their street violence prior to the Civil War.17 Hence their taking over of the shooting mirrors the drunkards taking over the lines in the Ayuntaimento – in both cases, their taking over represents a descent into
An eye for an eye or the law of retaliation is the principle most people live their lives by. For the characters in Frankenstein, this concept is apparent as the main character, Victor, creates a monster and instantly abandons him which sets off the chain of events revolving around revenge. However, as Gandhi once stated, “an eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind” (Gandhi). Throughout the novel, the creature and Victor engage in a recurring cycle of vengeance, but these acts of revenge are bittersweet as in the end it destroys both of them. In the novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley reveals how revenge consumes and destroys those who surrender to it.
First, the monster was abandoned and stricken mentally. Then, the people in the village threw rocks at the beast with rage. Along the feeling of self-consciousness, the creature had to deal with loneliness. Without love and responsibility, the monster killed Frankenstein’s best friend, Henry Clerval.

Victor fears his female monster more than his male monster because of the former’s potential as a woman to sire children of her own, which would prove fatal for humanity. Because of his previous experience birthing death (the “trauma of afterbirth” as expressed by Moers), the notion of
Jean –Jacques Rousseau believed that technology, knowledge and science corrupts human beings, and that human nature is good. The more knowledge a person have, many take greed into their hand or the more money a person has they believe they are better than another person. Some also believe the more money they have, the more problems they will have in their life. There is a saying that goes “it’s better to be poor and happy than being rich and miserable.” In the case of technology, it is something that corrupts human beings.
It contain the tortures that are similar to the Hunger Games and the imprisonment of civilians in the underground bases can related to how the handicapped society trap normal people by having them handicapped. The totalitarian figure that is in control of everything is a super smart computer that go with a code name of “AM”. Created by the creators in the U.S Military, AM emerges itself with intelligence and kill everyone due to its hatred toward humanity. Despite the hatred, AM specifically kept and imprisoned five survivors in the inescapable underground bases and severely torture them. The use of terror is one of the characteristic of totalitarianism, and Ellison clearly illustrates that because he give AM so much abilities such as the ability to alter the environment, the ability to control each individual, and also the ability to control the group.
Oftentimes, people read their favorite books or watch popular movies and they are completely oblivious to the origin of the theme(s). In fact, a collection of recent movies, books and paintings include themes dating back to mid-19th century. Indeed, the 19th century transcendentalists inspired many of today’s influential artists. For instance, mainstream movies like the “Star Wars” saga, best selling books such as the Hunger Games series, and distinguished artwork like Dispersion all suggest transcendentalist themes. Even though humanity moved farther away from simple lifestyle, some ideas from transcendentalists remain prominent in modern movies, books, and paintings.
