In "The Lottery," the candidate chosen gets stoned to death by the rest of the town. Most people believe that this will solve their problem with growing crops. Not many people see the issue and the real problem; that they believe if they kill someone every year, their plants will grow. In "The Hunger Games," the government and the Capital both believe that by keeping the districts weak, by killing them off and using their fear against them, they are strong and are in control.

As people are living longer, so the burden on the family and state increases, coupled with declining birth rates, it is difficult to see how long the current provisions will hold out, until it collapses. This is coupled with less transparency in business, from a grass roots level to an industrial scale, in layman’s terms, corruption, greed, and mismanagement, all strong indications that the economy is straying from middle path, as more people strive to become obscenely wealthy, at the detriment of others. Indeed as Sachayansrisakul states in his article, “Sufficiency Economy: A Reasonable Approach for Thailand’s Future”, “Thailand is at a declining stage.

School failure among children and adolescents has long been a serious issue in Myanmar. Although education is highly valued among Myanmar families, low enrolment, poor attendance, and high school dropout rates suggest poor quality education, bad school experiences and negative academic outcomes (Save the Children, 2017).

More than 75% of students fell below a basic Myanmar language proficiency, and 79% of students did not earn a pass score on Mathematics in Myanmar language and Mathematics learning achievement test according to a child-friendly school baseline study, comparing students countrywide (UNICEF, 2012).
