November 30, Hunger Games Catching Fire: Badass Body Count sorry old man, I have a dress fitting to go to Number of people killed: For context, here is why THG is a sexist fairy tale.
It anticipates most of the criticisms. An insightful, even optimistic retort is that at least she's not killing, at least she's made the ethical choice to not kill anyone. But this insight is exactly what you are supposed to think, it is an illusion, and it is why my tally above is also a lie.
She kills one person, but she is responsible for all of their deaths. From the very beginning of the Game it was immediately true that everyone but one got killed. It's not like they went in there thinking, "I'm not going to kill anyone because I am planning to escape this Game.
Katniss's thinking is basically, "I'm not butcher, but I am going to try and survive. This is a closed system.
Whether she shoots them down herself or waits for the psychopath in the group to do it for her, it's the same. What's important is that this "choice" not to kill, and the personal feeling of morality it falsely gives you is how the system survives. Because you feel good about your choice, "at least I'm a good person," you fight the system much less.
You are less of a threat to the system because you are allowed to believe you're a good person and they're not.
You killed 15 people. Just because the system tells you, "the other tributes are your enemy," doesn't mean it's a factual statement, you have to answer the Thin Red Line question: There are Good Samaritan laws in place which protect you from liability if you give someone CPR in good faith but inadvertently crack a rib.
But this is nonsense. The person motivated to offer CPR NEVER thinks about a future lawsuit, he just acts; or, in the reverse, the person who is nervous about lawsuits was never going to help anyway, and thank goodness he can blame it on lawyers.
These laws have the perverse effect of allowing the us passive aggressive techonauts to observe events rather than intervene in events.
There's going to be some who will respond with the obvious: Both arguments miss the point completely: It looks like Katniss is free to make personal decisions, but no matter what her free brain decides, everyone around her dies as planned, huh, that's odd.
The only "free" choice, the only way to beat the Game, is not to play. If you really wanted to be a moral agent in such a terrible environment, you'd have to convince the other tributes to all agree not to fight each other, knowing full well that the soldiers will therefore come-- that is the point of the maneuver, to expose the evil of the system instead of allowing them their deniability, "oh, we don't kill anyone, the kids kill each other!
It is the only anti-system choice short of revolution.
The response that this maneuver puts the individual Districts in danger, too, is, unfortunately, part of the deal.The Impact of Television Shows on Society: An Analysis of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games PAGES 2.
