[The Hunger Games] depict a world where children are slaughtered for entertainment, power is in the hands of nearly untouchable tyrants, and workers starve as the affluent look on and laugh.
Introduction, The Hunger Games and Philosophy

Were fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self destruction.
Plutarch Heavensbee ,Mockingjay, page 379

If Cato broke through the trees right now, I wouldnt flee, Id shoot. I find Im actually anticipating that moment with pleasure.
Katniss, The Hunger Games, page 197

For there is no difference between us and them in this. Since we've compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them) and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, God did it for us.
Romans 3:23-24, MSG

Im not the forgiving type
Katniss, page 242, The Hunger Games

If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago

Where you live should not determine whether you live,
or whether you die. ― Bono

Its often said that privilege is invisible to those who have it.
Christina Van Dyke, (page 259) The Hunger Games and Philosophy

Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Jesus in Luke 6:31, TNIV
