What is a totalitarian system?
- relating to, being, or imposing a form of government in which the political authority exercises absolute and centralized control over all aspects of life, the individual is subordinated to the state, and opposing political and cultural expression is suppressed: "A totalitarian regime crushes all autonomous institutions in its drive to seize the human soul" (Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.)
What makes a resume our government at the totalitarian system Government
controls everything in your private and in public life. You can see
this in the world of the hunger games with Pres. snow controlling the
entire district. In the reading and mentions it totalitarian systems
use not only bugging and excess force by military power over it people
it uses spies with in the people see you can't even trust one another
therefore it makes it harder for rebellion to form. Use your family
members against you as spies therefore you have no one to trust and turn
against each other instead of turning against the government.
There are many aspects of totalitarian systems in the hunger games.
Which are the fencing in of the districts and not relaying any
information about the other districts to each other no communication
with each other to make it harder for them to rebel and unite.
Dehumanize there people by making them compete in the hunger games and
turn each district against chowder.
These aspects of Totalitarian system can be seen today in the world by
example North Korea. North Korea controls almost everything they control
what information comes into the country and what information about the
country goes out of it people have no means of communication except for
boot leg radios and laptops. The technology in the hunger games with
heavily controlled in District 12 there were no telephones except for in
the houses of the victors. Which cannot call other people in other
districts you can only call the capital and other people in District 12.
Like what North Korea has they just recently have a cell phones to the
populist but they can only call people within North Korea though self
and cannot call anyone outside of North Korea.
North Korea just like the
capital controls the amount of food it's people get the shopping
markets in North Korea you go into them you cannot buy from it. Just
there for show just like in the hunger games when the districts get
ration from the capital the capital controls all the food. There is also
hierarchical society in North Korea were people of the political aspect
have abilities to get things outside the country then the people on the
lower society. Much like in the hunger games with people and capital
have access to everything but the people in the district have at excess
very little and the wealth is controlled mostly by the capital just like
it stated in the readings the wealth of the world is controlled by only
a few bit of people in our world.
