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.
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. This is a closed system.
You killed 15 people.
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. Both arguments miss the point completely: The only "free" choice, the only way to beat the Game, is not to play.
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 genius of the system is that it never puts everyone at risk, it presents them with a lie: Everyone around her is extraordinarily heroic and self-sacrificing, they literally drag her bad ass to the finish line at the cost of their own lives, so that she can survive as a symbol, and the rest of you dummies think she is the hero.
Only a taught narcissistic psychology would SEE her as heroic when right in front of you and your eyeballs you can observe she is the least heroic of all. The sleight of hand of such movies is that it presents an entirely different society full totalitarianism in the context of TODAY, in the context of narcissism as expected, as ok, so meaningless acts become exciting and meaningful acts are obscured.
Huh, Mags blew herself up with poisoned gas. Ah well, she was old. Your acts appear personal and individualized but conform beautifully, they are no threat.But the task force also found that the video games alone can't explain this aggression.
Rather, it concluded that the "accumulation of risk factors," such as antisocial behavior, depression. The Jimquisition is a webshow by Jim Sterling, an independent (formerly of Destructoid and The Escapist) gaming pundit known for his tendency to stoke controversy..
