What if You Read The Hunger Games? by Formerly Spherical

What if The Hunger Games portrayed politicians as vicious predators willing to sacrifice people on a whim to maintain their grip over others? What if the villains in the story personified Orwell's insight that "political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable"? What if those who foment war, market war, profit from war, even extol war, won't stop orchestrating mass murder...until the masses withdraw their consent?

Got to get to the bookstore today.
