John Tammy from real clear politics dot com says yes our John I've not seen the moving.
I may not see the movie in the future I don't know given the story why do you say that this is all about the government.
Well it's all about big government -- is hunger games is about a society starving basically fighting for its life for food and you can only have that and and and and and three economy where by the government is not only putting up barriers.
Q production company that bears your trading your productive the production when others aren't you reading a little -- too much into this movie.
It's entirely possible you know -- the moment I have a libertarian and so I I I look for things like this but -- content you just as the two of us will never read the same book twice.
Hunger games has -- demographic every everywhere from preteens all the way to senior citizens.
And I think probably a lot of people see this constant message.
Where people are fighting the capital or under the thumb of the capital and the theme in the book that we will not let them own us that we that we wouldn't it be nice if we can eat.
Isn't it terrible that we have to kill each other for our survival.
That's a pretty anti government message that you like this move enemy you you can count like this -- attention.
Well sadly -- I -- the seal like everyone else some either this weekend or next week but the but the book was a very it was very much.

Is horrific clear pressing the 99%.
And 99% then -- Well it's.
It's entirely possible that's one way to look at it and I have to believe that there are a lot of people out there think that but let's remember she describes the city where the rich people live as the capital.
That you add that to -- sounds a lot more like Washington DC -- New York or Los angelenos John.
Or -- on you get cheap college college big city if it were the rich people city this sounds like -- saying -- the government has all the resources and that strikes me as.
An anti government message what you know.

A little out over the allegorical hill so to speak but.
