After watching The Hunger Games: Catching Fire based on Suzanne Collins's novel, Catching Fire, (the second installment in the Hunger Games trilogy), I wasn’t surprised by the hidden symbolism in the movie and the huge ‘teenage audience’ that filled the cinema that weekend. Here we have predictive programming at its finest, and despite the movie being a little too slow for my liking, what I saw was the second part of a three part narrative that clearly plants ideas of acceptance, sacrifice and revolution in the minds of the young. I've tried to keep this one short, but you know me?
The books are set in a supposed futuristic country lying in the remains of the United States, where long ago (long after Obama Care) there were supposedly '13' districts. Collins’s novels talk about how the 'districts' grew angry in their poverty at the wealth and elitism of the capital of Panem. The ‘districts’ revolted but the capitol responded with a brutal nuclear attack, destroying District 13 and rendering the other districts helpless, with no food or means of getting out of their ‘camp’, sorry, ‘district’, unless chosen to die in the ‘hunger games’. So from this background we have the scene and setting for the Hunger Games Trilogy (below).
I am not going to go over the first book/film in this blog but suffice to say, that the second movie (book) like the first, is awash with symbols/archetypes that seem to be classic programming devices. And more alarmingly, the books seem to project a very viable vision of the future for not only America but for the world.
In the second movie Catching Fire we have ‘once child victors’ now fighting for survival in a 75 year tournament called the Quarter Quell, which is an event taking place every 25 years in after a new rule is added to the game by President Snow, more on him shortly. The new rule for this Third Quarter Quell states that contestants will be reaped from the existing pool of victors, which sees Katniss Everdeen (the heroine) being sent back into the new tournament.
The Capitol of the ‘new America’ or Panem is a clearly a reference to both Arcadia and the Greek god of cooking – Pan (joke). Seriously, Arcadia was the place from where Bohemia would draw its inspiration, and both are symbols of the unbridled, often lavish, wild parties, etc. But According to Greek mythology, Arcadia of Peloponnesus was the domain of Pan, a virgin wilderness home to the god of the forest and his court of dryads, nymphs and other spirits of nature. The Hunger Games Capitol is an ‘urban’ forest of the 'gods' and in its classic ‘symbolic reversal’ of the true meaning, it becomes a city dedicated to all that would be the opposite of true freedom.
Saturn is often symbolized as a goat or goat head because its astrological sign is Capricorn – the goat. Pan is the goat and therefore Saturn symbolism is obvious in the composite representation of the devil image or Baphomet (below). Both Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn and its ‘hidden vibrationary’ effect on the ‘powers that be’, banking, law, education, etc., so therefore Panem is the ultimate Saturn city of the future.
|Panem - the Capital City of Saturn|
Connected to this is the ‘e’ of Panem, which is a heavily used letter with numerological associations in many logos or corporations, not least in the Intel and Saturn-like Explorer logos. I’ll come to Eurostar shortly.
logos and symbolism to reinforce this power of transcendence.
M’ is also another letter important to the mystery schools of antiquity, being the numerological equivalent of ‘13’, we have the ‘rise and fall’ of America in the Hunger Games books, and of course this relates to the original 13 districts or the 12 sectors around 1 (the Capitol). There are of course 12 Jurors and 1 Judge. ‘M’ or the 13th letter in the alphabet is the master with 12 disciples and esoterically speaking 13 is the ‘experiencer’ of the 12 signs of the zodiac. There are only 12 months in the Gregorian sun calendar but there are 13 months in the lunar calendar, there were 13 districts, but now only 12 remain, etc... numbers (and letters) are vibrational codes that affect the subconscious. As David Icke once wrote in The Biggest Secret;
“These number codes have even deeper meanings than the more obvious ones of days, months, and the zodiac. Numbers also represent vibrational frequencies. Every frequency resonates to a certain number, colour and sound. Some frequencies, represented by numbers, colours and sounds, are particularly powerful. Symbols also represent frequencies and they affect the subconscious without the person realizing it is happening. This is another reason why certain symbols are seen in secret societies, national flags, company logos, advertising and so on.”
And I would suggest that the carefully chosen detail in such movies, are part of this rationale.
The Masonic eagle used in on the logo for The Hunger Games districts and the capitol is clearly a rendition of the ancient Roman eagle (see my last article) and can be found on the Great Seal of America and on much Nazi regalia. Why? Because. It is the Phoenix that is rising out of chaos, the bird of change and resurrection. The same symbol has been used many times in other movies too see my review of Pacific Rim, which shows a future global government using the same winged emblem. I would also suggest that the Mocking Jay emblem of the Hunger Games is also a symbol for the same reasons. I’ll come back to that later.
|Signs and symbols rule the world, not laws|
You don’t have to be an expert to see the connections between what is known as Agenda 21 and the possible (eventual) reshaping of the land in what is now America, to become something similar to that of the Districts in The Hunger Games movies.
Agenda 21 was established at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992, hosted by Maurice Strong (below), a Canadian oil and business billionaire and long-time frontman for the Rothschilds and Rockefellers as exposed in David Icke’s and others’ books over the years. Strong has been a leader of the ‘exploit-the-environment-to-scam-the-people programme’ which is now a standard policy adopted globally by almost every country. The leaked maps of the new EU ‘regions’ also show ‘districts’ or regions that would ultimately change the very land, borders and therefore ‘reality’ for people across what was once considered a national sovereignty. The UK would be split into three sectors connected to chunks of other countries to create ‘transnational regions’.

“Standing tough under stars and stripes
We can tell
This dream's in sight
You've got to admit it
At this point in time that it's clear
The future looks bright
On that train all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes from New York to Paris
Well by seventy-six we'll be A.O.K.
What a beautiful world this will be...”
A future global Hunger Games society won’t be beautiful, but the trains just might run ‘under sea’ by rail by then? How did the Nazi’s transport their victims during the Second World War? On trains of course! And crikey, a future world government wouldn’t think twice about shipping people by train trans-nationally, if the tunnels and trains where there in the future. Anyway back to the now.
|Whatever a global society will look like, trains will play a massive part in its future|
"We plan to invest more than £70 billion in all forms of transport by 2021. High Speed 2 (HS2) is part of this, accounting for £16 billion of this investment. We are developing HS2 to provide Britain’s railways with new capacity, better connectivity and quicker journeys. HS2 will link 8 of Britain’s 10 largest cities, serving 1 in 5 of the UK population. It will allow more passengers to use trains and more freight operators to use rail rather than road."
16 Billion on something that would help bring about that futuristic centrally controlled world is money worth spent eh? The Chinese government also proposed building a network of trans-Eurasian high-speed railways connecting from China to Russia, Europe, Central Asia, India, and Singapore via Indochina and Russia has proposed to build a high-speed rail link, (an oil and gas pipeline), and a fiber optic link to North America via an around 100 km long tunnel under the Bering Strait. Well see, but of course in an Ideal 'centrally controlled world', all these lines and routes would be utilized, once flying has been further demonised under the climate change carbon tax nonsense.

President Saturn and his fondness for seeing the young killed
President Snow played by Donald Sutherland in the movies, is a classic Cronos (Saturn) figure. The Father Christmas look is one thing, but the ‘father figure’ and tyrannical president who resides over Panem (Saturn’s capital) is a bit of a giveaway. Saturn was the god of time, often depicted as a baby in a manger and as an old white bearded man, which we call today ‘Old Father Time’, and Snow of course presides as ‘father time’ over the 12 districts.
|Cronos in different art forms|
|Lavish parties thrown by the elite of Panem – lavish parties thrown by the Rothschilds and other elite families.|
This is the Nazi mind-set in a movie, but it’s still here and running the show. I’ve read in several sources that the ultimate goal of Agenda 21 is to have a global China, a society that was closed and isolated for decades to allow the planned global society to be honed, developed and tested for efficiency. One primary element of this is the one- child (or none) population policy. Babies born in China in breach of the one-child rule are denied food, health care or education. They are often killed, if they are female, to stop them producing children later in life, and otherwise they are left in ‘dying rooms’ where they are systematically murdered through neglect and starvation. Yes, The Hunger Games in its ‘real 21st Century form’.
Katniss is Artemis - the Goddess
According to Wikipedia, the Greek myth of Theseus served as a major basis for The Hunger Games story, but for those that read my blog, they won’t be a surprise to find that Katniss is more of a representation of Artemis, Diana and even Europa.
|Diana, Artemis, Katniss – same archetype|
|The future Nazi America, lets hope not...|
After winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) return home to District 12. On the day Katniss and Peeta are to start a 'victory tour' of the country, she is visited by President Snow, who explains that when she defied the Capital by breaking the rules (so that she and Peeta both survived the last Hunger Games), she inspired rebellions in districts and now must continue to pretend to be in love with Peeta or her family will be killed. They are to 'maintain the illusion' that her actions were out of love, and not to incite 'an uprising'. The Elite are both terrified of ‘real love’ and of course an uprising, especially the non-compliance version.
|Keeping the Peace through fear, violence and oppression|
|Fascism yesterday, today and tomorrow – The Hunger Games society|
Welcome to the New World Order
The world that Katniss is born into is one that is the Illuminati ‘heaven’, a place of total servitude and ‘order’ – a 'new world order', that is on the verge of change again. It is a police state of the ultimate kind, strangely enough not dissimilar to the one portrayed in the movie Equilibrium and THX 1138, the latter was the first official movie by George Lucas. All of these movies depict a military police sate that inflicts total violence and brutality over a slave race. A future scenario that may not be so far off, unless people start to see the prison that is being built around their senses today, in this time-frame-reality! If America can go from cowboys to space travel in less than a Century, then anything is possible.
here for more information.
|Spot the difference? History could repeat itself, well err, it already has!|
Chips embedded in everyone.
In the games themselves, and across the city world the contestants are ‘microchipped’ and the whole future society literally looks like kind of totalitarian world that the Nazi elite in the 1940’s would have had dribbled at the mouth over. Panem is the ‘state of the art’ technological 'district to district' life, with everything linked by microchip, communication systems, etc. The masses are slaves to their Panem masters, just as today the masses are slaves to the elite power brokers that invented banking and politics and the very technology that we consume and have helped create.
Artemis systems were designed and sold as means to spot and fight infections in babies, but also to grab data from both medical records and ‘real time sensors’ feeding data to, what its own literature calls ‘the machine world’.
According to the Artemis website: ‘Artemis is working to create embedded computing systems, although invisible, make a significant contribution to improving our daily lives’. What is more, they offer state-of-the-art industrial applications which are part and parcel of the European economy and what will become – an electronic currency [world currency]
The website goes on to say:
‘In order to promote economies of scale, reduce costs and encourage the marketing of products based on these technologies, the European Union (EU) is launching a public-private partnership in the field of research into embedded computing systems in the form of a Joint Technology Initiative, implemented by the ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking.'
In other words the massive integration of mobile phones to bank cards, cars and planes (all transport), to all computing devices, would cover 98% of all usage globally. The market for this is beyond words, with over 4 billion embedded systems sold in 2007 and the world market worth 60 billion EUR and rising at an annual rate of 14 % in 2010!
Talk about profiting from others 'happy' servitude? Panem here we come!
Computers are moving away from the desktop and can be found in 'everyday devices' of all sorts form phones to smart meters. Innovations made possible by embedded systems make our lives healthier and more interesting (so they tell us), our transport safer, and our energy use more sustainable. They are at the heart of industrial innovation and competitiveness, creating and sustaining jobs and economic well-being, oh yeah? In the movie, and like other movies of this genre, the world is run by micro-chips, holographic interfaces and at the extreme end, computers and the world-wide-web becomes a 'living machine consciousness'. The internet is an artificial consciousness and with no stretch of the imagination could become a living entity. A total surveillance sky net if you like? We already have this type of surveillance with the 'intellistreets' systems and in The Hunger Games movie, everyone is watched by an advanced version if this technology.

A phoenix rising
At the capitol, the now celebrity status ‘tributes’ train before the games begin while Katniss draws the attention of many other tributes, who applaud her as she successfully defeats the hologram opponents in the training simulator. During the skills assessment, she ties a noose around a dummy's neck and hangs it with the name Seneca Crane (the previous game-maker's name) painted on it. At the tributes' TV interviews with Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci) below right, all of the tributes voice an opposition of the execution of the Quarter Quell in an attempt to get the games cancelled. We’ve seen the concept of televised ‘slaughter games’ before where a ‘desensitised public’ consume others ill-fated deaths, in the likes of Running Man starring Schwarzenegger (left). Don’t rule it out folks? If people will watch public executions in the so called civilised world and other endless shit known as reality TV, then the future TV schedule is wide open. You can even watch it on your 'smart android 'living phone too'.
|Phoenix, Salamander and fire mocking jay bird – all symbols of transformation|
|Katniss and Peeta on fire are Apollo and Artemis riding chariot on a Greek coin|
And as sure as I am a Yorkshire man (in this life), and I haven’t read the third book, Katniss is destined to die and or have children (possibly both) due to this symbolic theme she represents. As I said earlier, she is also the woman clothed with Sun (fire) in the Book of Revelation, and the EU, the UN and the Security Council, replicate this symbolism, as phoenix rising out of tyranny and war.
|Today and tomorrow - if we let it happen?|
The obsession with the number 12 across all forms of history, literature and the occult isn’t wasted too in the Catching Fire book/film. Twelve Symbolizes the command and the good, and governs the ‘space and the time’ we live under. It’s another symbol for the Moon’s influence over the Earth. It’s the Illusion of time, just as the tournament is an 'illusionary' Island - a game world, run by a ‘gamemaker’. The Quarter Quell tournament takes place on a ‘clock Island’ called the Cornucopia with 12 points (sectors) that rotates to offer the contestants different challenges, from poisonous fog, monkey mutations, to showers of blood. The wheel is also ‘Hecate’s Wheel’, named after the triple Goddess (3x4 = 12) who was variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. Sounds like the Quarter Quell tournament.
The 24 (2 x12) victors soon learn that every hour another attack will come, the first being the fog, the second being the mandrills and at midnight and noon (12 again), lightning strikes a very large tree.
King Cnut. No that’s not a misspelling its his real name.
|The 12 pointed star in a few of its many forms|
The end scenes
As I have already shown the games are set around a saltwater lake (clock), during which Katniss becomes an ally of other victors from the other districts. As the victors fight it out over the terrain, a few of them along with Katniss discover the electromagnetic force field that surrounds the island. Beetee hatches a plan to wipe out the opposing team of victors and destroy the clock (time) by using the lightning, through a wire. As the plan goes wrong (or does it?) and the wire gets broken, Katniss attaches the remaining wire to an arrow and shoots it at the force field to destroy the arena, causing her to black out.
In the book Katniss awakens days later with Gale by her side and learns her family is safe but District 12 has been destroyed, and that she is on her way to District 13.
Mocking Jay pin, Silent Salute and some predictive programming
According to the author, the silent salute given by Katniss "is an old and rarely used gesture of our district, occasionally seen at funerals. It means thanks, it means admiration, it means good-bye to someone you love." But it’s interesting when you dig a little deeper and find that the salute is reminiscent of certain Nazi youth salutes found across Eastern Europe in the late 1930’s? The image below left is a modern day Ukrainian Girl Scout and an embellished image that gives the impression of the Hitler Youth propaganda, back in the day.
|An image speaks a thousand words|
The Girl Scouts of America also adopted the three finger salute in which the thumb and pinky fingers touch with three outstretched fingers. Katniss Everdeen commands the respect of her peers becoming a hero when she salutes to Panem’s viewing audience on the victory tour. Unlike the recommended Girl Scout salute, (above) Katniss outstretches her arm as did Nazi sympathizers during World War II. Do we have a little cult following in the making here? Notice the Lady Gaga-like Effie Trinket wearing the monarch Butterfly outfit (above right), a classic symbol for the Project Monarch (MK Ultra) Mind Kontrol (German spelling) unit that came about after the Second World War, not least through the insane activities of the Angel of Death – Joseph Mengele.

In plain sight
The illuminati and those in control of the current ‘global empire-in-the-making’ love to hide their agenda in plain sight within commercial ‘so called’ fictitious movies and the media industry in general. Hunger Games is the ‘script’ for the totalitarian elite ruled brutal police state. And when I see such an underlying theme in one of the biggest movie releases of the year, worth tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars, is not to be passed off as just a story. This is the clearly the blueprint for a new America.
The agenda is repeatedly being laid out right in front of our eyes, both in ‘real’ everyday life and in the things we choose to expose ourselves to within the so called entertainment industry, yet of course point this out to some folk (even now) and you will likely be ridiculed because what you are talking about is merely ‘fictitious’.
As I and others have shown in similar articles, The Hunger Games does indeed make the use of visual metaphor to evoke the inhumanities of Nazi Germany, but it is also illustrating exactly where we are headed again, if things do not change. As with all of the ‘ruling empires’ and dictatorships dressed up as democracies, ‘games, sports and tournaments have been used to distract and control the masses. From 'Rome' to a possible 'Panem hunger game society', all blood sports were created to satisfy the twisted needs of a crackers ruling elite. As Haymtitch reminds Katniss before she enters the games in Catching Fire,
“Remember who the real enemy is…”
More than this, we need to remember who we are, once we become empowered through a common human desire for true love and true freedom, we will no longer attract the ‘enemy’.
Until next time
