In a Dystopia, the use of propaganda is very important, because the people are only as strong as what they know. So the more their minds are manipulated, the better you can control them. In The Hunger Games, the Capitol put on the news periodically, so all the districts can hear. Since the districts do not know what goes on outside their parameters, they have no choice but to believe what the Capitol speaks about. In the book, in the movie “The Mockingjay” Katniss and District 13 used propaganda to fuel the rebellion against the Capitol. At times, the districts did n0t know whether or not Katniss was alive or what state Panem was in; but by the use of propaganda, they were able to have constant communication with all the other districts and they kept the Capitol on their heels. The Capitol also used propaganda to put fear in those who tried to rebel against them. They tried to double the whippings and they showed people what will happen when you go against the Capitol. Propaganda is how Panem maintained its existence. The Capitol always kept tabs with the districts and they knew how and what to say to keep each district in check. They even lied about Katniss’s death to stop a rebellion. Also, propaganda was used to show the citizens in each district how good the hunger games were. It portrayed the hunger games as a good way to show your love and sacrifice for Panem. It was used effectively, because some citizens loved the hunger games and felt like it was such an honor to participate while the whole Capitol was cheering for them. Also, providing incentives, like a house and food for a year was a great way to get everyone to buy in for the games.
