The way propaganda is used through media in The Hunger Games is pivotal in the story development and also showing why Panem is a dystopian rather than utopia. Propaganda has been used as a tool for the government to convince people to follow their orders. A primary example was when Effie came to advertise the Hunger Games to potential players she showed on a big screen a false version of how the hunger games were, but once players started being chosen to compete in it, it turned into punishment because of the districts rebelling against the Capitol and so there can be “peace” in the Capitol. It impacts the plot because they started to forcefully choose innocent people to compete in the game like the young girl Rue. Rue impacts the plot tremendously because she isn’t fighting for what the other districts are fighting for, she is fighting for survival and to get out of the hunger games. Another important part of the story that doesn’t get the recognition for propaganda is when the Capitol would go live on the news periodically, so every District could hear. This I found efficient data because the Districts don’t know what going on “outside” of the Hunger Games bounds, they have no choice but to believe what the Capitol speaks about. Overall, The Capitol uses these propagandas to provide the districts with information that they want to provide only.
