* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In District 11, the dark-skinned population is forced to farm and are treated with particular brutality. This sounds a lot like slavery in the [[DeepSouth American South]]. Panem and [[spoiler:District 13]] are nuclear powers locked in a stalemate. Panem is decadent, wealthy, and corrupt. Its citizens enjoy outrageous luxury while they exploit the surrounding communities to feed their enormous appetites. [[spoiler:District 13]], on the other hand, is a dull and drab place, ruled by an at least equally totalitarian regime that regiments every aspect of its citizens' lives. That's how the US and the USSR portrayed each other during the UsefulNotes/ColdWar.

** [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution 13 districts]] oppressed by a rich central government with no say on their treatment, finally having undergoing {{the dog bites back}}.
** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holodomor Rural provinces are worked to starvation because they are forced to give all their products to their totalitarian central government]].
** [[WarIsHell In any war or violent revolution]], [[LeaveNoSurvivors war]] [[ShootTheMedicFirst crimes]], {{cruel and unusual death}}, {{cold blooded torture}} {{false flag operation}}s, {{les collaborateurs}}, {{chronic backstabbing disorder}} and {{you have outlived your usefulness}} can all get [[FridgeHorror scarily commonplace]], regardless of [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified what the rebels say]]. Afterwards, people justify it by saying "[[TruthInTelevision these things happen in war]]".
** [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI After a brutal war that left millions dead]], the defeated people are [[WhosLaughingNow humiliated and in many ways, enslaved]] by the victors [[TheDogBitesBack until the defeated people snap]] and [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge seek revenge]] against [[ItsPersonal those who defeated them]], led by a [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler charismatic warmonger]].
** The world's rich people are [[FirstWorldProblems too distracted by showbiz, fashion and gaming]] [[SkewedPriorities to care about real tragedies]], such as war, totalitarianism and poverty in the world they live in, and the fact that they live in a {{police state}} ([[TruthInTelevision as demonstrated by various authoritarian nations worldwide]] whose people [[BreadAndCircuses remain content due to their nation's wealth]]). This is an intentional {{take that}} on [[ThisLoserIsYou the reader]] and the world's [[TurnOfTheMillennium political]] [[TheNewTens climate]].

** One that is all too commonly {{truth in television}}. The [[PresidentEvil previous dictator]] and [[PoliceState state apparatus]] is [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified defeated and dismantled by rebels]]. [[MeetTheNewBoss Cue a rebel leader]] proclaiming themselves "[[PresidentForLife interim president indefinitely]]", engaging in {{the purge}}, [[DisproportionateRetribution going way too far]] with their {{Roaring Rampage Of Revenge}}, and [[FullCircleRevolution starting a new but equally oppressive state]].
