    Some say all dystopian stories stem from real problems in society, no matter the time period. Stories like Fahrenheit 451, a classic, supposedly reflects on a real problem in society. So what do you think of that how does something like Fahrenheit 451, or even something more modern like the Hunger Games, reflect on real problems on society? Examples perhaps?

      This is a really great question.
      but what do you think. We need something to go by.
      - for instance, Hunger games… What is going on there… what are the problems and how do they compare to things happening today?

      I think you are right ,    its a scary thought though , isn't it ?   While  I think a lot of people just don't see it clearly this way ,  media  art   imitates life , movies , fictions , documentaries , whatever the medium ,  As to humanity , I fear that  we are going in a dangerous direction .
