This is government propaganda in a dystopian world justifying their actions of sending children to an arena to kill each other for sport. It is controlling society and making them think it is necessary to have the games to keep them safe. The government of Panem claimed that the districts rebelled against "the country that fed them, loved them, and protected them." But the propaganda goes on to say that the lone winner of the hunger games "would serve as a reminder of our generosity and our forgiveness," which according to the capital is sending innocent children to kill or be killed in a bloodbath for entertainment. The government controls everything and everything the people do is monitored and restricted. In Harrison Bergeron, the government also controlled every aspect of people's lives. They made all people "equal in every which way," which means above average people were handicapped through the "unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General." People with average intelligence, like George, wore these awful radios in their ears that were "tuned to government transmitter[s]" and sent a sharp noise to keep them "from taking unfair advantage of their brains" every twenty seconds or so. The government controled everything through the claim of making everyone and everything equal; but all it accomplished was no individuality and no progress: no happiness and no purpose. Both of these examples show how perfect equality and perfect government are the exact opposites of perfect. Individuality and variety is what keeps us human; making us all the same will accomplish nothing and lead to no accomplishments.
