If you go out of your way to find some sort of connection, you will find a connection, and sometimes things are just coincidences.
And sometimes, people grasp for straws. A couple years back, the huge thing to do was try to find connections from the Illuminati card game. Let that sink in for a moment. People are trying to find some sort of conspiracy theory in a card game that is based on conspiracy theories. It's no more "predictive" than if one of us decided, "hey, I know a lot about conspiracy theories, I'm a good writer, I'll write a novel about conspiracy theories".
And Hunger Games? Hunger Games uses themes that have been used in fiction countless times before. And seldom, are those themes considered positive. If they are really trying to get us ready for some one world government, you'd think they'd try to make it a little more utopian rather than dystopian. If they are really trying to get people used to the idea of a NWO, they are doing a hell of a job glorifying the resistance.
I do agree that you almost always can find some sort of connections in anything if you really want it to be there, and I'm also with you that there is a lot of coincidences, it's just a matter of seeing things objectively.
But I definitely believe that a lot of the stuff released is carefully designed with elements in it to subconsciously prepare the masses for future scenarios, perfect in line with the agenda of the elite.
I believe Hunger Games is a good example of this considering the agenda of the NWO and the similarities in the movies with the capital in e.g. being the one force ruling all the districts (classes of society, countries etc.) and through total control via chips, monitoring everything and so on..making the masses agree to the slavery system they are in. And if you don't agree, you'll get a bullet in your head by the ever present police force.
It's a movie for teens about teens killing each other to stay alive themselves, the law of the jungle! (which IMO should not be encouraged what so ever in a modern society!)
It is dystopian because that's the future they want to create for us. The average teen or other watching this movie never think of it as similar things can happen to us in a not so distant future, they just cheering on the heroine, hoping she'll kill everyone else and make it to the end.
The glorification of the resistance part I'm not sure of, but maybe it's there to give a feeling of hope? Making the whole thing more interesting to watch, in the mean time the core message already reached it's place in your subconscious = mission accomplished.
