What do you think that it would really be like to live in the Capitol? Why do they not seem to feel any guilt for The Hunger Games contestants? These are all questions that still haunt me. I'd love to hear other people's opinions.
To make a different point, the people of the Capitol are still under the control of the Capitol (government). The Capitol has raised a bunch of mindless drones that will eat anything that's fed to them. In this way I don't think we're an extreme version of the Capitol (that would be bordering conspiracy).
I think the people of the Capitol are desensitized to what the Hunger Games actually mean, and since they aren't negatively affected by it, it would be easier for them to see no problem with it. Plus the Capitol (government) makes enough of a spectacle out of it with the opening ceremonies and the interviews and things that it makes it seem less like murder and more like a show.
I think it would be interesting if Collins went back and did some short stories about Capitol life, like what it's like for children there. They can't all be grownups, you know?
Well, that's my spiel. All my stated as my opinion.
The Capitol is similar to our society. The better we live the more we will turn to other things for diversions.
