The Hunger Games - Situational Ethics - It's the Rage!
It’s another blockbuster, and this time the children are going for it hook, line, and sinker. The Hunger Games netted $155 million in one springtime weekend! Peter Travers from Rolling Stone magazine sees the movie as exactly representing the zeitgeist of the age—“the mission to define yourself in a world that’s spinning off its moral axis.” Confused Christians are recommending the film to their friends on Facebook. But what should a Christian father think about such a film? Kevin Swanson reviews the film with his daughter Emily, carefully examining the metaphysic, meta-ethic, gender roles, and ethical conundrums from the perspective of God’s Word. Is the Pied Piper of Hamelin slowly working the amoral, post-modern Zeitgeist into the minds of millions and millions of youths? Zeitgeist into the minds of millions and millions of youths?
