Re: The Hunger Games

I think that all types of manipulation are bad because you're forcing someone to act against how they think they should act, if you get what I mean. You are essentially taking away someone's free will and determining how they will act, so even though some types of manipulation are less bad than others, it's still wrong. President Snow's manipulation in Catching Fire is worse because he isn't letting Katniss choose her relationship with Peeta and threatening all of her friends and family, so she had no choice but to do as he says. But Peeta's declaration of love isn't as bad because Katniss chooses to play along with it to stay alive - she didn't have to join him but she chose to because she thought it would help her survival. Although Peeta could be said to be just as bad because he's manipulating her feelings, not just her actions
