28. Looks to me like we are having trouble with the phrase "right wing fantasy."

IMHO the Right fantasizes about a world like Atlas Shrugged and not Avatar. Sounds like Hunger Games is about a Right Wing controlled world as seen from the Left and not the Right. IMO the Right fears a world like Hunger Games (from what I have heard as I havent seen it) and believes it would happen if the Intellectually Elite took over. They believe that the Financial Elite will give them a world like Atlas Shrugged.
