We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Though agreement is not uniform, and our government not nearly as oppressive as the one in The Hunger Games, many Americans simply want to be left alone, to get their lives back. The Hunger Games seems to channel this natural, and very American, urge to be free.
Re 'march on Jerusalem', the attack could be seen as an attempt to undermine the western wall in the greatest metaphorical sense of the word --the Bible. If Israel falls, the Old Testament is suddenly merely a tribal ancient history (hi, Herodotus), and the New Testament just a steampunk sci-fi chronicle. Both books with a rump 'cult following' --shrinking, slightly mad, somewhat disgraced.
correction, in the world of the no-Israel, there will be none of that notion of 'grace' --ergo, no 'disgrace'. There'll have to be a new word for it --or, as Orwell noted, no word at all, and thus no way to even think of it.
