Unless you have been asleep for the last two decades, you have probably noticed that the world has changed dramatically. This transformation has been described as “The New World Order.” In this new world, many people envision limited freedoms, a one world currency, diminished privacy, continuous wars, and unadulterated chaos around the globe. For example, the writer of the article “The Hunger Games”: A Glimpse at the Future? offers a grim view of our future existence by comparing the approaching disorder, in his view, to the popular movie by the same title.
The author writes: The hit movie “The Hunger Games” takes place in a dystopian future where the poor and wretched masses live under the high tech tyranny of a wealthy elite. Is the movie depicting the type of society the elite are trying to establish for the New World Order?”

If you are the type afraid to get your feet wet, you may find yourself without any work at all.
