“What if we used fantasy not as an escape from our world, but an invitation to look deeper into it?”
Books such as The Hunger Games and Harry Potter are about much more than what they seem to be on the surface. Poverty, torture of prisoners, economic inequality, abuse of wealth and power are just some of the real world issues criticized in these books, but most importantly the main message is that we should always stand up for what’s right. The teenage group Harry Potter Alliance, created by Andrew Slack represents some of the youth that is aware of this and this youth is starting to stand up for the rights of human beings, animals, nature, our survival.
“In fiction, as in our world, youth are capable of leading the effort for justice, given the right inspiration.”
