That's what the Romans did, I think. It was their motto for ruling conquered populations: only give them the necessities for life AND some entertainment to distract them. Spectacles, like circuses or gladiator matches, or executions would serve for entertainment.

This is a cool story.

Sorry for my late response but thank you! :)

And indeed. The roman emperors discovered that you can more or less enslave someone as long as they're entertained.

This might be one of the best six-word stories I've come across in my time on dA, I like how it conjures an image in my head with so few words. :clap:

Does this have anything to do with The Hunger Games?

No, I have never read the books. The inspiration came from reading Satire X for my Roman studies course.
