There’s this concept in the movie where they basically believe that the government created the purge so that poor people would kill each other and rid themselves from the society. They even have these soldiers riding around the different projects in these huge trucks randomly killing off the residents. Also, the wealthiest in the society pay people annually on the night of the purge to go out and capture the poor and innocent/helpless/or unarmed people so that they can kill them in their own personal man-made human hunting grounds. That way they can “purge” but also stay safe in their lavish homes.
I tell you all this information simply to comment that….
I BET! I BET ON EVERYTHING! I BETCHOO IF THERE WAS A WAY RICH PEOPLE COULD DO THIS IN REAL LIFE WITHOUT GETTING IN TROUBLE AND WITHOUT FEELING ANY GUILT (though the same “purge” concept brainwashing that took place in the movie) THEY WOULD DO IT. JUST ROUND UP ALL THE POOR AND COLORED PEOPLE TO HUNT AND KILL THEM DOWN. I BET ON ANYTHING THEY WOULD.
