All these comments are related to the movie because they all relate in a way into the movie and sadly our everyday lives. We have power struggles in politics as we speak. Yes we do neglect our youth and maybe we are destined to destroy. If you think about it there is always violence, war and etc. Our youth is neglected in many ways like their parents don't care about them or they live a bad life like in the movies. All these are related to the film and in the film like they sand people that live in the desert and don't have parents and I'm assuming that there is and was incest going on in the caves. It also relates to the neglect in youth because kids that are young they look up to the elderly that are killing and being savages and stuff. They are uneducated and dont really know whats the difference between right and wrong. There are struggles in power just like in the recent movie we just watched like the lady that runs the city she thought everything was solid but then all of a sudden everything just fell down.

We have power struggles in politics. We do not neglect our youth as much like the Mad Max movies. We are not destined to destroy. These questions are highly related to the movie. The movie has power struggles in the movie. Auntie wants to be in charge but Master wants to be in charge because he is the one that makes all of the electricity. Mad Max does neglect the youth because they left the kids stranded all by themselves. They left the kids and I can't imagine leaving my future kids stranded somewhere and not returning to them. I would go to the ends of the earth to find my kids. The characters in the movie destroy a lot of things. They will kill each other just for entertainment and a laugh.

I think that we have way too much power struggle in this world anymore it all is about whos the most popular and whos the best in this world. They are also asking if we neglect our youth and I think that we do very much because most parents dont really care if their kid goes out and does whatever which i dont think is a bad thing. I also think that we are destined to destroy because we just are a aggressive species and we do whatever to do what has to be done. They are related to the film mainly because they all have to deal with they way they do things in the movie and I think they represent very accurately whats happening.

I think that we have a lot of power struggle in politics. With everything that is going on with our Government it ties in with Mad Max 3 in various way. I also think that some adults neglect the youth. I dont understand why though. The adults that don’t really care about teens were once teens as well. We always get in trouble for things that we didn’t do wrong. Like while we are driving, we get pulled over for going 1 or 2 over. But people who go about 10 over never get pulled over. Being a teenager and an adult, it makes me upset seeing my friends who aren’t 18 get in trouble. I also see it as adults wanting so much out of us. Yes we are young, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t busy doing our own stuff. I think these questions relate to the movie in a way because they relate to events that happened in the movie.

Politics do have power struggles because they are always fighting and different parties want different things and they will never get things done because they are always arguing. We do neglect our youth because teenagers are always on restrictions parents think that we are going to party and do sexual things but not all teenagers are like that kinda in Mad Max 3 teenagers are just trying to find there way back home and find the people who told them they would be back. We are not destined to destroy things because we live to live and live to enjoy life, face the obstacles that we will come across, and we are here to build and make things better not destroy and make things worse. This questions are related to the film because the politicians probably got in an argument and that is the reason the world is how it is in the movie, and the youth wont ever know what life was once like when the older people were younger, also they are destroyed to does that mean they are destined to destroy. Well most of the people in Mad Max movies are about destroying stuff there was at least one explosion in every movie and we don't have explosions in every day life so does that mean they are destined to destroy?

The world of Mad Max, it is a constant struggle for survival and power. Much like Mad Max, our world is also based on power and status. In certain countries, you are unable to give your insight on topics that would be considered controversial. Throughout the movie, you can see that the people don't have much say in things that concern how they negotiate for methane. This is much different than what we are used to. In the United States, we have the voice and the ability to change things that don't satisfy our needs and wants. Similar to our world, Bartertown seems to have a power struggle between Master Blaster and Auntie Entity. At certain points in the movie, you can see that the fight for power is much like the way that Communist countries like North Korea treat it. In North Korea, the "fight for power" is virtually nonexistent because of Kim Jong Un's ability to send his loyal followers to take out anybody who opposes him. Sound familiar? In Mad Max, Auntie Entity sends Max to do her dirty work and kill Blaster because he can embargo them of their precious methane. All of this is all too familiar in the real world.

All of these comments are related to the movies I believe we are designed to destroy but not all of us are designed to destroy some are smart some are just strong like master blaster strong and smart. Politics wise i think they are definitely crazy they do both need each other because they need to come together and there is always going to be differences but if they were together i think this world still would be messed up because of the ideas these people have are just crazy in this movie i think it might just be the most realistic for survival in Australia and it is kind of cool i believe there probably will be a barter town for people to trade there will be a bunch of plane crashes and i also believe there will be people everywhere and mouths to feed there will be chaos but i think the movie did a pretty good job portraying this apocalyptic struggle so for that questions there could be a lot of answers we are destined to make this happen the wars are always going to be going and its always getting closer to the end so every answer can be different and life changes very quickly.

The people are very disagreeable. They are always argue about little things and nothing is getting done. We do put our kids in the dirt sometimes but there's a understandable to ever case. But we have to understand that our kids is our next future in life. We are not destroy type to hurt our lives and the lives for our children. The films are kinda important to the way they treat others.

Yes, we do have major power struggle and tense relationships in politics. Just like the power struggle in mad max, Master Blaster ran barter town and the Lady who started barter town wanted to be in complete power.
To a point the youth of today is neglected, but not as much as the children in made max were. I dont know of anyone that has been left in a desert oasis and started there own tribe. So i honestly think there is neglect to day, but not left in a desert neglect.
The world is in all reality destine to be destroyed be the people who live here. People want power and money, and that will drive people to do some extreme measures. Such as the lady in the thunder dome wanting to kill blaster and gain power from it.
These questions all relate to the movie because the movie is the result of all the problematic questions. The questions, if all are taken to the extreme the world would slowly end just as it did in the mad max trilogy. So I believe everyone should heed the message in Mad Max and do their part to not let this happen to the world we live in. ~Jake Garner

I Feel like max does what ever he wants whenever he wants to he doesn't care about the law. The politics we have today govern our law. They tell us what to do and what we can do. So no one really likes being told what to do. so I do see allot of struggle in politics cause nothing is ever getting done. I don't think we do because there are laws in place that say we have to come to school and that means they kinda of care about us I would say but we can do what ever we want. Are we destined to destroy. I feel like each and everyone of us is smart enough to kill the whole plant if we really want to. They are related to the movie because they are to busy fighting over the power of the politics they spend no time rising there youth which will end up growing up and turning savage.

Jaeden Spurling said...

Yes, we do have power struggles in politics. Our government can’t decide on things together. Our economy is not the best it should be and we are in terrible debt. The people who are in charge of our politics, government, the president, they have a lot more problems than we do in our everyday lives. They need to make the right decisions for the United states. In Mad Max they don’t have to worry about government or politics. They all have to worry about themselves and others if they are in a group or with other people. They don’t have rules like we do, they don’t have debt like we do, they have themselves and the days ahead of them.
I don’t think we neglect our youth. I think we try to be somebody that were not. I think others try to be more grown up or older. In Mad Max it doesn’t matter the age, or if you want to be older. You probably forget your age and it doesn’t matter at all. It doesn’t change their lives. I don’t think they even know what day it is. It’s just another day, in the open world.
There is people out there destined to destroy. They are people out there that don’t care, they want power and control of everyone and everything. Aunty wants power, she wants to control bartertown and be in charge of everyone and everything. That’s why she tricks Max into killing blaster so she can have power over master.
These questions relate to the film because there is struggle in their lives. Everyday is a struggle for them. They don’t neglect their youth because don’t have to worry about it. They don’t run into others very often, it’s more just themselves. And there is people destined to destroy, like aunty and her “henchmen” in the movie.

These questions relate to the film because the people in the movie are struggling to find any gas but then they find a place that has gas and they try to get into the place and take the tank truck so they have as much gas they want. But they had to wreck a lot of stuff before they could even get into there to get tanker and they also had to get a semi and on the way back with it they shot at it and was overheating and they had to fix it before they could hook up to the tanker trailer. Also these questions relate because things are easier to destroy then they are to build back up. Also they relate to the film because some of the people in the movie will attack and wont make it.

Taia Tupy said...

yes, I believe we can have power struggles in our politics. Some power struggles that we deal with are government when we want things done on time so we can start another project.

I think we neglect are youth in a way that sometimes we take it for granted, but we care in a way that we all want a great education and supportive jobs.

I think we distended to destroy yes and no, I believe some people are distended to destroy and help out the world and others are built to for greater powers, like creating things and building more higher up concentrated buildings with great intention.

I feel as if these questions are related to the film because they are trying to defend themselves from their government, sometimes they don’t understand what their youth is giving them and till its wasted. i also believe in this movie they are destined to destroy, their town, friend and people with in the town.

taborr ellenbecker said...

Yes there are power struggles in our politics. In my opinion it is bad because bribing someones to vote for something that's not good for them.
Yes people in this world neglect our youth. It is disturbing because they are the future of our world. I would like to see the people neglecting those children be neglected to see how they like it, because its wrong. Those children did nothing wrong to deserve what they get. its is NOT RIGHT!

Kevin Bai said...

Yes, we do have power struggles in politics, because people fight for something all the time. and I think we do neglect our youth, because there are many young teenager kids joining the gang, I think its because their parents didnt take good care of them. for the question:"are destined to destroy?" I think yes, because if people keep fighting for something, then there will be a war going on, then the world will destroyed. these questions related to the film is because Max is the guy who has a lot of powers that can fight with the people who makes the laws, and the adult did neglect their youth, because there are many children in the film are neglected by their parents, because they are really wild, and I think it is destined to destroy in the film, because they people cant stop to fight for something, like the gas and power.

I think we do have power struggles in our current society. Thats why we have to vote on whose president, because there's no way that everyone in the world could agree on one thing. People are also constantly competing on whos gonna be the captain or boss in their everyday life. We all wanna be on top and sadly we often go too far to achieve that. In the movie they don't seem to concerned about that. They just seem happy to be alive and do their part to contribute to that. “Do we neglect our youth?” Most definitely, we treat the young as if they have no rights, no say in anything, and aren't capable of very much. I think this is unfair in many ways. When I was a kid I know people would look down on me and I’m sure this is the same way with other people. Then when they get older they seem to then look down on other kids. In Mad Max 3 I think Max was kinda leary on if the kids were fully there or not at times. He underestimated them like adults in our society do. In a way I do believe were destined to destroy the world. Like Wall-E this movies warns us on what could become if we continue to just abuse our earth. We fight with to many other humans and if we keep bombing them and others we could end up doing some serious permanent damage. Things could get out of control fast and before we know it BOOM! Just like that it could be the end of Earth as we know it.

Andrew Alexander said...

I think that we have many power struggles in the government. I think that there are leaders that have cheated their way into power. Also in the past Nixon was caught listening in on phone calls. I think that some people neglect our youth by not caring for them enough and let some of them do whatever they want. Some people are destined to destroy. I think that they are because some people do not appreciate thing enough. If someone spends their time and money building a car I think that that person would appreciate it more because they put their blood, sweat and even their last dollars to build it. People who already have money and just go buy a fast car don't appreciate it as much and they are destined to destroy it because they don't care as much about it and get really cocky driving it and end up rolling it. Same thing as the world the people that put their time in and work all week will appreciate more than people born into wealth.

Jacob Leonard said...

Yes, we do have power struggles in politics, just like between MasterBlaster and Auntie Entity when they had a conflict of who should run BarterTown. Part of me feels like we do neglect our youth while the other half feels like we don't. An example of how we don't is the schools and opportunities we have for the kids, and an example of kids being neglected is the sex trafficking slaves around the world. I feel like some are destined to destroy while others are for world peace, just like the people at the compound in The Road warrior, who wanted to protect what they thought was sacred. Whereas Lord Humungus' men kept trying to destroy what wasnt theirs.

I feel like these questions are related to the film because others wanted peace, and others just wanted to watch the world burn and go to utter mayhem, I say these because there was at least one explosion in every Mad Max movie.

I would say we do have power and struggles in are world. I would say our government is a big part of it. I feel like are government can’t decide on things together that they always have to fight about it. Also are economy isn’t the best right now either, we could do a lot of work on that to. We are in terrible debt. All the people that are above us need to work on these issues, like we have a lot more problems than they do. We have to deal with all the real life stuff and they don’t they get to live a happy life. I wouldn’t say that we neglect our youth but I don’t think we are there enough for our youth. I think that the young try to be more grown and older than what they really are. Life now a days are really hard trying to figure out where you belong or where you should go. People that you hang out and chill with or people to be nice to we have a lot of problems with that now a days. Being the bigger person. Are destined to destroy? I would say that destined is not to destroy. I think that you need to find you’re destined to destroy your enemy’s. I would say that this questions relate to the film because there are so many different youths and powers in there government. Also how at the end of the movie she let Max live.

I believe we do have power troubles in our world. The people we have in power sometimes do not know what they are doing and how to fix things. I believe sometime we neglect the youth because of how we act as kids and how our kids learn from us. Our kids learn from what mistakes we have made or have done. We try not to watch our kids do the dumb or per say the stupid things we all did. I believe in the wrong hands our world could be ended in one shot but we would really have to have the wrong person running our lives and what we do. The power we have we cannot say no you can’t make that law that’s up to them. The laws we have are to try and keep order but we never have order because everyone or some people disobey the laws and go against them. I have but I also learned from my mistakes and have turned my life around. These question go along with the movie because you see it in the movie a lot. You see the neglect of kids or youth. You have no political people ruling you just have a random guy saying I have power so I am the ruler.

Beyond Thunder-dome vs. current world
The government systems of today have struggles anywhere from how we view each other to how we view ourself and we as humans as instinct like to show dominance over other people or even other countries and countries like the united states are world power so we want things our way in other countries aka something we have no control over and if it doesnt go that way we intervene with those other countries. I think that some people in todays world neglect their youth but those to things are similar max doesnt neglet the youth just like good people today dont neglect theyre youth.
We as humans are destined for great things and to build wich sometimes we have to destroy to rebuild.
