The theory that all the old people in The Hunger Games are assholes

There may be a rule against this in the book I don't know about, but check this out.
  1. So young people are always chosen, but anyone can volunteer as tribute
  2. AH-NY-ONE!
  3. So why don't the elder people in every area volunteer?
  4. They're already old and have lived a full life
  5. They're probably becoming more and more of a burden for others
    #notalloldpeopleareburdens but still
  6. Maybe they have kids, but don't you want them to live on and sacrifice yourself instead?
  7. It's brutal to live in a world where you have to do this, but I feel like it's worse to constantly be sacrificing your young ones
  8. In other words, not volunteering when you're older is a royal dick move
    Assholes!
  9. ALSO!!!!
  10. If they did this, The Hunger Games would just be a bunch of old people trying to kill each other
    By giving each other heart attacks! Hah!
  11. IT WOULD HAVE LOWEST RATINGS OF ALL TV SHOWS IN THE CAPITOL
  12. IT WOULD PROBABLY GET CANCELLED AFTER A SIX EPISODE RUN
  13. There, I just solved Hunger Games.
  14. ...
  15. You're welcome.
