This video clip of the Emergency Broadcast System Announcement warns the public that the Purge is about to happen. Although the government accepts the annual Purge, they do not partake in it and are fully protected from all harm. Nevertheless, they are thankful for the Purge in able to better their economy by wiping out the poor. The government not being responsible for this, portrays a sense of selfishness and a massive betrayal to the nation. The people who are rich are safe as well and may take part in the Purge if desired. But the rest of society in the lower class suffer no matter what without having the government’s assistance.
