i really want to dig in to the new hunger games book i got today (hoo boy it's massive compared to the other ones in the series), but at the same time i don't want to spoil it by reading a fraction of a chapter at a time (as a result, having to reread things a few times) and not being able to fully understand the plot, or to be able to fully get into it

Creative professions are deeply undervalued. Artists, writers, and all kinds of creatives are underpaid. People shamelessly steal their work and treat it like a disposable commodity. People act as if it just magically appeared one day and don't bother to credit whoever made it.
Ironically, people everywhere keep trying to use that same work to make money, without having done any of the work themselves.
Our society dismisses creators while voraciously consuming the things they create.
