Did you ever wonder what’s behind the psychology of the “Zombie” genre? You know, that scenario of human survivors battling the animated dead? Everybody, EVERYBODY identifies with the uninfected healthy people, but NOBODY identifies with the poor zombies! This begs the question; in every human vs zombie portrayal, why are there so many zombies and so few healthy survivors? How is this still attractive?
This train of thought is evident in every day life, as well. The enthusiastic supporters of the shark-tank-last-man-standing-hyper-capitalist paradigm, especially the very poor, in Zombie Apocalypse fashion, identify with the super rich billionaire class.
Where does this delusional lottery mentality come from? The Kochs and Waltons will be comfortable and cozy counting their money inside zombie proof bunkers and we, the walking dead, are left lurching and snarling outside the walls. Just a thought….
