I truly believe that the reason zombie movies & shows are so popular is because the dystopian chaos portrayed in them what we - as an overall society - wish would come to be. In fact, I think, we (the in general we) wish it would be as easy and as morally proper to dispose of our enemies as zombies are killed off in those shows or just like the zombies kill off surviving humans. Yes, I see it as there are two sides to those who want it to be like a zombie apocalypse, those who want to destroy zombies and those who want to be zombies and destroy humanity.
My guess is that many folks now believe that anyone with a view opposing their own amounts to little more than, if anything at all more than, a zombie or a human striving to survive. The scary thing is that many of the people within our society (and I mean this on a worldwide level to one degree or another depending on where you are) seemingly are becoming somewhat zombie like in as much as they seem to have no will of their own except for a basic one that consists of getting all they can get to stuff into their pie holes and are willing to absolutely destroy anyone to get what they want. These are the liberals among us. They are in a frenzied chaos tearing apart the remnants of what made us human and are doing so with zero regard for anyone & everyone else - thus just as a zombie would do they are essentially trying to kill off the rest of us (or at least are trying to kill off what constituted our societal makeup. Sooner or later, those among us who have not turned into zombies - the remaining people with some sort of constitutional backbone who are still in touch with their humanity - will start shooting the ones who have turned.
Sadly, the way things are now, I believe it inevitable that in order to save the human race, half or more of it will have to be wiped off the face of the earth. I don't want to see that happen, I hope it never does happen, but I feel it approaching like my bones feel a drastic change in the weather.
Well, it's just my thought on on what is going on in the world today. Let's hope I am wrong, dead wrong about it.
All the best,
