I have a theory as to why zombie apocalypse fiction is so popular right now. We are already zombies. Our society is brainless, soulless, and heartless. We are nothing but consumers of flesh and entertainment. We do not help one other, and through stupid, illogical policies are encouraged to stand by and do nothing for our fellow man. Over two hundred years ago, during the French Revolution, Edmond Burke said it best, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
Is that what we want? To be a society of straw men and women? To do nothing as we point fingers? To become brainless, soulless, heartless zombies consuming what the government and multimillion dollar companies spew out in order to numb The Mob?
Will you stand by, shrug, and say, ‘It’s not my job, not my responsibility’ as your fellow man, woman, or child suffers next you? Worrying —‘Oh but I don’t want to lose my job or get sued if I act.’
Is this who we are now? Is this the America of the 21st century? All this technology and knowledge only to become zombies.
Will you allow this evil to continue? Or will you stand and be counted? Will you act when it matters so you can face yourself in the mirror and face your Maker at the end of your days knowing you did your best to make a positive difference in the world?
I challenge you–What will you do today to not be a zombie?
