Seems like everywhere you go there is something about zombies. What I do not get is the recent fascination with these fictitious characters.
Why would anybody want to “reanimate” someone or something that is already dead? Are we as a society that debased? Afraid of death? Or more likely see ourselves in a world that we allow to define us.
The advent of cable television and more recently “reality t.v.” had thrusted upon us the way we should view ourselves. Shows like “Jersey Shore” and Catching Up With the Kardashians” as well as anything on MTV shove down our throats how people live. The cable news networks, i.e. FoxNews and MSNBC, are no better.
These programs fill people with feelings of inadequacy and self-loathing. Honestly, does one think that any of the Kardashians ever put in a hard day’s work? Do any of the cable networks ever show anything uplifting or positive?
The answer is some times but more often not. This is because bad news sells more advertising than good news. It is all about the Almighty Dollar. Do not let some conservative preacher tell you otherwise because these charlatans worship at the altar of money. Sorry God.
We have allowed ourselves to become zombies to consumerism and shallowness. This is probably the inspiration for all the zombie paraphernalia out there. Hopefully, humanity will one day wake up to life and stop continuing on as the “walking dead”.
