As I watch the hordes of hideous brain dead zombies shuffling across the apocalyptic landscape seeking to satiate their basest cravings I can’t help but see the parallels with the millions of mindless tattooed obese slobs waddling across mall parking lots past vacant store fronts staring zombielike at their iGadgets as they seek to satisfy their basest desires at Macy’s and Chipotle. A virus has overspread our country causing a vast swath of the population to gratuitously assuage their every want without thinking of the consequences. The sickness is caused by being imprisoned for twelve years in government run public schools, watching thousands of hours of propaganda emitted by the corporate media, viewing hundreds of brain cell destroying reality TV shows, reading and sending thousands of texts and tweets, and being overwhelmed by the delusional belief spending more than they make, saving nothing, and piling up mountains of debt is the path to success in our contaminated society.
Pretty good article and I agree with most of it. Nevertheless I just cant get too excited about things that I cannot control. Could an average citizen of Rome that was living in the midst of its decline change things? The events that are taking place in the US as it continues its decline are events that have occurred in every declining empire. Time and effort are better spent protecting ones family and ensuring sufficient precautions are taken to a have a plan and to be prepared to control what one can control in ones own life.
