The zombie phenomenon must be at the saturation point. Sprint now has a spokezombie.
I hope that this signals the near end of the zombie fad, because I’ve had just about all I can stand of the undead. The fascination with zombies and vampires has eluded me. I mean, I really don’t get the celebration of undeadness. From my view, the only place in storytelling for creatures that are undead would be to use them as a foil to point the way toward life.
But that’s not how the secular culture handles zombies and vampires. Creatures that used to symbolize evil and destruction have been rehabilitated into misunderstood heroes. And it troubles me.
Only a culture in which evil and destruction are considered normal could embrace such creatures as if they were good. Only a culture that has lost sight of what true life entails could celebrate the undead.
The people themselves are spiritually undead, cultural zombies shuffling mindlessly through a dismal landscape, devouring minds and souls and leaving destruction in their wake.
There’s no point prepping for the zombie apocalypse. It’s already here.
