When we think of the zombie apocalypse we think of viruses, cosmic radiation and excitement. Someone on the news saying “Remove the head or destroy the brain.” Governments on the brink of collapse. Slaughter, madness, mayhem and shooting some fat bloke in the leg for his supplies. All the usual stuff we readâ€¦Â But what if the Zompocs is started by one of our own Governments?
Over the last few years you may have noticed that Governments have taken a greater hold on our lives. In Britain most types of guns have been banned. Knives are seen as the work of Satan. There’s a CCTV camera every twenty yards. When you go into a shop to buy something they want ALL your details (including your shoe size in some!) And they want permission to shut down BBM and Twitter at a momentâ€™s notice. One of the off shoots of this big brother style control is students marching into London with the hump because the Government can no longer afford to pay for them to go to university. (Bankers, look at the trouble you’ve caused!) A small scale Zompocs would be perfect for a control crazed Government because unlike us zombie slayers most people aren’t prepared for one. So eventually they will run to the Government begging for help, and protection. Marshal Law will be imposed along with curfews; other civil liberties will be squeezed. When the zombies are dealt with and shopping centers are reopened, the civilians are again happy right up until they realize that “for their own safety” certain civil liberties won’t be returning. What the fucks happened here?
Another use for zombies would be to keep a country busy and destroy its infrastructure. In todayâ€™s world our American friends are the main superpower. (Maybe not in the money department) but like the superpowers of the past such as The Roman Empire or the British Empire. Many would like to knock the United States down a peg or two. Â Thatâ€™s when terrorism and terrorist countries come into play (you know who you are.) Wouldn’t a countrywide zombie outbreak in the states reflect some kind of terrorist attack? A country in complete panic. Tearing itself apart. American forces recalled from around the world to deal with the problem. The next thing you know Russians are marching across Europe. China starts invading places like Taiwan and Japan. Terrorist cells start popping up and destroying everything they come across. Countries around the world are calling the United States desperate for help, but all their getting is:
“I’m sorry. But no oneâ€™s available to take your call at the moment because we’re fighting for our lives against the rampaging undead. If you leave a message after the beep we’ll get back to you as soon as we canâ€¦. BEEP!
SHIT! By the time the United States gets their zombie problem under control, they’ll turn around to find theyâ€™re surrounded by Russians and Chinese looking for more land to conquer. NUCLEAR ANNIHILATION!!! Christ!
So remember to keep your eyes open when the zeds show up. There may be something far more sinister behind them.
