When you’re surrounded by so much death the mind becomes numb with shock. We have been so desensitized to violence that after awhile some deaths turns out to be pretty funny in retrospect. Or at least for those who see the incident from the outside. Then there are examples that just anger you, especially when you’re one of the survivors out here in the battle field.
Before the war it was not uncommon for children who grew up in a life privileged and without hardship from physical means, such as getting food, clothing and shelter, to lash out at their social standing and make attempts to stand up for the “little person”. This cycle was repeated through every generation with a mix of well meaning or outraged rebellious youths and their championed cause who would stand back in awe, dismay or disgust watching their defenders. The reaction achieved often depended as much upon the method of their display as it did on their actual results. Here in the new world we see a repeat of that through information that has been smuggled out of the Green Zone and brought to me.
Safe behind fenced off and patrolled borders privileged citizens are rising up and demanding their government do something to help the suffering poor people on our side of the fence. To quell the concerns of these well meaning and well paying citizens and to quiet any chance of political assassination in their character the government has started a propaganda program to assure the sheltered few that the masses are both in no great danger and being cared for.
Scientists in the Green Zone are being shown on news outlets proclaiming the virus that causes the zombie plague is merely an illness of the joints. It causes stiffening to where victims cannot bend their limbs and require assistance. Eventually signs of a flesh wasting illness appear giving the undead like appearance. Assuring the sheltered that those outside the Green Zone, while extremely contagious are not in any real danger has become the new method of quieting their consciences. This campaign is being added by the media controlled by the government.
The latest piece is a film that has come out called “Harold’s Going Stiff”. It shows a love story with comedy aspects that is supposed to be a documentary of a real situation that happened out here beyond the walls of the Green Zone. We have to survive if only so that the real story of what occurred out here is written in history.
I give you the tenth episode of Zombie Survival Bloopers:
