When you’re surrounded by so much death the mind becomes numb with shock. We have been so desensitized to violence that after a while some deaths turns out to be pretty funny in retrospect. Or at least for those who see the incident from the outside. Within the Green Zones life carries on more or less the same as before with only minor changes. There are limits to your travel, as many exotic locations are now infested with that nasty virus that nobody likes to talk about. Services are lower as there are fewer middle class and lower class residents to assist however goods are in great supply given the lower population demanding them. Goods are restricted to previously manufactured goods as factories are not up and running creating new items with few exceptions. Companies are now forced to look at the goods they previously had and find interesting new ways of selling them. Here’s an example from the automobile industry of marketing capitalizing on the outbreak.

When you’re surrounded by so much death the mind becomes numb with shock. We have been so desensitized to violence that after a while some deaths turns out to be pretty funny in retrospect. Or at least for those who see the incident from the outside. Campaigns within the Green Zones continue to focus on assuring the privileged population that despite rumors and even proof of the terrors we face those living outside the zone are doing well and good on our own. Rumors of vaccinations continue to contribute to not only reassurance for the gifted behind the walls but desperate raids against the walls from this side of those who are infected but want to live. To date there have been no reports of successful raider breeches into the Green Zone. Rumors of some medicine being brought from the Green Zone and into the outside world has been confirmed but only by the work of thieves and smugglers.

Here is just one more example of the work within the Green Zones to down play our day-to-day lives into something both comical and cute.

When I was a child Bambi made me cry. Perhaps it is my generation but I know far too many around my age who saw as a young child Bambi and the iconic scene of his mother’s death caused tears. Perhaps it was that childhood trauma that has caused me to have some measure of glee from this video. Whomever envisioned this masterpiece might be trying to prepare children for our new reality.

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. While this doesn’t involve death, and it’s too old to specifically involve the dead (while not being old enough to involve ancient records of previous outbreaks) but it is downright creepy. Someone dug up this old file and has been spreading it through the CVC lines as a way to share with children the importance of not biting. Not only might your child be mistaken for a zee, but who knows what he or she will pick up biting random people.

I have to be honest with you here. Even as a child I found Mr. Rogers to be more than a little creepy. His puppets were creepy, he was creepy and so were his sweaters! This clip has done nothing to help fix that sensation.

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. Morbid humor was on the rise before the zees all woke up and started chomping on people. For a brief time it faded off because reality is rarely funny unless you truly are twisted to some extent. I don’t judge, I find reality extremely funny, but then again I am more than a little twisted.

This little piece was sent to me by someone who used to focus on cute cartoons involving kittens or puppies or something. I don’t know, I never paid attention to their interests before. I guess the new world has changed their outlook on things and for once we have something in common. So I tip my hat to my friend out there and ask the general public, “too soon?”

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. I think what I regret the most when looking back upon the weeks before the zee outbreak became common knowledge was the offbeat attitude we held towards the warning signs.

Reports of people previously known as rational or at least normal changing their behavior were ignored or found comical. Attacks where individuals began biting others, especially on or near the head were written off as quirky incidents of the deranged. Those who were bitten never sought out medical help which while not curing them might have contained the virus from further infecting others.

Such incidents were often reported by the news as random incidents both humorous and non life threatening.

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.
