Interesting post relating modern zombie-lore with Marxist theory.
In the mid–1800s, Karl Marx wrote The Communist Manifesto within the context of the Industrial Revolution. The epic struggle of zombies versus humans in The Walking Dead can help illustrate the principles of each orientation. Capitalism, according to Marx, reached into the far corners of the globe to dominate markets, exploit workers, and destroy local culture. The zombies in The Walking Dead have completely overtaken urban Atlanta, and it’s not long before hoards of walkers begin pillaging the surrounding small towns and countryside as well. The zombies symbolize capitalism’s insatiable need to constantly expand, exploiting (or feeding on, more appropriately) people to reach its end goal, which is merely to sustain itself.
Now ironically the China commies are the biggest USD zombies on the planet... go figure.
Its going to be interesting to see how these zombies react to being deprived of their USDs if Trump is able to pull it off. Might become very unpredictable.
