People ask me, "T-Bolt? Why is the Zombie menace being kept on the QT, hush-hush, from the general public, with only a few folks like yourself on the GEOrge RoMERO teams (Ghoul Elimination Organization. Rapid Multi-Eradication Recon Ops)? And if it is so top secret, why do you keep telling us about it?"
I'll answer the last part first. Because: I'm just some faceless Sumdood on the internet that writes poorly. Who is gonna believe me?
But that also goes toward answering the first part. The reason the Zombie menace is kept from the majority of the world population is to avoid a panic. Especially if we can keep it contained. There was a lesson learned from the Cold War. The specter of annihilation from thermonuclear war was a drag on the populace's collective morale. Folks worried about it and the stress made them jumpy and a worse citizenry But the RoMERO honchos know they are going to have to tell people sometime. Not the least of reason that if a Level 4 Outbreak ever came about, folks would feel betrayed and angry that they were kept in the dark. The thing is... they are ALREADY telling you.
Remember my post about what causes more zombie movies/book/stories to get released? Is it a Republican administration or world upheaval in politics or economics? Neither. It's because we have insiders in the entertainment industry encouraging the making of more media with a zombie theme. And they are all instructional. Like little scenarios to get people's head in the game without knowing the threat is very real. It's quite clever, really. Once people are more inured to the horror they can come clean. And if a Level 4 were to happen NOW, well, there'd be some fallout about the secrecy, but it would have been worse were it not for instructional texts and books and children's lit and films. (try not to shoot Bill Murray.)
Don't believe me? Ye of little faith. Want proof? Go up to a non-gunnie non-zombie person at work. Ask them what the way to kill a zombie? How does a person 'catch' the zombie infection? 9 times out of 10 they'll tell you remove the head or destroy the brain and avoid getting bitten. See?
Now if we can just spread the word about eschewing shotguns...
