Actually, I'm not so convinced. There's a fundamental difference between zombies vs. aliens, vampires and monsters.
Aliens, vampires and monsters, although powerful in portrayal, do not exist in overwhelming numbers. The mindset with aliens, vampires and mosters is
to defeat them; the mindset with zombies is completely different. Zombies can't be 'defeated', there's too many of them...they just keep coming.
Survival against zombies is a defensive effort, not an offensive one; an inward looking effort as opposed to an outward looking one. The zombies are
the vast majority, and survivors are the microscopic minority. It's a completely different perspective.
To me zombies represent political correctness and socialism taken to its logical inevitability, albeit extreme. The "survivors" are the only ones
left who can think for themselves and be independent. The mindless zombies are controlled by a cruel and unseen power.
Just think for a moment about the abstract irony of how one kills a zombie; the only way to kill one is to kill what's left of its brain. In other
words, only those left who can think must completely destroy what's left of the brains of those who cannot. The irony contained in just that thought
alone shouldn't go unnoticed.
So with that thought I will make a prediction. My prediction is, it won't be long before the socialist left begin advocating for the banning of the
whole 'zombie' genre (in film, books and gaming). They will do this under the guise of eliminating "violence for the sake of violence", but that
won't be the real reason. The real reason will be the 'zombie' genre represents a threat; the message is all wrong, they can't have the masses being
perceived as the bad-guys and the survivors being the good-guys. Independence and self sufficiency is a bad thing in their eyes, and it defeats their
purpose (not to mention their gravy train).
