I am going to make this post about the real zombie outbreak we are in today. I will show how this post is about that. Zombies being us, just asleep,
the regular people going about our day to day action (in the elite perspective) living in primitive emotion and patterned action. (less evolved apes)
I do not claim this is the intent of the OP, only that it is a common analogy not spoken of in public consciousness
Surviving a Zombie Outbreak
Zombies have very infectious bodily fluids.
They breed and spread, out numbering the elite, hence need for population control.
Zombies do not breathe.
Do not speak out
Zombies feel no pain.
Are not empathetic to the feelings of others either.
Zombies lack the ability to use items (tools, weapons, door handles, etc).
Or weapons of money, propaganda, manipulation, and distortion.
Zombies are emotionless.
Not Living but numb to the realities of the world, asleep.
Zombies can only be "killed" by destroying the brain.
They must destroy thought and critical thinking to end a zombie that goes after the elite.
Zombies are not susceptible to "holy items" or "prayer".
the tools of faith and teachings of goodness empower zombies. It is one of our strengths.
Zombies will alert other zombies through their moans and wails.
We Zombies will try and spread the message pointing out the threat from those that claim to live. Although they will only sound like complaints and
screams of emotion, not knowledge and thought.
Zombies do not heal.
ya wanna bet
Zombies are poor climbers.
They do not follow the rules set by the elites to reach the highest levels of power, note how this only belongs in his list if you look at this as an
Zombies are relatively slow due to poor muscle coordination.
They do not coordinate there efforts, they are kept fighting among themselves.
Zombies do not appear to use their circulatory system.
They do not spread information efficiently. They keep there thoughts to themselves
Zombies appear to repulse almost all living creatures (including bacteria).
Only if the living are considered the elite, the self proclaimed eliete are repulsed by common people.
Zombies never fear.
We have faith, the opposite of fear.
The Problem With Guns
Ask anyone off the street what the best weapon is to use against zombies and 9/10 times they will say "a shotgun". However, there's a few real
big problems with guns, and especially shotguns.
People on the street, zombies, think the elite use force, they use control. Note that the best weapon is the one outlined by Donald Rumsfield on 9/10
and the aftermath of control and manipulation of the next day. The attack was not their weapon, it was using it to control through fear that was the
They're loud, and will alert every zombie for miles to your presence.
Force does not work because it wakes up more zombies to the true threat from the elite.
They require ammunition.
They need constant reason to use force to be able to justify it to society, things like 9/11
They require reloading.
Force is control through fear, fear must be maintained at all times to work.
Every shot must be a successful head shot (much harder than it sounds).
Got to go for the leaders, or the thinking ones.
They can jam, or otherwise break.
Force can even be overcome by many zombies
Further, shotguns might not even hit, much less, penetrate the skull, unless a slug is used in lieu of shot.
Non targeted attacks, mass propaganda will miss many targets, so sometimes specifically target threats against individuals and groups are used.
For those that would like to give the "silencer" example, I submit to you the fact that silencers don't work like they do in the movie, and a
silenced gun still produces about 50dB of sound, which can be heard from 500 ft away on a quiet street.
Even an attempted cover up of the use of force, leads to more being woken up.
However, rifles can provide a great method of taking out zombies at a distance if one can remain out of their reach. A disciplined amateur marksman
could take out thousands of zombies, provided they had enough ammunition, were out of reach of the zombies, and kept aiming for the head.
Ah the trick, stay in the shadows of secrecy, where the zombies can not see where the real threat is.
Pistols are really only good as a backup weapon or a suicide weapon in the event you or another mate are bitten.
Well suicide is never the answer, but use of this loud force would lead to the self destruction of elite.
Fight On Your Terms
Only a bloody idiot would charge zombies on their level and try to take them out like Conan or Arnold. If you have to get from Point A to Point B, and
there's thousands of zombies in the way, your best bet is to sneak past them. If you are discovered, then run. Zombies (probably) lack the muscular
balance and coordination necessary to run, and further, their muscles will deteriorate with use and not be healed (which is what makes us living
humans stronger). Meaning zombies are actively destroying themselves merely by walking around. They are, however, hopelessly fixated, walking in more
or less a straight line when shuffling after their prey.
Read the previous paragraph with my analogy it fits.
Therefore, learn to use the landscape.
Zombies can easily be "herded", the problem is to avoid being surrounded.
Herded like sheep.
Learn to use elevation to its maximum advantage.
Use the powers higher status has
Do not, however, underestimate the power of a solid wall of people several people deep.
He even uses people here instead of zombies! He also admits the power of a coordinated zombie awakening
Fire is a Bad Idea
The passions and the fire of the knowledge of what is right, the strength and courage to walk with that fire, is not something the elite like in us
(more to come...)
