Zombies are a great rhetorical allegory, speaking directly to the political climate we currently live in.
Think about the parallels....
Zombies? The welfare hordes. The "unproductive" opportunists.
The survivors? The 1%. The heavily armed "good guys".
The question, in my mind... is this allegory in response to the people and demand, or social engineering meant to enhance extant stereotypes?
The irony? According to the ratings, it turns out that the allegorical zombies tend to like watching their fictional representations.
