There might be something to that Zombie Apocalypse thing. In such a scenario–once considered comic book or nuts–the inscrutable & surreal suddenly begin to make sense.
Think about it: Trump as a presidential candidate boasting about his private parts & sexual offenses; Kissinger still crawling the earth at 93; Russian bombers & Putin heralded as freedom fighters; ISIS taking over several countries without even an air fleet or a navy; Saudi Arabia, Israel, Russia, the Philippines, India, & US on the UN Human Rights Council; Bono designated a Woman of the Year.
If it looks more like a Zombie Apocalypse than 4-million years of human evolution, maybe that’s what’s really going on. Anyone got a better explanation? Or is it just neoliberalism, the barbaric phase of capitalism?
