Why are Americans interested in Zombies? Why they love Zombies so much? Simple Zombies represent the unknown masses and their eternal consumption. Zombies represent our unending appetites for consumerism. Some people fear that they will be consumed. During a zombie plague, no one has to worry about going to work, let alone being there on time. It will be great to fight back against the hordes of humanity. It’s a great chance to decapitate our ex-wife, or pushing our boss down a flight of stairs. None of these things are acceptable now, but during the apocalypse, not only are they okay, they are actually encouraged. Living through an apocalypse would give someone an opportunity to be a hero on perhaps a daily basis. Once the zombie plague starts, all material possessions are up for grabs.
