I love Zombie movies because they provide a much needed escape from manufactured stress.What is manufactured stress? Manufactured stress examples: getting a speeding ticket,deadlines, getting hit with an over draft fee,unnecessary paperwork, taxes, realizing you can’t afford to save for retirement; as apposed to real stress- being shot at, starvation, being attacked by a wild animals or a zombie!!!! …..Manufactured stress is the price we pay for living in a civilized society but is it worth it?
If a zombie apocalypse were to happen manufactured stress would disappear. We would be left with only real stress, which is a good thing because evolution had prepared our bodies and brain to handle real stress. When we experience stress we have the fight or flight response. Our heart rate increases; our eyes dilate, adrenaline starts pumping and we get ready to run or fight. When we experience manufactured stress we don’t really know what to do. We can’t run from a speeding ticket or beat-up IRS agents. Thats socially unexceptable We’re stuck with manufactured stress unless something like a zombie apocalypse happens and if you have student loans like me your probably looking forward to one. In zombie movies no one owes tax or has to do paperwork. I can dig it!!!! Bring on the zombie apocalypse!!
