Zombie apocalypse stories can teach us a lot about ourselves and our society. The thought of losing everything, makes us realize how much we depend on each other, what we know, and even on technology. We also realize what we miss in our culture and what we take for granted. Mostly, zombie stories, such as the Walking Dead, give us hope that humans can survive, even when facing the most terrifying and relentless. And sometimes, the most frightening enemy isn’t actually the zombies, but other people. The Walking Dead is just one example of our fascination with zombies and the idea of a zombie apocalypse.
