"When people say 'I'd love to be in the zombie apocalypse!' They're basically saying, 'I'd love to go on a killing spree and not feel bad about it'"

Apocalyptic literature seems to have a special draw to those who like frontiers. The United States grew up as a frontier-country, and that spirit still has traction in our psyche.
What the zombie apocalypse, doomsday, and the breakdown of society do, is wipe away a century of barbed wire fences--returning the atmosphere to that of a frontier where we can forge our own destinies and stuff.
