Fear of Zombies and Democracy

You probably already know about my interest in zombie attacks and democracy's failures. It wasn't until I recently that I realized these two preoccupations are related. The threat of zombies, like that of any democratic government, is in the masses. In the world of the undead, one zombie is not a threat, but they have strength in numbers. The problem with democracy is similar. Large numbers of diverse people with special interests trying to decide exactly what they want from government. Voters are easily influenced, or infected, by their biases and can quickly turn against their fellow citizens.

You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
