I recently received a reader copy of Brian Anse Patrick’s newest book Zombology: Zombies and the Decline of the West (and Guns), now available on Kindle.
The zombie phenomenon represents a disturbance in the Western Collective Unconscious caused by mass anxiety over the widely perceived decline of Western Civilization. The ravening zombie has emerged as a dominant archetype of our times, accessible to everyone, intuitively comprehensible, largely replacing the religious motifs that at one time spiritually informed Western Culture. The ultimate Death’s head symbol, the zombie haunts our dreams and mass entertainments. Zombie anxiety drives much modern thought and behavior.
Dr. Patrick is one of the scholars who gets it about guns. He’s one of the few on our side to be able to wade through the leftist academy and get his PhD before they realized he wasn’t really one of them. It will be interesting to see what he says about the Zombie craze.
