The Zombie Apocalypse is Real, and it’s already started

Zombie Apocalypse

The Zombie Apocalypse is not only a very real possibility; I believe it’s already upon us.

While it might not be the typical scenario that you’re used to seeing depicted in Hollywood movies, the reality of the situation is no less frightening.


Article Overview: What we are going to Talk About


A look at Real-World Zombies: Separating Fact from Fiction

Of all the horror tropes, zombies might be the most accessible because the idea of the dead rising from their graves dates back to when early man was living in caves. Since not much is known about what happens to us when we die, the idea that corpses could somehow be reanimated is something that has always captured people’s imaginations.

Are Zombies Real?

Before we jump into why we believe we may be in the midst of a modern-day zombie apocalypse, lets look at real examples of zombies in nature. Yes, you heard me right. There are actually numerous real-world examples that closely parallel what we see in zombie books and movies.

In nature, we see multiple animals, insects, bacteria and Fungi that not only act like zombies but can turn their hosts into zombies.

Zombie Ants: Ophiocordyceps unilateralis — the zombie-ant fungus

Mind controlled zombies infected with some sort of zombie-virus don’t just live in the world of science fiction. In fact, in the animal kingdom we can find a real-life example in tropical countries like Brazil.

Carpenter ants in these environments can become infected with Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, the zombie-ant fungus. The parasitic fungus can manipulate the brains of ants, turning them into mindless zombies that obey and work for the fungus.

When the ant becomes infected, the fungus quickly spreads through muscle fibers in the ant’s body, releasing chemicals that takeover the ant’s central nervous system. The zombie-ant fungus forces the ant to leave the safety of its nest and climb up vegetation and stop at 25 centimeters – an area where the fungus thrives. The fungus eventually completely takes over the ant, grows a long capsule of spores out if it’s head, and then rains down more fungal spores infecting other ants on the ground below. 

Zombie Wasps

In nature, a number of different Wasps seem to act as host zombies what insect other insects. Take, for instance, the parasitoid wasp Glyptapanteles. This Wasp lays its eggs inside living caterpillars who then mindlessly guard its invading hosts eggs.

The parasitic jewel wasp, lays eggs inside cockroaches’ abdomens, which then hatch and eat the roach from the inside out.

What about Human Zombies? Are there examples of people being turned into Zombies?

Believe it or not, historical records record multiple examples of zombie-like people who sound very much like Hollywood-style zombies. We also know of numerous bacteria and funguses that can infect the human brain and change the way a person thinks and acts.

Zombified Cat Owners: Toxoplasma gondii the Brain-Controlling Cat Poop Parasite

For years people have made fun of cat owners, often joking about the crazy cat lady down the block. But those jokes, sadly, may have a basis in reality.

Recently, scientists have discovered tiny organisms carried by house cats that can infect the human brain causing everything from altered brain chemistry and changes in personality to schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and Parkinson’s disease.

Degenerative Brain Diseases

Another cause for concern when it comes to real-life zombies is the idea of a genetic mutation of an existing disease causing zombie-like behavior.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is a genetic disorder that can also be contracted through eating cows infected with mad cow disease. It’s a degenerative brain disease that causes dementia and death, and one of the characteristics is sudden jerky movements that might resemble those of a zombie.

Any kind of disease that impacts the ability to think is cause for concern. When people can’t control their behavior, they can put themselves at risk, which means you’re at risk, too.

Confusion could cause someone to step on the gas instead of the break, or hallucinations could lead someone to start attacking people around them. Whether they’re walking down the street or driving a car if someone isn’t able to process decisions it could spell disaster for innocent bystanders.

Incidentally, because Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease can be contracted through a contaminated food supply, imagine how easily it could be weaponized with the introduction of contaminants into the food chain. It’s for this reason that people need to be prepared for just about anything.

Haitian zombies

As crazy as it sounds, there are documented medical cases that suggest some sort of zombification in humans in Haiti. Rumors of people rising from the grave, and actual medical records of it happening in Haiti, have intrigued people for years.

According to Harvard Magazine, in 1980, two women turned up in other villages saying they were zombies. In the same year, in northern Haiti, the local peasants claimed to have found a group of zombies wandering aimlessly in the fields. AT THE Centre de Psychiatric et Neurologie in Port­ au-Prince, Dr. Lamarque Douyon, a Haitian­-born, Canadian-trained psychiatrist, has been systematically investigating all reports of zombies since 1961. Though convinced zombies were real, he had been unable to find a scientific explanation for the phenomenon.

Anthropologist and ethnobotanist Wade Davis Ph.D, has spent years investigating a possible scientific explanation for the alleged existence of zombies in Haiti. While studying the phenomenon, he discovered a powder used by Voodoo practitioners that he believes is responsible for some of the cases.

A powder? That sounds like something we are seeing here in the United States!

Bath Salts and Bad Drug Trips

It’s no secret that drugs are bad for you, but sometimes impurities in drugs can cause erratic behavior beyond the drug’s expected side effects. There are also stories of people experimenting with drugs for the first time and having horrible reactions that land them in all kinds of trouble.

Zombie behavior is a side effect of bad drug trips and super strains of meth and other drugs that fall into the “uppers” category. There are stories all over the internet of “zombie attacks” that see people high on drugs who either exhibit superhuman strength or abilities or who do unspeakable things as a result of the drugs.

Some of the more well known zombie attack stories include the man who was high on synthetic pot who attacked his neighbors and ate their dog while the poor creature was still alive. Another instance was the man in Dallas who stripped naked and jumped head-first into the sunroof of a passing car and started attacking the female driver. There are also several stories of people who have been high on drugs who start eating the faces of the people they attack.

The problem with people who are on drugs is that there is no reasoning with them. Not only do the drugs take away their fear and inhibitions while giving them enhanced strength, but their ability to think is also gone. What’s worse is that they might be hallucinating, in which case they might perceive you as the threat, which means you are the target.

You can’t talk people down in these situations, so your only hope is to subdue them before they attack. But be ready for a fight, and be ready to do whatever it takes to defend yourself even if that means using lethal force as a means of self-preservation.

What would happen if zombies were real?

These days one of the most popular shows on television is The Walking Dead, a show about what happens after the dead come alive and civilization collapses. During the first season, the survivors head to the Center for Disease Control headquarters in Atlanta for answers and find that the government is as helpless as everyone else. It’s no wonder, then, that the CDC uses zombie outbreaks to illuminate the importance of being for emergencies.

Zombies are so terrifying because they are people who were dead who have come back to life. Some versions depict slow-moving members of the undead who wander aimlessly while others move quickly in search of their next victim. Some zombies are after brains, and some just want a bite of living flesh no matter where it comes from. The only way to kill them is to damage their brains, which can be a challenge.

While the odds of Hollywood-style, real-life zombie attack might seem nonexistent, there’s a good reason that zombies and disaster preparation go hand in hand. A plague of the undead would be the ultimate test of human survival, and so it makes sense to say that if you’re prepared for a zombie attack, you’re prepared for anything.

Just because “Hollywood zombies” don’t exist doesn’t mean that there aren’t similar threats to your family’s survival and well-being. While Hollywood zombies may not be exist, there are real situations that mimic zombie attacks, from people high on drugs to people who are so preoccupied with their phones, gadgets and what’s going on in “reality tv” that they might as well be among the undead.

Cultural Zombification

Activists

Our society has degraded so far down into the gutter that today’s youth will do anything to escape from reality, including taking drugs that are literally turning them into real-life walking zombies. It’s really a sad state of affairs, but it should serve as a wake-up call to those who are still in denial as to where our society is heading – The Zombie Apocalypse.

I know that’s ridiculous, right? Wrong!

Now I’m not talking about the Walking Dead here. I’m talking about real-life zombies who are so whacked out on drugs, television, our sick society, and countless other degenerating factors, that they have morphed into mindless, soulless beasts that no longer care about their fellow human beings.

Soulless Media Consumed Creatures

Evil Hollywood celebrities

Think I’m exaggerating? Have you taken a good look at society lately? People are literally willing to literally kill each other over an iPhone. Forget the mindless idiots who sit in line for ten hours when the stupid phone hits the market – because heaven forbid they are caught walking around with a phone that’s more than six months old – people are actually killing each other over iPhones.

But it’s not just iPhones; it’s our whole sick society. We have a culture that’s become obsessed with anything immoral, and everything violent.

If you think the Zombie Apocalypse is just science fiction, take a look at what’s happening on the streets of Chicago. In my opinion, Chicago is a thousand times worse than a Zombie movie, and it could be a good look at what our future has in store for us.

Between 2016-2016, 10762 wee shot in the streets of Chicago. That’s 9.82 people a day! Many of these people were shot and killed simply for walking over some imaginary line in Chicago’s notorious gang filled neighborhoods.

While some would like to pass these incidents of as anomalies, or something that only affects urban areas, the problem is much more than an inner-city problem.

This culture of violence has invaded every aspect of our lives. These aren’t poor urban kids in some neighborhood that you’ll never have to walk through; these are people of every race, and from every corner of America. Watch the first five minutes of your local news tonight, and then tell me I’m wrong.

Dangerous Drugged Out Drones

If you haven’t heard of drugs like Bath Salts, Synthetic Marijuana, and Molly, it’s something that you need to be aware of – especially if you have younger kids.

These dangerous drugs are being popularized and promoted by people like Kanye West and Miley Cyrus, both of whom glorify the dangerous substances in their songs. Drugs like Molly are being pitched as a pure form of Ecstasy, and these other commonly sold synthetic concoctions are being marketed as legal alternatives to street drugs.

In reality, most of these substances are the same chemicals that have caused people to go crazy and literally try to eat other people’s faces off.

Smartphone Zombies

Survival and the drive to stay alive is supposed to be an inherent and basic human trait. However, we live in a world that is fast becoming a threat to that basic trait. When people start falling into open trenches, getting too close to wild animals, walking into traffic or falling off of cliffs to get the perfect selfie or because they’re completely caught up in their game of Candy Crush, well, you know that’s a sign of the end times.

Smartphone Zombies are a real threat. And they’re the ones you’ll encounter the most frequently because they’re everywhere.

Many Smartphone Zombies make decisions based on social media likes. If the photo will generate a lot of likes, what difference does it make if you move past the safety barrier to get close to the jaguar for a better picture?

Not only is there a threat from people who are caught up in their phones, but there’s a very real threat from people who have become so reliant upon their phones that they have lost the ability to function. Consider an emergency situation where cell phone towers are down, and you have to drive out of the city. Can you drive without your GPS system? Can you manage basic directions without your phone? That could be a real problem, especially if you’re prepared and you have to not only worry about the threat itself but to also worry about navigating the people who don’t have a clue.

It sounds harsh, but try walking down a street without running into someone who isn’t looking up from his phone. Now imagine that person being in your way when you’re trying to get to safety. Yeah. You don’t want that guy in your way. Best to steer clear of people who are fixated with their smartphones.

The Zombie Apocalypse is Here, and it’s only going to get Worse.

Tactical Riot Police

This isn’t a science fiction movie; It’s a reality.

In my opinion, our society is just one disaster away from total collapse. Take a look at disasters like Hurricane Sandy and Katrina, and then imagine what would happen if our country was to face a similar, but prolonged nationwide disaster.

It’s not the Walking Dead who you’re going to have to worry about.

  • It’s the 70% of Americans who rely on prescription drugs to function; the ones that will be going through massive withdrawals once they can’t obtain their medications.
  • It’s your neighbors who will be killing each other for food and water; because they thought watching reality T.V. was more important than preparing for what’s coming.
  • It’s the over 50% of Americans who depend on Government assistance to live.
  • It’s the unprepared masses who are so reliant on modern technology that they actually admit they wouldn’t last over 2 weeks without electricity.
  • It’s the average American Citizen who has forgotten the skills they need to survive without running to the local Walmart.

Did you know the average American spends more than 40 hours a week watching TV? That’s more time than someone spends working at a full-time job!  According to a study commissioned by Nokia, the average cell phone user checks their phone at least 150 times a day, or approximately once every 6 minutes.

But it’s even worse when you take a look at the next generation, who spends more than 71/hours a day consuming digital media. Is it any wonder why society is devolving into a bunch of zombies? We have a world full of people who have literally checked out of reality.

How to survive a zombie apocalypse

If you have been stockpiling supplies in case of a natural disaster or attack, then you’re ahead of the game. Well done. Now it’s time to think about how you’d stay safe if faced with one of these real-life zombie situations.

When it comes to people on bath salts or on a bad drug trip, you need to incapacitate them as soon as possible. While they might be impervious to pain, it doesn’t mean that they’re impervious to injury. If possible, use something to hit them across the legs. If they can’t get up, they can’t chase or attack you. The problem with people who are high on drugs is that a half dozen police officers could be on top of them and they’re still fighting. That’s why disabling their legs is your best choice.

As with any kind of attack, keep basic self-defense techniques in mind: Go for the eyes, the groin, or use a key as a puncturing weapon to incapacitate them. This works for people who might be suffering from diseases as well. They might not be able to stop themselves or are completely unaware of their actions, and so the best thing to do is limit their ability to hurt you.

When it comes to the Smartphone Zombies, make sure you’re being twice as aware when you encounter them in your day to day life. Watch for people not paying attention and make sure that if something happens you’re two steps ahead. If a Smartphone Zombie walks in front of a car and the car swerves to avoid an accident, make sure that you’re already jumping out of the way.

How To Protect Yourself

  • Take the threat seriously. I know we’ve had a little fun here using the Zombie Apocalypse to illustrate the problem, but nevertheless, the problem is serious and it affects us all. Don’t forget, during a disaster people (especially the Zombies) are going to be one of the top threats you face.
  • Don’t be a Mindless Moron. Preparedness is the key to staying alive during any disaster. If you spend most of your time playing video games, staring at a screen, or whacked out on some type of drug, you might want to rethink your choices. Don’t let yourself become one of the zombies.
  • Do Something to Prepare. From learning how to hunt and fish, to taking a weekend hike or camping trip, there are a million fun things you can do that will also help prepare you for tough times.
  • Pay Attention to Your Kids. If you have kids, please pay attention to what’s actually going on around them. The amount of harmful garbage they’re exposed to on a daily basis far exceeds what most of us experienced throughout our entire childhood.

As with everything else that comes with preparing for disaster, thinking ahead and being vigilant is always your best defense. When it comes to real-life “zombie” threats, it’s a matter of paying attention. Watch the people around you. When you spot erratic behavior have a plan in place of how you’ll deal with any threat that might arise. The more you can stay ahead of the threats, the better off you’ll be in the long run and the more likely you are to survive.

The Thing About Zombies

There are several real-life scenarios that mimic zombie behavior. People who are on drugs, especially bad strains of drugs, can often exhibit superhuman strength while also being impervious to pain. There are also degenerative brain disorders that can mimic zombie behaviors, and there is also the case of people who are so absorbed with their smartphones that they aren’t paying attention to anything.

When people aren’t in control of their mental faculties and therefore can’t be reasoned with, they’re a huge threat to your safety and well-being, and that’s why you need to be prepared.

  1. I couldn’t agree with this more. I’ve been telling everyone for years that the greatest threat we face is the threat caused by our society. I read your article awhile back about people being a threat during times of crisis and it really changed the way I prepare for disasters and the future.

      • OMG, PLEASE READ AND YOU WILL HERE THE REAL REASONS WE ALREADY ARE IN FEAR! zombie Apocalypse began in 1946,i am the product of what now exists.I was tested and invested in the 1960’s to rule and rule mined bending

        • Not saying what you say is true or false however military and sl special forces at jabbbb sorry but your trained mindless follow orders if anyone is unprepaired its the military ya if an something like this happened thousands would die maybe millions but the few that have the mindset and personal skills will survive. And ill be one to say you take a group of in decent shape gamers and place them against group of military , military will lose , in games which not only teach hand eye quardination they also teach strategy but alone that does nothing but put a few together you have a deadly team , military you work well with team but you follow orders and a sheep who follows will always be the first to die

        • That’s a lie and u and the zombie crap it won’t happen cause we made the zombies up God dam it people who believe that stuff is fucked up

          • Actually it’s real if u actually watched the news u would no it is true and you would also if your grandparents used to work for the government so people who dont believe is fucked up

        • mind bending is easy except im no experiment. and no you can not know my name nor my location nor where I am from only to say the corrupt will not win.

        • also its sad as many have lost their own will/ became puppets mentally. its as if the enlightment and awakening of a being of light and or something more enrages them. its part of their game after all. they feed off suffering they feed off negative energy and emotions. now for all the brain dead people that want to act like “puppets” I wish you would look up the book series called the right use of will. it shall open your eyes it would perfectly work nicely side by side with the bible as the right use of will series is of the non flesh like body aka the soul and astral body

        • If you cannot see the changes and problems arising as a result, YOU are part of the problem. Your brain can’t comprehend the idea of a parallel within a writen piece. The writer is LIKENING the mindlessness people like YOU live under, to a zombie take over…in fact they clearly state that the idea in your head (how a moron would perceive the writing) is NOT what they are talking about.

        • Ha I think that a zombie apocalypse is real because even in the bible it says once there’s no more room in hell the dead will roam the earth and other websites and on YouTube so do not make this guy feel bad I mean seriously this guy worked hard and he really isn’t lien so believe him plz.

          • You really telling the truth I read the hole bible and it said it so people who say it’s fake should read the bible and pay attention in a real church that’s not dirty and nasty

        • Some of these idiots are already so screwed up in the head like game boy that thinks gamers can beat trained military men at a gun battle has already taken more drugs than a body can sanely absorb. WTF

      • Not that this would be a dream come true if u think about it what happens if the army don’t know about it and they get bit then their dead

        • People say they are ready for the “zombie apocolypse” but they arent. They act all tough saying “ill shoot him or her or this and that” but if it comes down to your parents or sister or wife and kids 99% of the people wouldnt be able to pull the damn trigger.

          • I mean duh days family and ppl u love stupid…..so just cuz u don’t have no one to love or dat love u don’t mean u gotta say ppl ain’t ready….I’m bout to be 14 and my friends talk bout da purge and if a Zombie apocolpse happens and they made a list. PPL REAL LIVE readier then u think so him before day stuff.

          • Omg that’s so true and I think if it really happened as soon as I found out I would kill myself like damn why even bother ya know like if there’s going to be a real zombie apocalypse why even live through that and see your own family getting eaten by zombies I personally wouldn’t want to live after that

          • they also believe eradicting the guts of something that is already dead would kill it the brain controls all . the hunger, the mvements. as it is true you take someones brain out it kills movement function everything.

          • looks like i’m not apart of that 99% because i know if someone is a zombie that they are no longer human i would shoot a zombie even if it was my bff and i know i will they say i’m crazy for a reason but that will help me to surrvive it.

      • Why do you think the cops will help us? If it comes upon us they’ll be just as scared or terrified as us to do anything but run.

        • smiling faces tell lies, smiling faces, they don’t tell the truth. Solanum is cesium with. the guy at the top is real. nevada, artificial cesium, not in use since 7526 years.

      • pfft. please. as if the law or government is going to help. they keep covering everything up! its time we stop being sheep and start following our own minds. if we dont start thinking for ourselves and following our own rules and work together, we are all doomed.

      • Ok you honestly didn’t shoot anyone because if you did and the man somehow lived you would be in orison by now for murder and I don’t think we will have actual zombies but we may or may not the on each other and fight each other but there won’t be brain eating people and bull crap like that. Y’all make this up to scare kids and I’m only 16 for Christ sake people ! Y’all need to be worried about Satan coming not this bullshit. He will come and when he does imma kill myself to save myself from seeing everyone else die

        • Thanks that’s what I thought I mean if ya shot someone 6 times it would be all over news and social media . I never heard about that. But I did hear someone was on major drugs and they ate a man’s face of but it was not a zombie. I do think there will be one cuz like that one person said it even said in the Bible that the dead will arisen and walk the earth

      • Your all a bunch of idoits, You’ve watched to many zombie movies. Go find something else to do with your lives.

      • I totally agree w/David as well. The government can do whatever they want. It won’t take nothing for them to whip up a deadly virus n use it on us. This world is gonna end one way or another. Just make sure ur prepared. Help us Lord.

        • IT Can BE Posable BUT ANY THING WITHOUT BLOOD WILLL DIE Yes It May come to Eat Chu If Ur Dumb engought to belive It May Be real Life

      • I agree with david but also because of the expanding population this planets going to be a zombie farm and would be even harder to kill of this new thing the government is making. society is a bitch.

      • yah you’d think with all these zombie movies so one would get the idea, i myself all these movies about aliens, zombies, ghost, the Devil believe they are made for a reason and i believe that reason is to prepare for the end one way or another, we all need to get ready for whats really out there

      • I have been trying to tell others only my grandparents and younger stepsister (who also belive in them) agree with me and that’s problay why my grandparents let me train myself in self-defence when i was 7 also i could use numchucks by the time i was 4 years old, my dad taught me he also taught me how to use a ninga star as well along with knifes because he knows that the real world is dangrous although now he’s a scumbag cause he hasn’t wanted to see me since i was 10 and i needed him the most at that time…

    • I love this website, but this article is just plain stupid. Molly does not cause anyone to want to eat each other, and does not make people into Zombies. Thousands of people do this drug each day, but there are only a few reported incidents of zombie like behavior (none of which caused by this drug). I am not condoning or advocating the use of drugs by any means, but at the same time, please stop spreading false information.

      • The article’s message is not about drugs turning into people wanting to eat each other, it’s about how society today is so messed up that everyone is hypnotized to wanting more electronics. As it said, people are /killing/ each other for a stupid iPhone. It’s just telling us that we need to snap out of this and get back to going outside and learning to do new things that don’t rely on much technology. Don’t get me wrong, technology is the best, but I do agree with this article in saying that we all need to wake up from this and stop living the lives we do now.

      • Yea the drug Molly has caused people to start eating other people if you would look at the news few years back in Miami the cops shot a man and it was caught on camera a man eating another mans face off it took more then one shot to get him to stop

        • That was not molly it was bath salts so seriously and if it happens fuck it does we better come together as a fucking u tied front of civilized neighbors brothers sister cousins u cakes Grammys Pappys AND JUST NORMAL FUCKING people and do what’s right help one another and battle this bitch out no one knows if the worlds gonna end and when or if ever HONESTLY AND IF UR BELIEVING A BOOK THATS BEEN WROTE AND REWROTE BY A MAN FOR CENTURIES THAN SERIOUSLY UR THE BRAINWASHED OVER AMERICANIZED HUMAN BEING …. I’m just saying though … And seriously we have a better shot at a lot of humanity being wiped out by disaster and the ALL TIME NATIONAL HIGH OR HEROIN EPIDEMIC ACROSS THE STATES AND THE WORLD TO BE REAL HONEST… So befor u just start writting what ever like a holy roller bible thumping rebel who’s 20 sheets radical and ready to protest lets honestly look at facts … Honestly sometimes things are movies and tv series for just that reason good ol fashioned home entertainment

      • 20 years later this is going to be helpful and there will be a lot of drug attics and then 20 years later after that we might have our lives at risk

    • Ok so even if the drug is real and everybody does turn into a eating machine, would it eventually wear off? For example pot wears off.

      • yeah but it might turn into a norm for that person, and they just go along with it because they think its right. then that would pose a problem because then the “zombies” would be intelligent.

      • Seriously yay are you fucked in the head once your infected by the virus it don’t wear off your a zombie for the rest of your life

    • I agree drugs are ruining our society! My whole family worksor has worked or is currently working as a police man or woman or a law enforcement job. And seeing this im just saying that i couldnt agree more.

    • The real reason why everything is falling apart is!! The government has control of everything and everyone!! Rich people not being taxed more,illegal aliens being aloud to settle here!! Schools teaching our children to early about sex and telling our kids their parents cant disappline them!! Drugs on our streets!! Gangs controlling the prisons and the street!! Every state in america should have a death penaltie!! Especially people who kill or rape children!! What gives anybody the right to take our children away unless theythey a

    • I was looking for the website that explained this island off the coast of Africa where this disease is literally turning people into zombies and cant seem to find it anywhere. If anyone else knows what im talking about please write back and let me know the address. Im serious about this article because, no shit, this really is happening and being a country boy, I am ready for the disaster to hit home and I already have a set plan to be ready and do what I have to do for me and my family to survive.

    • The zombie apocalypse is real one day someone will get alot of people to do bath salts.
      And then when they bit someone they WILL turn into a zombie.
      I study zombies for a living okay and from most of the zombie movies there are rules to follow such as the double tap shot the zombies twice instead of once.
      But shot them in the head to actually kill them once one state gets infected then the next and the next it will start off AIRBORN which means through the air then once someone gets it in there system they’ll turn and bit someone else then more and more.
      So if you see someone that has been bitten just put them out of there misery.
      ill give you more imput next time.

      • Actually no it can happen at any time. There are many viruses that can cause it ecspecially mad cow disease. You know…if you eat the meat it can “turn you into a zombie” and it has happened in Haiti before.

    • They don’t even turn into zombies they just shots guns and stuff this is stupid at first I believed in u now since I read the whole this it’s Stupid I do not believe you

    • I’m 10 years old and I’ve been telling my friends that there will be a real zombie apocalypse from the begning of 4th grade and now I know the real zombie apocalypse is now and later now by what you told us and later zombies walking around like they rule the world which they wil if we don’t stick together

    • are you people who say its not going to happen are dumb. its going to happen and im going to laugh when i see you as a zombie. its real its comming be paperd just saying

    • Well I’m preserved for this and I’m protecting family since I played zombie I have some expense for it and I’m kinda like Lee from the walking dead game just a girl so is my brother

    • Have you guys heard about the parasitic bug that possess mice and allows them to be eaten by cats. Doing this then enables the bug to possess the cat. Well its been proven that if perfectly engineered it could be exactly like the T virus. So yea, it is possible.

    • call them by their scientific name Democratus Dependitardus.They cant speak english they cant work all they do is kill each other and suck off the system and blame someone else when one of their own gets killed.

    • i agree with this, however not everyone wants to depend on the government to live… and you can’t blame them for something they have no control over.. also prescription drug dependance doesnt just happen from illegal use, there are people who experience daily pain that is immobilizing if they dont have something to help them.

    • Never, this is honestly a bunch of garbage to tell kids to spend more time outside and don’t abuse drugs. Because that man that ate that guys face off was a cannibal. And so it was just unfortunate that he ingested bath salt, but the drug was not the cause of his killings. And if there’s something you can do to protect yourself and the ones you love, join the military. Because what’s going on over the seas is what you should really be worried about, not all of this ZOMBIE bull crap. So get your head screwed on strait and make something out of your life, because you only have one…

    • I couldn’t agree more… Whether its real or not, we need to be prepared. Its 2016 and these occurrences have increased… If things continue, our society could possibly become “zombies”. I don’t mean to freighten anyone, but we all still need to follow some procedures in staying alive. Its important that we stay alive as long as possible and keep our humanity.

    • AZAC stands for Anti-zombie approval club, so join if you don’t want to be a brain dead zombie. Zombies can and ARE actually, non-fictionally real! It’s in rats, bees, ants, and monkeys! And think, just think, think about rabies and think about how fast it came to humans. The zombie apocalypse IS REAL! And again, Join AZAC if You don’t want to be a brain dead zombie.

      • The zombies are coming i saw one in the woods it skin was bloddy green and pasty and was moaning so i ran away i told my parents but they ddid not beileve me

    • Umm I’m addicted to internet for Madd yrs and I’m no cellphone zombie I look and see what is around me Alot too but have dim down with internet been sleeping my life away instead lmao

  2. Your last bullet point is the problem. Parents have no clue what their kids are doing today.

    Why do they allow their teens unfiltered access to the internet, cellphones and media? Do they even realize what their exposing these kids to or are they to busy on their own phones to notice?

  3. Hi Rob, I’d like to respond to this post.
    Let me start off with some background;
    I’m from The Netherlands and go to college.
    I also in an agency that tries to decrease drug-related faitalities. I love this website and check it daily.

    Let me get on-topic though: you are connecting several issues here.
    – Drugs (like XTC)
    – The violence issue
    – The ‘zombie’ issue (kids that watch TV/social media mindless)

    In my opinion it would be way nicer if you’d write stories about these problems, one at a time.
    You could really get into some arguments.

    For instance, the drug issue. In The Netherlands (you know, Amsterdam etc.) a lot of youngsters (18-30) use narcotics. And you know what? Most of them are highly educated and have good jobs and they are good parents. Drug-related casualty’s are next to 0, with the exception of GANG-related death’s.

    I can tell you from experience that the drug that you call Molly, does not turn you into a face-eating zombie. This is ridiculous. MDMA makes you wanna cuddle and have fun.
    I know so out of experience AND out of scientific research.

    I really can’t argue with you about the other issues, but if you’d like to learn more about drugs AND how the country could fight addiction AND drug-related violence, please ask. :-)

    Keep up the good work though, love the website!

    • I don’t even know where to start. You really need to lay off the drugs and do a little more research. I think your dead wrong on MDMA but for arguments sake lets say your right.

      99% of the Molly that’s sold is not MDMA. As the article briefly points out it’s a concoction of things like bath salts and meth. The drugs that kids are doing today are not the same drugs that most people grew up with.

      • Haha, alright. Forgive me for not knowing that Molly is actually a combo of bath salts and meth.

        But that brings us to the point that I wanted to bring out. In my country, everyone is able to go to a GOVERNMENTAL test center and test their drugs. This might seem ridiculous, but we almost have no fatalities.

        Isn’t that an option for the USA to try? I mean, from a neutral stance here from Europa, it’s obvious the so called ‘War on Drugs’ has failed.

      • dude in america the only people who would buy bath salts and think its molly are the ignorant and bothersome kids that u want to od

      • For all you preppers and gamers that fantasize about this topic you better hope it don’t happen. One reason and one reason only no one and I mean no one will survive. Unless you have an underground bunker with about a decades worth of food water and medication. The reason I say this is there are thousand of nuclear power plants around the world with no one to run them. That means there is actually thousand of nuclear bombs ready to explode and contaminate the entire planet. Game over no survival groups gamers lose ex military and all the weirdos that think this would be awesome lose. Have a good day

    • I fully agree with Jeroen on the drug subject. There is plenty of scientific research backing up the fact that Molly(MDMA) is a safe drug as long as it is not abused(as with anything).

      I believe the drug you are refering to is the “bath salts” that came out a few years ago to try to replace Molly with a legal high. This was a total disaster as these new drugs haven’t been tested at all and have no research on them.

      These drug companies are just out for profit and not for safety. Molly was actually made for psychological use but because it became a street drug it became outlawed by the DEA in the mid 80’s, we are just now getting some good research done on it again to support it’s use for many mental disorders including PTSD.

      So please inform yourself fully on something before you start ranting on it. If our gov’t wasn’t retarded when it comes to the war on drugs then it would be legal and available in it’s pure form so people wouldn’t accidentally get bad drugs in place of it. This is what makes illegal drugs dangerous, not the drugs themselves.

      As far as the rest of the article, yes, media/gov’t is turning everyone into zombies.

      • My point exactly. In The Netherlands we are are really open about druguse. We try to minimalize drugABUSE.

        A lot of people forget that alcohol is a fully legal and full accepted HARD DRUG.
        It’s one of the most harmful substances for your body, yet it’s legal.

        MDMA is another kind of drug, that does LESS damage to your body.

        I really don’t have a clue why the USA (which I actually see as a beautiful country) continue this ‘war on drugs’. It has proven itself to be the wrong method.

    • I’d like to thank Ben and Jeroen for proving the articles point. I hope everyone takes a good look at these people and what they are saying because they’re today’s youth.

      Look at how warped their minds have become. These are the people you have to worry about.

      • Well said momofthree. I speak from experience and plenty of it. Living a half a century to date, in my opinion, the mind set of the youth of today is drastically different than that which was instilled in most of our generation. The youth of today truly believe the world and their parents owe them. There is a sense of entitlement. The lack of respect for one another, being friend, family, or stranger has become so rampant it is no longer expected. Doc in the box is the new way of life. Drugs are so rampant employers try to find ways around testing just to keep employees. Employees can’t function w/o their drugs. Society has become dependent upon drugs. They think they are functioning better when in fact they are becoming mindless robots overloaded with emotion one minute ready to kill one another, and the next minute so emotionless they have no conscious as to what they say or do to one another or themselves. I have witness drugs destroy lives over and over. The very core of my soul is sickened with it. No matter how you slice it, test it, control it, fight it, people will find a way to get it and they don’t care if it’s laced with poison. Our enemies are aware of the weakness in America’s youth. They are on just about every corner selling them gas and their lethal cocktail of bath salts or whatever new drug is the dish of the month.

        • Oh, and I am sick of hearing “bad parenting” as the excuse for the attitude of the youth today. Influences from every direction imaginable are working against parents every step of the way.

          • I entirely agree, Kimm. Parenting is just a minor factor in this generation’s children. All sorts of things influence them such as modern pop, TV shows (Even the kid’s channels aren’t very safe-), other kids their age, other adults, and much more! Guys, it isn’t just the parents. Truthfully, most parents are better than what you think.

      • Momofthree, Thanks for being part of the problem, I really hope you are joking. Try reading a book sometime and actually educate yourself on something instead of just having an opinion. The exact problem with our beautiful country and why it is falling apart. It’s ok though, keep believing the lies the gov’t/TV tell you, the rest of us conscious individual’s will keep pushing for our freedom from the gov’t. Go Ron Paul!

      • I don’t understand why you say that. This article is full of hyperbole. The reason “kids” are using these drugs is not because of our “society”. It’s because they can. Back in the 60s it was pot. Then it was acid. Now they’ve found new ways to get high. Better living through chemistry. If the ability to manufacture drugs this way existed in the 50s and 60s, they’d have been around back then. This article is just an excuse for the author to wring his hands and blame “da ebil gubamint” and TV for everything that HE finds wrong with the country.

  4. ya so lets cut education, food stamps, assistance, health care, unemployment, medicaid, medicare, affordable housing, etc ya that will make everything better

    • I guess some people just can’t see past politics. What does anything you just babbled on about have to do with the article? The only thing you did was point out one more thing that should have been in the article POLITICAL ZOMBIES.

  5. I think the bottomline is, that with most of these problems, bad parenthood is the problem. My parents didn’t let me sit in front of the TV all day.. They thaught me good moral values and made sure I went to school.

    Yet, I spend a lot of hours on social media (especially Twitter), but I learn a lot from it. Hell, I found this website via Twitter. ;-).
    It’s about WHAT you do on social media, not that you are on it. I don’t go over other people’s photo’s all day long, I read and learn CRITICALLY.

  6. These gangs would not survive a week with a certain motorcycle group keeping shop. You may not like them but they keep their neighborhood safe from being mugged or beat on for no reason.

  7. i’ve been thinking about this for some years. we have in brazil what is called crackoland, that is land of crack. there are living dead, comsumpted by their addiction, ready to kill or die, in order to get their “precious” (got something here?) drug.

    Govt’ does nothing about. Durg lords will run the land for a while, commanding these inordinate troops till they get crazy enough to go zombie-mode forever.

    that’s my view.

  8. First i agree about the iphone statement, but did you forget about hte kid in Houston i think that was killed for a pair of tennis shoes,,,
    I see Mom and Kim’s point, however today’s parents have a harder job, but you must do it,,,limit t.v., media and what music listen too make the older kids read to the younger kids,play board games,etc,,,

  9. As an ex-drug user/alcoholic and now a substance abuse counselor in a correctional setting, I do have some insight into this issue as far as the USA is concerned. First: My own addictions were my fault and mine alone. Nobody forced me to take or drink anything. That being said, when I grew up in the ’60’s and ’70’s, things were very different. For the most part, kids respected their elders and were in fear of punishment from Mom and Dad. What I see today is a disrespectful, angry group of people that demand respect instead of giving it first, think that they are owed a living and anything they want. I see parents more afraid of their kids, then the kids are of them. Parents fall into 2 categories with the people I work with, either they were drug abusers themselves and didn’t parent their own kid, or they spoiled the shit out of them. Please note: I am referring to the parents of the addicts I currently treat. Then our own society comes into play. If you watch closely, you will see on TV that there is a pill for everything. We are taught that there is no need to experience any kind of pain. That there is no need to struggle with anything. I’m sorry, but there is no need for a 90 year old man to have an erection! (his wife probably wants a break!) The doctors and pharma companies are happy to provide us with xanax for our nerves, opiates for a head ache, etc. The schools love to see our active kids doped up on ritalin. Then, God forbid, you are sad, they then prescribe you antidepressants that it takes forever to get off of. Is there a group of people that need some psychotropics, yes, but not the majority of them. The USA cannot be compared to Europe because the culture and attitudes toward drugs is different. Americans want more of anything that makes them feel good, whether its drugs or material things. And the author of this article is right. In a survival situation, we will be dealing with people in withdrawal from everything from heroin to pharmaceuticals. We will have hordes of people that have depended on our supermarkets for everything trying to feed their families (myself included until recently). I have only been prepping for a year or two. I don’t know how long I would last, living in an urban area. I never farmed or hunted anything, but I plan on learning. I’ve been storing what I can and learning to shoot. I see bad things coming and I just hope that I can take care of myself and my family.

    • I agree with you, Noreen. I have kids who use anything and everything, and kids who (like me) very rarely take tylenol for a headache. Those who use do so of their own free will. As to the article, I agree that people these days are turning into mindless zombies, and the drugs that are being manufactured in any random basement on the block are not helping matters. I experimented a little when I was young ( very little), but the thought of pouring drano or antifreeze or the like down my throat never interested me. People KNOW what’s in this stuff, They see their friends die from a single use but still say ” What the hell, gimme some”. I don’t get it

    • I agree with most of what you are saying, but i think that one of the reasons for the disrespect is the CRAP music,glorifacation of drug dealers showing off all their stuff, video games and t.v.
      showing how cool it is,,,,so the kids want it now, they do not want to work for it they just sell drugs, rod people and etc.

    • I agree with all that you said. Once a kid gets wrapped up in the legal system they get worse rather than better because the workers rely on stereotypes rather than getting to know the child and helping them change and get away from the peer pressure, etc.

  10. Let’s burn this mutha down!!!
    Time for a fresh start. Bring on the zombies so we can try something new and get rid of the zombies running things in washington. Time for people to start living their own lives instead of this indentured servitude
    Anarchy in the UK, I mean USA!!!

  11. No offense but I don’t think there’s going to be a zombie apocalypse because in the bible revolations god ment that the body’s of the dead where going to be lifted up off the planet so that god could make a new world. But still you can be leave what you want. Thank you for your time buti do agree about how adults should keep more in touch with there children and stop the drugs.

  12. Before moving to a balmy beach to smoke ten buck cigars and sip 25 year old rum, I lived in gangbangville Los Angeles for almost a quarter century. Well… the rent was cheap.

    There were roughly 200 tattooed homeboys running the franchise there (drrrugs, pussy and guns). And then there was me, a street smart artist armed with a Smith and Wesson five shot and ten years of college education.

    The odds were definitely in my favor. Indeed! Most of those homie are in prison or dead. One of the many lessons I learned from my long sojourn in gangbangville is that you (but never ewe) don’t pet a rabid dog. You fuckin’ shoot it.

  13. this is all rediculous MDMA/molly and XTC are not bath salts or METH, not even close. all molly is, is a pure form of XTC which is the main ingredient in XTC which is MDMA. bath salts are obviously a problem and im not against what you are standing for here but i just wanted to point that small fact about the drugs you are refering to

  14. Now, I don’t believe in “zombies”, but I do get your point. I’m a 13 year old beginner survivalist, teaching my brothers how to survive during different events, and I must be lucky with a 12 gauge under my bed:). Thank you for spreading the info

  15. I used to sell ranchland that a lot of preppers would buy. Remote, off the grid, great hunting. The only issue was water. Wells would be very very expensive looking at depths of over 600 ft. and it had to be hauled in. My thought was always that when it all goes to hell, water is the most valuable resource.

  16. Rob, I like your premise for this article. I don’t think you need to argue that illegal drugs or TV addiction is necessary to turn people into zombies. You are dead on that there will be zombies but they won’t be slow or dead. They will be mal-nourished people desperate for food, clean water, alcohol, and medical supplies – skinnies as the military has termed people in third world countries. They’ll have little fear of death since their lives are miserable and little morality from hanging out with other “zombies”.

    We already have a pretty sizeable underclass like this living in America today. They are already pretty miserable and have little morality, but they have access to plenty of the aforementioned basics; in fact, they are still fat! They aren’t a big enough or desperate enough group that we can’t handle them with our police, courts, and prisons.

    But, if catastrophe strikes quickly (war on American soil, prolonged drought, massive storms, economic collapse/hyper-inflation) and drastically decreases the average American’s access to food, water, alcohol, and medicine, this underclass will have NO access. Social safety nets will fail as everyone begins to fend for themselves. There will be desperate, half-dead “zombies” that will overwhelm our law-and-order system.

    My theory is that first-worlders are all subconsciously aware that the zombies are coming. That’s why zombie stories are resonating so much. We see the golden age ending and drawing the conclusions I’ve made above. And, we all want to imagine that we won’t be among the undead and will get to go around mercilessly hacking these poor lost souls to pieces.

    But, it won’t be that clean, and you won’t be able to avoid becoming a zombie simply by not getting bitten. Two actions can be taken: 1) you can prepare so that you can survive shortages and lawlessness and 2) you can work hard to make sure America as a society can withstand the challenges we currently face. Both 1) and 2) require hard work now. If you’re not willing to do one or the other or both, you will be staggering through the countryside moaning in desperation.

  17. Hi, I don’t believe in zombies also, but I understand what you are saying. Any country can be more or less “rich” as the society of that country is more or less conscious and educated. The US government, and also EU governments are following the same path, have constrained their citizens in such a way that they are no longer capable of thinking, an that is the only tool we need not only to survive in any scenario, but also to act as citizens who know our rigths and duties. The citizens are no longer citizens, they are just doped, stupid people who cannot act as any citizen should. Portugal, 500 years ago, was the most powerful nation of the world, now is a country who lost is sovereign to a bank, really, the BCE leaders tell the Portuguese Prime-Minister to cut jobs and raise taxes, and he obey politely, like a dog. Due to the misconduct of our political leaders, we are in deep sh*t, and so you are, for the same reasons, and we cannot blame nobody, because we voted, we accepted all the bullsh*t that they were serving to us wrapped in TV, facebook, or the new phone arrival. You in US should pay more attention to what is happening here in europe, the things are going nuts over here. In Portugal, almost half of the population is being paid under €500 a month, did you know that? In Spain, strikes of the garbage sector have leave Madrid full of sh*t in the streets this weak and people are using masks to walk about. Today, in Portugal, is transportation strike and I cannot go to work, no buses or trains, and if I would drive to work I would have pay to work, because gas here is between €1,65 to €1,85 a litre, and I live about 100Km of my work place! Here in europe we are getting tired of banks and of Germany, who is f*cking europe for the 3rd time in 100 years with they bank system. Pay atention to europe, who are in the edge of a multitude of national’s revolutions and the fall apart of EU.

    • Thank You For Sharing. Ive been watching the EU since its inception and I agree. I have XPat Friends living there, they give me a Blow by Blow description of whats going on. The US is already conforming to the EU economic model that Ronald Ray-Gun Loved so much. The Sheet has Hit The Fan.

      • Why do people think of the first things to grab to kill zombies is guns can jam easy the best thing would be bows, cross bows, knives, swords, and Spears would work best ik all this and I’m 14 I prepare myself for wut is happening like today is worse than any days!!!!!
