CDC Creating a “Zombie Horror” Consciousness
“How do I prepare for a zombie apocalypse?” Supposedly, this was the question raised by the general public that motivated the CDC into action with the release of “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse.”  It’s a ridiculous question by most standards, but apparently not for the CDC. That’s because the CDC’s “Zombie Apocalypse” is targeting a younger audience to accomplish a number of important objectives. This includes planting the seeds of “zombie horror” consciousness.
An important feature of this state of consciousness is how negative psychological elements of zombie horror imagery and its fictional life-threatening situations can be recalled within the context of an actual emergency to impact your perceptions. The objective would be to exploit the fear factor in hope that many of you adopt a similar model of zombie-terrorized behavior. This facilitates the impact of media hype to influence your judgment under emergency circumstances, reminiscent of the H1N1 swine flu “pandemic.”
