What's Behind the Zombie Craze? How "Progressive" Culture Flirts with Cannibalism

By Alejandro Ezcurra

For anyone who is not hopelessly naive, it is obvious that the promotion of certain fashions are artificially controlled, especially those that most favor the cultural revolution.

The "fingerprints" of this mysterious orchestration is apparent with the zombie trend:  suddenly, as if obeying a watchword, groups of people appear in major cities of the world parading as walking cadavers, and the mass media is ready to broadcast the unprecedented, large-scale promotion of the horrendous.  What does this mean?


Why is a society called "progressive" flirting with cannibalism? 

Nobody knows where these pseudo-dead come from; what is known, however, is that the more disgusting and macabre looking they are, the more they are promoted. Hence the simulation of eyes hanging out of their sockets, exposed bone, severed limbs, bloody foam running from the mouth or nose, worm-infested sores, and rotting flesh.


At first glance, the naive may wince and even be horrified, but then — not accustomed to thinking seriously about anything — the episode is brushed aside as yet another event to get used to.  Naive minds do not even suspect that these macabre displays might be organized and planned for a reason.

A new human type, the personification of total disorder

Normally we would question: Why anyone would want to appear as a decomposing corpse and who is promoting this aberration.  The simple and clear answer emerges in the context of a revolutionary process that is eroding Western Christianity, as masterfully described by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira in Revolution and Counter-Revolution.

Starting with the decline of the Middle Ages, this Revolution with capital "R" had three historical stages: the Protestant pseudo-Reformation, the French Revolution and Communism.  This Revolution is now converging into a final stage, which is the implementation of complete disorder: First within souls, modeling a human type that embodies total internal disorder, impacting all human activity, individual and social: the revolution of chaos, anarchy.

It's hard to believe that someone would want to live in perpetual chaos. But it is understandable if we consider how pride and sensuality — the fuel that feeds the revolutionary fire — survives from the denial of all rules and all authority, and therefore of all order.  This revolt can be summed up by the famous anarchist slogans of the Sorbonne revolution of 1968: "It is forbidden to forbid" and "Neither God nor master."

For the revolutionary, "liberation" from "oppressive" order includes liberation from the beautiful (beauty is an aspect of order), as well as getting rid of the burden of a proper personal presentation, dignified and pleasant — which reflects the dignity of man according to the rules of civilized life — to indulge their libertarian appetites in unbridled folly.

The "secret aspirations" of the zombie trend

And here come the zombies.  These monstrous disguises that only display hideous and grotesque ugliness reveal a clear ideological intent. Because, as Pope Pius XII observed, "It might be said that society speaks through the clothing it wears.  Through its clothing it reveals its secret aspirations and uses it, at least in part, to build or destroy its future."Pius XII, Discourse Gran Di Cuore, of November 8, 1957, Discourses and Radio Messages, Vatican Press, 1959 vol . XIX, p . 578.

And what are the "secret aspirations" of those hideous costumes?  What hidden message do they "speak"?  By accustoming the public to see the zombies with naturality and even sympathy, trend setters are preparing the ground for the acceptance of the ugly, the monstrous, a paroxysm of madness, that is, the Serpent, "the first, the major, the eternal revolutionary, the instigator and foremost upholder of this Revolution"Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, Revolution and Counterrevolution, 1993 edition by The American TFP, pg. 167. whose head was crushed by the Immaculate Virgin.

The ultimate goal of the anti-Christian revolution is effectively to replace the beauty and harmony of Christianity, mirror and prefigure of Heaven, with a rule of ugliness and revolutionary chaos, a reflection and antechamber of hell.

Let's bear this in mind and categorically reject the revolution of the horrendous. Otherwise we not only risk following stupid trends, but also finding ourselves among the "fellow travelers" of the prince of darkness.

I find this very disgusting to see. I don't understand the young people today, they have no morals, I guess a lot of the parents are to blame for this. Today Catholics are good enough Catholics. I am glad that my husband & I raised our 4 children to be strong Catholics that practice their faith.

Zombies are how those who go to hell will look forever after the resurrection - that's what I tell my grandchildren.

It is also the simple "innocent" way of dehumanizing the person. Desensitize the young, then they will accept the brutality to come.

Zombieism: how very clever that we can be so naive, in how the devil can use visual media to describe a world of chaos and rebellion, only to support his own ends. So easy to follow the fiddler Jim Jones to Guyana and his followers. Let us follow like sheep our Sheepherder and not Satan in sheep's clothing... God Bless You.
