The successful television series The Walking Dead has captured a large audience since originally debuting in 2011. For those not familiar it tells the story of apocalypse survivors trying to stay alive under near-constant threat of attacks from zombies known as "walkers." However, with the collapse of modern civilization, these survivors must confront other human survivors who have formed groups and communities with their own sets of laws and morals, sometimes leading to open, hostile conflict between them.
The zombies have been reduced to primal beings focused on attacking and feeding on humans. They have no intellectual capability or critical thought. They will turn on their own families, friends and coworkers no matter how much they have been loved in the past. They are truly just walking dead people. Some people in the show will use the zombies to protect them and their power. The bad guys will do anything to create and protect their autocratic utopias.
America and the western world are seeing a very similar situation happening today. But instead of zombies walking around we have what we like to refer to as “wokies.” A vocal minority of people that have lost their ability to think intelligently or critically debate on issues. Instead, they try and destroy free thinkers through the taking of individual liberties, careers and reputations. They use cancel culture as their primal urge to destroy others.
In the TV series, zombies are created by a virus and are all programmed the same. But in our world, the walking wokies come in several flavors:
Victim wokies – These are the ones who take no responsibility for their own life. They would be prettier, richer, have a better family or be more successful except for others having all the advantages. They are unable or unwilling to compete in the world through hard work, overcoming adversity and addressing individual issues holding them back. Younger ones live in basements and the older ones just live really unhappy lives.
Spiritual wokies - These tend to be those that are not traditionally religious. They have substituted a belief in God for diversity, the environment, false movements and politics. They seek meaning anyway they can find it and will follow their faux god even as their intellectual arguments in favor are destroyed. These are the ones that attend or support PRIDE parades, transgender story hours, tearing down of statues, women’s marches and riot for no intellectually sound reason.
Maternal wokies – These are the ones that have convinced themselves they are so much smarter and enlightened then others. They tend to be the white liberals (though not always) that come to the rescue of those they believe cannot take care of themselves. You know the types. They give to PBS, have NPR on a preset and have Coexist bumper stickers on their EV or hybrid.
Sell your soul wokies – These are the most notorious. They use wokeness as a tool to try and become powerful. They tend to be junior executives, local politicians, diversity and inclusion consultants, school board members, college administrators and media types that believe they can win favor with the powerful and connected. They know what they say makes no intellectual sense, yet they still tear down others to get ahead.
Just like in the series, wokies like walkers are used to keep the power hungry and elites in power. You don’t really believe that our corporate, political, academic and media elites believe all this crap, do you? Heck no. They feed the walking wokies whatever intellectually dishonest drivel is needed so they will keep and grow their power.
The one major difference between real life and The Walking Dead remains that unlike zombies, wokies can someday wake up and get real.
We must pray it happens before the apocalypse.
