Our modern life is very similar to living in a zombie world. Chuck Klosterman, the publisher of the article, “My Zombie, Myself: Why Modern Life Feels Rather Undead”, argues the same claim. He compares how different and similar our lives are as hard-working human beings and being zombies. He stated, “Every zombie war is a war of attrition. It’s always a numbers game. And it’s more repetitive similar to reading and deleting 400 work emails on a Monday morning or filling out paperwork that only generates more paperwork, or following Twitter gossip out of obligation, or performing avalanche.” Klosterman uses this statement to compare how the killing of zombies are like the action of finishing your work. As zombies are endless, so are your duties and tasks. Also, when he said, “And it’s more repetitive than complex” goes to show that its the work you get everyday is not difficult, but rather never ending, just like zombies. They are not difficult to kill, but they are continuously spawning in front of your face. In other words, as you are a survivor in a zombie world, who is trying to kill the zombies that are attacking you, it is very similar to how you are in today’s world trying to survive everyday. In which, your 12-hour shift is the “zombie”, or your responsibilities or even your homework that is due in the next hour. Our lives are very similar to living as an Undead.
