Zombie capital

More shameless plagiarism!

Are zombies proletarians? Can they achieve class consciousness? Failing that, can they at least pay union dues? The answers are, in order: yes, yes, and yes. No wonder the bourgeoisie are afraid of them.

The zombie stands for a new era of political economy where it will no longer be necessary to pay or even feed your workers. But without wages, how will the zombie workforce create demand for consumer goods? What does a hip young twenty-something zombie living in downtown Minneapolis do with his non-existent paycheque? Clearly the development of the zombie labourer represents the final stage of capitalism where money abolishes itself and a pure command economy is established, and where whoever controls the zombies has the power.

Yup, Heaviside again

A look at history suggests this has always been the case, where the bourgeoisie are allowed to flourish only insofar as the controllers will cede some control in exchange for increased general prosperity, and vice versa.

The answer, naturally, is to breed and edumacate smarter zombies. The general answer, I should say. The particular situation may call for discretion, but the general strategy prefers smart zombies as much as possible, except when other considerations are more immediate.

    The real question is, can zombies sing?

    The revolution will be choreographed! What we need to do is teach hicks Mao Tse-Tung Thought, so they can wage class war on the imperialist Yankee carpetbaggers. Our towheaded comrades in khaki uniforms will prance into the Upper East Side when we liberate New York, and there the Eternal Jew, waiting for us in his tastefully decorated lair, will clutch his chest, throw out a red silk streamer, and cry out, like Alberich deprived of his Ring, “Oy! The goys finally got me!”

    “Don’t say we have nothing
    We will unite all under Heaven
    This is the final struggle.”
