After writing about The Hunger Games Trilogy on Wednesday and The Divergent Series yesterday, I got the idea to turn my opinions on postapocalyptic science fiction into a full-blown blog series — a trilogy, if you will.
And that brings us to my first point: When did kids go from reading about Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, to reading about teenagers killing each other in a televised fight to the death? They have legions of followers, ready, willing, and able to pay for movie tickets, even if it means buying two tickets to one movie i.

Is it because the nuclear arms race and accelerated climate change have confronted us with the undeniable fact that we might someday be responsible for our own extinction? When did we get so pessimistic that we feel like disaster is all but guaranteed for us?
Zombie flicks are nothing new — George A. Zombies are conservative because the solution to that problem is to restore traditional values of civilization.
