Interesting article. It would be nice to find something to blame the Mass Insanity on, but the article does'n t mention one thing about the main street media whipping mindless, soulless creatures into a frenzy. Being surrounded by emotional wrecks, unable to any longer "reason"(Zombie Apocalypse)leads me to wonder........ why some are infected and some are not?

I wonder if not so much per se immunity, as whether by nature and/or nurture, that some folks possess a cerebral "security suite" that scans ideas for traces of insanity and shields their brain by either blocking or "quarantining" questionable notions

OTOH sans such protective free-thinking capacity, folks inadequately equipped to cope with malicious mental intrusions are seriously susceptible to infection from exposure to thought-less control systems and groupthink.

Of course, cerebral precautions are one thing. It's a whole 'nother thing if and when it gets physical. So for security, stock up on shotguns and shells before time comes mindless soulless in-group emotional wreck Zombies are frenzily eating your brains.
