Zombies, Run! 2018 January 22

When playing Zombies, Run! I often find myself sympathizing more with New Canton than Able. Re-running season 2, episode 4, “We Used To Be Friends”, I was reminded why when Nadia Al Hanaki says the following:

“From each according to her ability, to each according to her needs.” You ever heard that? It’s what Karl Marx used to say. Funny, that stuff wasn’t too popular before Day Zero, was it? Collectivism, socialism. They were about as fashionable as bell bottoms and digital watches. But suddenly it all makes sense. [snorts] Not digital watches, obviously. Those will always be stupid. But pulling together, looking out for each other. If we can’t do that, there’s no hope for us. That’s what New Canton’s all about.

Some Marxism in my narrative running app? There’s hope for the world!
