Zombie apocalypse is a popular concept. Basically, under a zombie apocalypse scenario, some kind of virus spreads and turn perfectly fine human beings into undead people. Those newly minted zombies bite into the sane part of the population, growing exponentially their number and causing the civilization to collapse.
Ok, guys, I’ve got big news for you. The zombie apocalypse is now.
Look at this Wiki page.
This is public spending as a percentage of GDP all over the world. If you’re too lazy to read it, I’ll summarize it for you taking into account just the G20 nations:
|Nation||Public spending as GDP%|
|France||56.1 – lol, you kidding me?|
Taking into account the relative size of their economies, we can say that the weighted average is well over 40%, since China data are basically fake. So, of every dollar put into the economy, more than 40 cents come from big brother government. And this is just direct spending, but once you take into account indirect spending, such as expenditures by public employees & contractors, a conservative estimate gives us numbers well over the 50% public spending / GDP.
Do you see the crawling zombies closing in?
But, before your brain ends up into a zombie lunch box, let me give you one more bit of data: every economy in the table above has a tax burden % relative to GDP which is smaller than the public spending % relative to the same GDP.
Ok, now is time to lock up your truck and run away.
The simple conclusions we can draw from these data are:
- the number of people milking the state is greater than the number of people making a living in the private market.
- a good chunk of public expenditure is financed by deficit.
- the bigger concentration of zombies is in the western world. Europe is the zombie hell hole, with Paris claiming the crown of zombie capital.
So, unpalatable and politically incorrect as it may be, all these state minions, employees, bureaucrats and contractors are the zombies in the current zombie apocalypse. The rest of us is the surviving population. As you probably noted by yourself, zombies are getting the upper hand.
The point is: how do you survive a zombie apocalypse?
Since zombies are not self-sustaining, because they need to eat the living flesh of human beings to survive, your basic strategy is: (1) do not get eaten alive, (2) outlast them. Chances to achieve (1) and (2) are greatly enhanced by (3) join a strong community of survivors.
