Zombie for Prosperity

September 11th, 2012

Reader “Nicholas Bourbaki”[1] has sent me a link to an animation illustrating some of the ideas in Zombie Economics (with actual zombie, naturally). It’s done using the Xtranormal movie maker all the cool kids are using these days. Watch and enjoy.

fn1. Apologies to Nicholas if Mr and Mrs Bourbaki were big fans of 20th century modern mathematics or 19th century French demagoguery and really did name their baby in this way.

    Coouldn’t watch it to the end. Too old and my attention span too feeble. I was waiting for hervto kick him in the head. But it just wasn’t happening. She was persistently be irrational and talking to him.

    Some one please. Do me a favour? Please do watch it to the end. And please do confirm my hope that she does, finally, kick him in the head. Hopefully with such vigor that it severs his head from his torso.

    Please. Someone.

    Make my day!

    It’s great. LOL.

    But I won’t spoil it for the others by describing the end. Sorry Freelander.

    Those ‘deep’ thinkers are at it it again. … “Mont Pelerin meeting warns against dangers of untrammelled democracy” sabhlokcity.com/2012/09/mont-pelerin-re-confirms-the-ever-present-dangers-of-untrammelled-democracy/ :-) Where would us freedom lovers be if they weren’t there to protect us in their quasi-secret faux-elitist society holding its quasi-secret members and invitees only meetings where they formute how to protect their patently.inferior fellow (hard to credit) species members from that most unmitigated threat to their “freedom of choice”™ and what’s good for them, yes, that undeniable threat anti-thesis and enemy of freedom lovers everywhere, ahem, democracy!!!

    Mystery. Why do adherents of a philosophy that teaches that one ought to have no concern for one’s fellows have such overwhelming concern for their fellows?
