Survivalist Culture

Fear of the “apocalypse” has consumers preparing for the worst

Implications - The resurgence of zombies in pop culture is undeniable, with zombie books, movies, TV shows and video games flooding the market. Associated with the “end of the world,” zombies strike a natural fear of preservation in humans, which, combined with recent talks of an impending apocalypse, has sparked a new kind of survivalist mentality. While survivalists of the past may have worried about natural disasters or other types of societal collapse (resource shortages), a new survivalist culture is coming to the fore armed with zombie survival kits, disaster-ready shelter and unparalleled knowledge about the possibility of apocalypse.
