We were going to talk about passivity here, but, ugh, that would require effort. We're right in the middle of a two-day-long Walking Dead marathon, and, ugh, thinking? Turning our brains on? Nah, we'd rather not.
Don't get us wrong, we love TV, reading, relaxing, all that stuff. But it can get to a point where you're not just watching The Walking Dead—you are the walking dead. Instead of being engaged in life, you're just sailing through it, and it's hard to tell the difference between you and a drooling, brain-eating zombie. In Warm Bodies, Julie's theory is that passivity, an overwhelming malaise, is what led to the zombie outbreak. Not a virus or biological warfare, just good old-fashioned laziness. So engage your brain, or it just might get eaten.
