Joss Whedon has already envisioned a future filled with vampires, in his smash '90s series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Yes, just 10 years on from the end of that series, our cinemas and televisions are overrun with the longtoothed creatures (all of which have now got a bit long-in-the-tooth). Now his predictions have taken a more political turn, as he has made a video in strong, well thought out support of Republican candidate Mitt Romney. What's his focus? Mitt's own strong and well thought out plans, perfectly suitable for a zombie apocalypse.
Whedon begs us to ask some very important questions, including "Am I ready for the purity and courage Mitt Romney's apocalyptic vision"? He endorses Romney because "he's not afraid to face rattling grasping hordes of supplements because that's how he sees poor people already". Okay, okay, so maybe Whedon's video is satirical. Nevertheless, he really does make some very important points about Romney.
Whedon notes Romney's "commitment on governed corporate privilege that will nosedive this economy into true insolvency and chaos the kind of chaos you can't buy back" and most importantly points out that "Romney's ready to make that deep rollbacks in healthcare, education, social services [and] reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation disease [and] rioting; all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland."
Whedon is also responsible for Toy Story, X-Men and The Avengers. We recommend he make a film out of this idea- watching it will certainly be much more fun than living it.
