The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Wait, what? Post-apocalyptic movies are fiction and in no way a representation of events that might actually happen, or how society in general deals with such catastrophes?? No way!! *puts assless leather chaps and crossbow back in the closet*

I loved the one comment in the podcast about the Walking Dead crew stumbling on a city where everything is just fine and peachy and the peeps there going "what the hell is WRONG with you people???"

 So it is all about our inner psyche.

 These   story lines do translate into most  back drops.

 Keep the enemy out. Don't trust strangers. Women are trouble.

 and the prize, grail , sanctuary wont be what you thought it was

The pieces aren't very good, that's true...but I think they ARE hitting on something, sorta.

The tropes in post-apocalypse movies do say something about the Zeitgeist.  But, they only speak to the specific demographic who really enjoy post-apocalyptic stories.  Nothing was said about the more positive messages in post-apocalyptic movies, e.g. everyone (at least in the standard small-community scenario) DOES have to work together despite ego conflicts if folk want to survive.

I'm tempted to write pages about both positive and negative reflections the post-apocalyptic mirror shows us, but I think I'd rather hear what y'all have to say...

What DOES the fantasy presented by post-apocalyptic-themed entertainment media say about us?  Thoughts?

..."apocalyptic dreams see the ordinary madness"...
