Bred, Fed, and Led


In honor of Zombie Awareness Month I am posting extra quotes from World War Z – Enjoy!

All armies, be they mechanized or mountain guerrilla, have to abide by three basic restrictions: they have to be bred, fed, and led. Bred: you need warm bodies, or else you don’t have an army; fed: once you’ve got that army, they’ve got to be supplied; and led: no matter how decentralized that fighting force is, there has to be someone among them with the authority to say “follow me.” Bred, fed, and led; and none of these restrictions applied to the living dead.

Political Chess


“…the process to alter public policy is like watching a chess game: Sheer strategy and full emotional investment are needed for the most convincing players to win.
