15 BRAINS ; anonymous text

Scenario: Zombies exist. They are conscious beings, look just like humans (no rotted flesh), except they have super strength and have to eat human brains or they'll lose their minds and go full Romero-style like in the movies. Probably a couple hundred of them in terms of population. Most of them don't kill humans, they buy brains off of coroners or funeral directors for premium prices just to keep from becoming murderers because while yes, they do feel hunger when they look at a human person, they also used to be a human and aren't typically psychopaths unless they already were before they died. They also sometimes get glimpses of the memories of the humans they eat. It can be spread via scratching, biting, and sexual contact. It's not spreadable to anything but in-species (so zombie rats can only infect rats, zombie humans can only infect humans).

What do you do about the zombie population?

(Disclaimer: This is hypothetical. Been watching a lot of B horror and got curious!)

Is it public knowledge in this scenario? If it isn't, I would say closely monitoring the infected until a potential cure could be developed is a general rational choice. Assuming the scenario has some sort of "zombie virus" instead of one of the more campy depictions that involve the actual dead crawling out of their graves, of course.

Did you say super strength?

I don't know. I probably wouldn't do anything. Maybe try to come up with more tasty versions of brains because I'm not a scientist, so I can't help them with a cure. But I'm not a cook either...

Well, that sure brings a whole new meaning to "sexually transmitted infection"

Doesn't sound to me like there'd be anything to "do" about 'em. If there's no murder or extra crazy, no reason why they can't coexist.
I mean, frankly it just sounds like a typical day in Everglade.

also what B movies were you even watching?
sounds like I need hooked up with these for a good laugh.

Everglade is full of such creatures already. Creatures that feed on human blood or flesh in order to live. Nobody has proposed an invasion of Everglade, regardless. By all accounts, it functions no better or worse than any other archway.

I see no reason why zombies should be afforded any more or less tolerance than any other 'creature of the night,' at least in that regard.

I would hope there are information campaigns so people can take appropriate measures to prevent infection, just as with other transmittable diseases.

I would also consider it the duty of the government to provide for food (preferably funding research for substitutes) since it should be illegal and considered highly immoral for funeral directors or coroners to be trading with human body parts. Besides moral concerns, the high prices for brains could also force zombies into committing other crimes to pay for food.

The ones who do kill have to be dealt with just like every other criminal.

I would hope someone took said coroners and funeral directors to the bar for their deeply depraved behavior at selling the brains of the deceased. They haven't the right for such desecrated theft.

If one was a zombie I can't see why they should value such a life so much, knowing that if they didn't subsist on inhuman practice, they might kill and/or infect others. Most humans I know would sooner take their own life than put others at risk of such a gruesome fate. A tragic death is much to be preferred over an ignoble and selfish life.

Hopefully by some miracle one might be cured of this disease, or quarantined until one could be found.

This is surprisingly specific for a what-if scenario. You must have an exceptional imagination. I do, however, see the merit in asking. A fictional set of events or not it isn't all that difficult to align certain parts of it to issues that do exist in our reality.

I can't speak for everyone, but considering that many with non-human attributes have been able to find acceptance and aid in Everglade I would do whatever I was able to assist those affected. I would treat their case no differently than any other unless, of course, a different course of action would be to their greatest benefit.

They're not hurting anyone, though, right? So... as long as they're not killing anyone or trying to turn them into one of them without their permission then I don't think you have to do anything. They're people too, so it would be wrong to kill them.
