    I think (I really do sometimes) that there is a fundamental theme in all of these presentations and that is the "single enemy" factor. What follows is typical reactionary behavior.

    All the rest is bending the basic sociological principals to make up a good story.

    Wow - I really know some big words.

    Agreed, and it can make or break a series for me. Walking Dead does a pretty good job in this area, Revolution - sucks.

    Very much this. And in short order those that fall apart will be dead from one cause or another. What you'll end up with is psychologically damaged people that are still able to function. Sorta like we have now. :) ;)
