These emigrants, our ancestors, didn't bear enmity towards the countries they left – quite the contrary.They weren't “Going Galt” or being “unpatriotic” by leaving, as they often left out of sadness and melancholy, not anger.Every square foot of earth is already spoken for by one (or more) nation states, every physical frontier long since closed.With our bodies hemmed in, our minds have only the cloud – and it is the cloud that has become the destination for an extraordinary mental exodus.A Conversation with Mutemath's Darren King Mike Ragogna: How are you, Darren? MR: What is your relationship like these days with religion? As a teen, you felt like you had to change the people around you and make everybody else just like me. So, it can wear you out a little bit as a kid, and I guess that's what that song is about--getting worn out with not feeling perfect and trying to make everyone else perfect too. But after episode 6.05 'Now', we are starting to see a little bit more into the mind of the leader of Alexandria, Deanna Monroe.
Yet while our ancestors had America as their ultimate destination, it is not immediately obvious where those seeking opportunity might head today.WARNING: SPOILERS OF THE WALKING DEAD SHOW AND COMICS FOLLOW! Throughout the episode we see her jumping back and forth between sane and unstable. Deanna was definitely a wildcard character in this past week.On top of that, she jots down an inspirational quote in Latin: Despite seeming composed, she has other moments that make us question her stability.In her first face-to-face Walker attack, she goes into a rage filled stabbing frenzy but does not go for the kill shot (the head). I understand that she has never had a personal encounter with a walker before but for someone who has been living in a zombie-filled world for the past two years and had a son who was a runner for the town, I would imagine that she has had some knowledge as to how to dispose of walkers.
