“Is there a sadhu in the parliament?”

September 28, 2013

Speaking Tree: “Is India a Zombie Democracy?” by Sandesh Saboo asks:

Are our politician Hypnotized or berefft of consciousness and self awareness,Yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stmuli. Are they zombies?

Saboo defines:

What is a zombie? (Haitian Creole: zonbi; North Mbundu: nzumbe) is an animated corpse raised by magical means, such as witchcraft. The term is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli.

Citing folklore (see ZombieLaw on European writer zombie influences) and George Romero‘s Living Dead, and continuing:

Now watch the people in our parliament.They are suppose to vote as per the whip given to them.They have to defend what ever is given by the party bosses.If the party boss says devide the state they go and do it.In the name of discipline and party thoughts everything is super imposed.The top 10 to 15 will decide the everything.Everyone else have to fall in line.They cannot vote against the party whip.Even if they have a opposing view point they cannot vote according to the conscious they have.Is our democracy a ZOmbie democracy. They either listen to the party boss or to those who give them money to vote.This way or that way they are zombies.

Saboo asks “Is there a sadhu in the parliament?”

In Hinduism, sādhu (skt साधु sādhu, “good; good man, holy man”) denotes an ascetic, wandering monk. Although the vast majority of sādhus are yogīs, not all yogīs are sādhus. The sādhu is solely dedicated to achieving mokṣa (liberation), the fourth and final aśrama (stage of life), through meditation and contemplation of brahman. Sādhus often wear saffron-colored clothing, symbolizing their sanyāsa (renunciation).

Let’s add sadhu to the list of possible zombie cures. Also note again, white face paint, used in the wikipedia images of sadhu and reminiscent of clown make-up (particularly white-face clowns), and is similar to zombie cosplay. Ascetic clowns can serve a spiritual function. And see also juggalos.

Notice Grand Theft Auto 5 has a juggalo makeup – see TNB: “Five new characters for Grand Theft Auto V revealed” by Pete Blackburn:

This is awesome news considering I’d love to have the opportunity to kill some Juggalos

And did everyone already notice the game released on Occupy‘s birthday?


This article was about India but all of this zombie politics is just as applicable to US. The clowns in government or the clowns on the street. We are all clowns and all zombies. But Saboo points to the rupees – the money – “Why is Big business funding elections”
