Raising Zombies - Family Life in the Modern Age
Not for the faint of heart or easily offended, Raising Zombies - Family Life in the Modern Age is J. Thorn’s humorous rant about being a teenager in the 1980s and life as a parent today. Using his experience as an educator and consultant for almost two decades, he exposes the erosion of independent thought in our schools at the hands of political correctness, organized religion, the self-esteem movement, and blind patriotism. Thorn peppers his short essays with a healthy dose of rock history while thumbing his nose at the establishment he desperately tries to escape.
From Raising Zombies - Family Life in the Modern Age:
“We sat next to each other at lunch and threw rocks at all of the popular kids during recess.”
“People resent it when others reach the same goal without struggle or effort. We want kids today to suffer through the same crap we did because otherwise we feel cheated.”
“Drew was the kid who liked to kick you in the balls in the bathroom for no reason and then leave and tell the teacher you were picking on him.”
If you’re a fan of Adam Carolla, Justin Halpern, or Chuck Klosterman, you are going to love Raising Zombies - Family Life in the Modern Age.
