In 2011 a plan drafted by the U.S. Government called CONPLAN 8888-11, “Counter-Zombie Dominance” was revealed to the public. The document details a strategy to defend against a zombie attack. And, yes, it’s real.
We verified that the U.S. Government did, in fact, publish this report. And while reading it, we discovered some truly fresh thinking. In its own way it was innovatively brilliant—especially coming from a place where we might not expect such creative thinking, the United States Government.
Creators of the tongue and cheek “Counter-Zombie Dominance” document purposely chose zombies to disrupt their own tired-out thinking. The design of the plan produced serious strategic value. It is used to help defense plan creators and trainers explore unexpected, unplanned-for threats and learn how to strategically develop defenses for any possible variable or threat.
