If you watch zombie movies, you’d probably know that common scene where a character (often a main character) mistakes a zombie for a friend/family/rescuer and stands calmly next to them – until, too late, the undead is chewing on their brains and the hapless victim becomes undead too.

But I get the distinct impression that to find yourself alongside them in the green/left movement would be akin to standing next to a zombie.
