[S1E1] Secret Origins : Part I
First, it does not represent natural outlook of Russian people. Latter are, by and large, friendly to outside world, eager for experience of it, eager to measure against it talents they are conscious of possessing, eager above all to live in peace and enjoy fruits of their own labor. Party line only represents thesis which official propaganda machine puts forward with great skill and persistence to a public often remarkably resistant in the stronghold of its innermost thoughts. But party line is binding for outlook and conduct of people who make up apparatus of power--party, secret police and Government--and it is exclusively with these that we have to deal.
[S1E1] Secret Origins : Part I
It should not be thought from above that Soviet party line is necessarily disingenuous and insincere on part of all those who put it forward. Many of them are too ignorant of outside world and mentally too dependent to question [apparent omission] self-hypnotism, and who have no difficulty making themselves believe what they find it comforting and convenient to believe. Finally we have the unsolved mystery as to who, if anyone, in this great land actually receives accurate and unbiased information about outside world. In atmosphere of oriental secretiveness and conspiracy which pervades this Government, possibilities for distorting or poisoning sources and currents of information are infinite. The very disrespect of Russians for objective truth--indeed, their disbelief in its existence--leads them to view all stated facts as instruments for furtherance of one ulterior purpose or another. There is good reason to suspect that this Government is actually a conspiracy within a conspiracy; and I for one am reluctant to believe that Stalin himself receives anything like an objective picture of outside world. Here there is ample scope for the type of subtle intrigue at which Russians are past masters. Inability of foreign governments to place their case squarely before Russian policy makers--extent to which they are delivered up in their relations with Russia to good graces of obscure and unknown advisors whom they never see and cannot influence--this to my mind is most disquieting feature of diplomacy in Moscow, and one which Western statesmen would do well to keep in mind if they would understand nature of difficulties encountered here.
It is unknown where the CRM originated from or if they possibly even existed before the zombie apocalypse. They mark people as an "A" or a "B" but is also unknown what exactly that means. They trade supplies in exchange for people which means they must have a large amount of food and water. The CRM clearly operates on a large scale as its members have been seen in Virginia and Texas and are well-armed. One of their pilots, Isabelle, kidnapped a woman named Althea, who was been filming a dead CRM member in Texas and inspected the maps the man carried with him but refused to bring her to the base all she asked was that Althea destroyed any evidence of their existence and refused to tell anyone about their existence. Althea expressed interest in coming with Isabelle but she warned her how her group can be very dangerous. After sharing a kiss, they parted ways and Isabelle returned to her base and Althea kept her promise and so the existence of the group was kept a secret. 041b061a72
