Why are so many of the communities we encounter on the show filled with helpless citizens. The Governor presided over lot of them, ASZ was filled with them, Hilltop is almost completely populated with them, and now we learn the Ezekiel is keeping things from the masses because they'll be afraid. At this point, shouldn't everyone be more aware and capable? For me, this is starting to distract. I realize some people would excel in their abilities - but really? How could anyone in this environment be so helpless and continue to survive? Does the helpless civilian technique work for you?
