But that's why I'm saying YOU have to start small. And then let people come to you.
I agree though, it'd be hard. That's a given. But hell, I'd prefer it over just moving everywhere pretending that this life solves anything.
You missing a point though, what you propose requires a few things.. a fantastic leader, a workable plan, resources, knowledge and a stable environment.... the bodies are just needed to make it happen.
Without all of those things, rebuilding isn't possible.
You need a leader who can keep people in line, focused and maintain morale.
You need a plan that sounds more than a pipedream in the face of the "end of the world"
It takes resources, even scavenged, to build with..... fuel, food, building materials, guns, ammo, clothing.
Knowledge is essential. You need knowledge of building, maintaining modern equipment (if you can keep it running) growing food, medicine, etc, etc.
Finally, you need a stable environment.... that means a zombie free area... that's also defensible against human enemies as well.
Also, about your point about "people stupid enough to get eaten by slow moving corpses"... keep in mind that anyone who dies becomes a walker.... and the higher the population density... the more there will be.
More walkers, in smaller cramped areas (like a city) makes for a VERY hostile environment.
