Our world is such terrible and brutal, Robert Kirkman just want to show us what will happened with people if the last rules of morally will falling. TWD is a story about people, only about them. Zombies is just the background, instead of zombies could it be world war, natural disaster, etc.
A moral apocalypse it's what is waiting for us
I'm not so sure. There's plenty of darkness in history, but mankind has still found plenty of ways to avoid moral apocalypse even in times of dire distress.
