“We laugh at sheep because sheep just follow the one in front.
We humans have out-sheeped the sheep, because at least the sheep need a sheep dog to keep them in line.
Humans keep each other in line. And they do it by ridiculing or condemning anyone who commits the crime, and that’s what it’s become, of being different.” ― David Icke
The word Sheeple is a combination of the words “sheep” and “people.” A person ruled by a herd mentality, going with the crowd and undermining their unique identity and voice.
Sheeple are people who are caught up in the illusory world that we believe is real.
They believe that driving an SUV, getting married and having kids is the only way to live.
They work a 9 to 5 job as they are told to, and they watch endless sports or reality shows on TV.
They are known as Joe six pack and Suzy soccer mom.
They feel so safe believing reality is what they are told from the mainstream media and what they learn in school.
They basically perceive reality through a lens that was created by someone else.
Sheeple believe in traditions. They have the same get togethers every year that no one really wants to attend. They have the same friends and seldom reach out to meet new and different people.
Basically sheeple don’t like change and they would rather keep playing it safe by doing the same things over and over than try something new.
Sheeple are very insecure people.
They only make a change to something new once the majority of people have already done it.
I remember when hardly anyone drove an SUV.
Now it seems everyone has one even when it’s not really practical to have one.
They are more expensive to fill with gas, to repair, the insurance is higher and they take twice as long to clean as a car does.
Sheeple are mind zombies.
They love being told what to believe, and they seldom think outside the box.
Sheeple don’t like original thoughts, instead they choose to follow the status quo. They believe what the majority believes to be true even if evidence points to the contrary.
Sheeple mainly live life through their very limited mind. Sheeple must always be doing something even if that doing takes them no where.
Sheeple fall in line with every popular trend or theory of the time and worship celebrities with utter devotion.
Sheeple don’t like it when new information is brought forth that may contradict their own beliefs. They may even get violent and verbally aggressive about it.
Sheeple are like herd animals that as long as they are fed, they don’t much pay attention, don’t complain much. They go along to get along.
And when Sheeple do complain they usually just repeat the complaints of the general consensus.
“People are sheep. TV is the shepherd.” ― Jess C. Scott, Literary Heroin (Gluttony): A Twilight Parody
Sheeple are highly domesticated people. So much so they wouldn’t have a clue of how to survive if the power grid went down.
Hint – Start your vegetable garden now. Get back in touch with mother earth and unplug from the electric drug once in a while.
Sheeple are mindless followers, I don’t know if they would know what to do if someone didn’t tell them.
Sheeple are the most inauthentic people you will ever meet.
Their life is one lie after another. They seldom speak the truth and wouldn’t admit a mistake or failure if their life depended on it.
Sheeple tell you how great you are to your face and once your back is turned they speak poorly of you.
Sheeple are always chasing something. They buy the latest piece of fitness equipment three times a year but can’t seem to lose any weight.
Sheeple do things that they are supposed to do whatever that means. I guess that means doing what everyone else is doing.
People are not born with sheeple syndrome. They are taught/programmed by parents, peers, teachers and other authority figures.
What’s the first nail to get hit?
The one that stands out the most.
This is exactly what keeps people stuck in the sheeple syndrome mindset. What happened to you when you were a kid and you tried to be authentic, to be different from the pack?
You were teased,condemned and vilified for being your true authentic self. Don’t be different, we don’t like that.
Don’t express your true self. Don’t express your uniqueness because you will suffer the consequences for your actions.
If you suffer from sheeple syndrome don’t fret. There is help available to you. It’s called “waking up” and unplugging from the herd mentality that has plagued people for far too long.
It takes real courage to become an awakened person.
This means speaking and living your truth even if it goes against conventional wisdom. This means pissing people off, perhaps even ending some relationships.
The great thing is when you disconnect from sheeple syndrome you will attract other people who are awake like you.
You see, in order for our world to change we need everyone, at least most to become awakened to help create the new world, not just participate in it as a spectator.
I have a prediction for the future in regards to human behavior. Being weird, being different, being authentic will be the norm.
To conform will be viewed as lame and unoriginal; which it is.
“In 1896 the famous John Dewey, then at the University of Chicago, said that independent, self-reliant people were a counter-productive anachronism in the collective society of the future.
In modern society, said Dewey, people would be defined by their associations”not by their own individual accomplishments.
In such a world people who read too well or too early are dangerous because they become privately empowered, they know too much, and know how to find out what they don,t know by themselves, without consulting experts”. — Kurt Johmann, quoting John Taylor Gatto
“I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.” – Alexander the Great
“The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his own are the same.” – Stendhal
“The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty.
Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.” – Abraham Lincoln
