What the Heck is a Sheeple?

Are you a Sheeple? Most anyone you ask would reply with a quick "NO!" and they may even get upset with you for having the audacity to even suggest such a thing. Chances are they really don't know just what a sheeple is.

Simply put and in a nutshell a Sheeple is a person who believes what authority figures tell them without substantial questions. They trust the government and the media to be honest. They support causes without knowing the real truth behind them. They vote for crooks because they believe their lies.

Don't be a Sheeple! If you are a Sheeple it's not too late to wake up and look around you. Read, think, investigate, consider, keep an open mind. Truth is everywhere yet it is still less common than the lies.

What the heck is a Sheeple anyway?

"...persons who voluntarily acquiesce to a perceived authority figure's suggestion without critical analysis or sufficient research to understand the ramifications of that decision. By doing so, Sheeple undermine their own individuality and may willingly give up their rights. The implication of the term is that people fallaciously appeal to authority and believe or do what they are told by perceived authority figures who they view as trustworthy. The term is generally used in a political, social, and sometimes spiritual sense..."

To accept the group mentaility and opinion as fact without examination. Not only to be told what to do, but accepting the paradigm of thought as absolute thereby removing the weight of personal responsibility in the making of decisions..."
