I Believe the Majority of People Are Mindless Sheep

People who don't want to be just one of the herd. 776 People

    People do what society tells them to,

    adapting this image so they can look 'perfect' and 'beautiful' to try and fit in because most people who don't fit in get punished in one way or another for it.

    This happened almost a year ago

    but I will never forget it. During the spring of 2013 I had to take the bus to visit my doctor for my check up. I dozed off and missed my stop so I had to walk a few more blocks. While I was walking I witnessed an accident. An old woman around 60-70 years old on her bicycle...

    Control Is Everything

    Not So Much Mindless As Just Weary.......

    Most people go to work, take care of their families, raise their kids, and struggle with the day to day stuff. When their day is done, they mostly just want to collapse in an overstuffed chair and watch some mindless TV. They're just tired and they're tired because they're...

    Sadly, most just wonder, aimless, afraid and a shell of what they could be. In light of recent comments: I want you to know I mean no harm. I just want to see autonomous, happy beings on the planet whatever...under no delusions.

    He Is Sooooo Funny

    The point of no return for me was when the One World Government/New World Order crowd did those criminal bailouts of the banks. They just brazenly showed their total power and control—and the sheeple just sat back and took it. (Though polls did show that 75% of the sheeple...

    To be honest I thought this had a lot of sense

    put into it. I also believe that people are indeed becoming sheepish. Once I asked around my peers the question " what do you want to be in the futeure?" And generally I would get the answer I don't know. I remember something a teacher of mine pointed out and it started to make...

    The characteristic that defines a sheeple is

    not necessarily a lack of knowledge, but an unwillingness to consider or embrace obvious logic or truth in order to protect their egos and biases from harm. A sheeple's mindset is driven by self centered motives. They would like to blame the mainstream media for the ideas of...

    The group has a consciousness of its own, be it less developed than the consciousness of each of its members.  That makes groups untrustworthy and unpredictable.  Groups are prone to stereotypes, simplifications, conventionalism and narrow-mindedness.  I'm very...
