If the people are meek and apathetic, their government will take advantage of them.<br />
It can be applied to our situation today. <br />
It's up to us to become more like wolves to keep the government more like sheep who will follow what we direct them to do.
In a democracy , people usually get the Govt. they deserve. (Peza, 2010).
Only one problem with that statement, and yes, our government. The US is not set up as a Democracy. It is a Republic. The US has used the word Democracy loosely until people have forgotten that we are a Republic, the Constitution was based on a Republic, and it is being trampled on to the point that it is almost unrecognizable. We need to get back to the principles that our Republic was founded upon. I suggest that you read The 5000 Year Leap. It's an eye opener.
There are so many ways to take this quote.<br />
A nation of followers will generate a government of leaders.<br />
A group of Employees will create success to their employer.<br />
A nation consists of MANY and a government consists of FEW, in comparison. Although wolves have more power over sheep... if the sheep outnumber the wolf 1,000 to 1 that wolves will not survive without appeasing the sheep. Therefor, the saying in this case would be "A government of wolves will beget a a nation of sheep"
I would be inclined to agree. That's what makes America great. Less sheep per capita.
