Sheeple is a term of disparagement, a portmanteau created by combining the words "sheep" and "people." It is often used to denote persons who acquiesce to authority, and thus undermine their own human individuality. The implication of sheeple is that as a collective, people believe whatever they are told, especially if told so by authority figures, without processing it to be sure that it is an accurate representation of the real world around them. The term is generally used in a political or religious sense. The term is also used for those who are tolerant of government intrusion and regulation.
People you meet every day.
People who say it is ok to force a state of homeschooling parents to vaccinate their children by imprisonment and excessive fining. People who say it is only right to take away the option of home birth with a competent and well-trained attendee because "birth belongs in the hospital"...
Heaven forbid we think outside the flock.. rather than being mindlessly herded together under GroupThink mentality.
THINK OUTSIDE THE FLOX, SHEEPLE!!!
Did you know that the fence we are stuck in is actually quite low? It seems high only because you are on all fours. But if you stand up, you gain two feet!
But what about the Sheep Dog?! Trust me, his bark is worse than his bite...
Aargh. Going to go have some pomegranate tea and snuggle my kiddos.
