Your Definition of Sheeple?

RE: Your Definition of Sheeple?
Quote:And anyone who uses money, pays taxes, votes, etc., has been tacitly signed up for this job, whether they recognize it or not.
Myself included. Pretty much everyone is more or less and individually to varying degrees. As long as a person is playing the game they are sheep. To elaborate a bit. Your support for something is akin to following and sheep (IMO) are defined as followers.
So let's define support as payment of self. In that context we have the following.
Monetary tribute is the most obvious form of payment. Supporting an business, charity, organization, institution or idea - each group is comprised of individuals. It can be direct or ripple indirectly. Everything you buy is taxed at some point. Money itself is taxed via usury and inflation. Using and accepting money as something as value propagates and reinforces the faith. Where it eventually circulates is hard to predict but you can determine a few layers of beneficiaries.
Say you buy some Nike shoes. You would be casting your vote for a corporation (a shell), the shareholders, the retail outlet, government(s) through taxes/tariffs, condoning the employment and environmental practices of the company. Take it another level and you are supporting the banks and investment corporations they use, what they choose to buy (computers, machinery..), the advertising companies, the people they sponsor (Tiger Woods) and who the shareholders the corporations back politically. You get the point.
You vote with your dollars.
In return for compensation people pledge their time and submit to corporate law and culture. Servitude to the corporation begins the second you punch in they own you you under the direct law of the corporate government. This can have implications on your behaviour outside of work as well. Non disclosure, politics, associations ..
If you work for a bank, tyrannical multinational or even a local business that doesn't fit with your value system. You enrich that company (exceptions: infiltration, useless worker*). You are a not only a sheep but a cog in machinations of the parasite. This extends to volunteer work like collecting donations for UNICEF for example. Obviously campaigning for a national party would be sheepish as well.
A contribution of time, talent and labour is the single biggest force we can exert upon society. If we choose to partake in the job market - best pick we something that reflects our values and does not force compromise or submission to a corporate culture.
* Even if a person isn't contributing or is a drain on the corporation surely there is something more productive to lend your time to.
Paying attention or mind to something is allowing that information to penetrate your independent thoughts. It's not so much what we read, watch or listen to it's how you distill it and how we interpret it to form our personal policy towards action. This is independent of medium although some leave an individual more prone to suggestion than others.
Don't be a sheep. Own your thoughts.
Personal influence can be expressed in speech, words, video, gesture, music, art and It can re-assert, spin, instill or support an ideology, thought process, purported fact or action. The creative process can shed light on a perspective or introduce a new idea. Original thought is sorely lacking in sheep. Our education system is leveraged towards the regurgitation of facts.
Free thought, creativity and voluntarily acting upon your values is the basis of independence in direct opposition to the herd mentality.
There are no others, there is only us.

RE: Your Definition of Sheeple?
I'd disagree we're all sheeple to some degrees. Animals yes and it's easy to keep it simple to follow. First off there is the divide between those who eat the meat and those who don't, and those who are herded by the Shepard, and those who "prey on the flock".
Those who don't eat the meat are the sheep, the cow and the horse, now some may find paralls from animal farm here but they hold true so i'll agree.
Sheep are the ultimate follower of the Shepard (government/ crown), they are soft, and very vunerable, many americans and other civilized countries and devout religous ones will find they are mostly comprised of this type of citizen (commonly young/old/fem/gay). They contribute though, and work and follow all commands, agree with all ideas, breed and are very reliant on MSM.
Cow: we know they from the country side they fill trailer parks, and ghettos, stupid mostly large and unproductive (but they keep the social service industry/ nanny state running quite nicely) they follow laws, believe MSM, and are peaceful (relatively) they read the inquirer and believe as readily as other older works of censored fiction!
Horse: the blue collar and back bone of the farm, they are the union members, political card carriers, and good nature d industrialist (they're ever rare) Real charity folks, they tend to not all be large muscular men, but like real horses they come in all sizes and cultures, but are classed by there hard selfless works for the "Farm" most often blind to the truth and who normally have forsaken "real "life like family, or self so in the end it's off to the "glue factory" for them some Old age home with no old friends, alone...
Then there are the loyal to the Shepard, but who will eat some meat eating meat is not literal here but is metaphorical like this whole I guess essay by the time I'm done for the story eating meat is the willingness to break or bend a law or rule for your own personal comfort, not accepting just what the landscape offers.
Now in the meat eaters there are two separate groups one the farm and one wild...let us look at the farm ones: Pig, Dog, farm hand.
Pig: many of us know pigs they are mostly loyal to the Shepard, fear the wild animals, but will steal some free cable or watch a crime with out reporting it if it means they will suffer some fear. They are your suburban level drug users... DWI's some are merchants, they often come with a sense of entitlement, an will at times prey on the sheeple when it means there troth is more full... "Like a piggy!"
Dog:Arrrr the every loyal ever useful pet of the Shepard, even let into the house theses are your cops, your security, your first responders, they willingly put there life on the line at the bidding of the "master" and do so happily for scraps, some will eat a bit more (not to be confused with rabid dog!), but for the most part are there to aid the smooth running of the farm and to keep the other listed animals in check.
And the folks like the dog who they represent suffer as varried a fate as those of the household pet, some are lost during there life... (remembered fondly) as in lost during duty or during some tragic circumstance. then there is the kept in doors dog in old age, senior brass of the establishment of medicine, municipal, and non military gun warring positions... rewards for life long service Or like some farm dogs taken hunting, these are the scrubbed dogs, those who partake in black ops, or in covert shit and just vanish! there is thousands of them and many were once cops soldiers or related sub fields.
Farm Hand: Ahhh the farm hand, he too like the dog is let into the farm house (inside gov), some very talented dogs move on to act as farm hands, they are your front faced legit, quasi legit politicians, judges, and big industry types, very executives. They are yelled at if they are rough with the animals, but not put down. They can make up rules in the field as they require as long as it's with in guide with the "care" of the harvest. The sheep follow them, the pig and dog keep watch of them, and they being human keep to themselves for the most part only using the animals for what they are useful for... they often retire far better then any animal, some even get there own farm! but they serve the Shepard/farm first and foremost over all but maybe themselves as without the farm they have no place to be!
Now all the above are various folks lumped into sheeple, the black sheep and the pure as well as some who definitely have some defects to the wild most often a rabid or stray dog, or a fired Farm hand! The Wild are those who make up a very small but needed percentage of the population, though some more then others.
We have the rat, fox, boar, wolf, bear, snake and Eagle. Each unique and each seen from the perspective of the farm as harmful to there agenda. The dog, farmhand or the Shepard will act against them on sight!
The Rat:the rat is small, but if it's populations are left unchecked well... the same goes for it's populations they are eyes and ears, gossip, media folks, no care for what they see or say does but to say it, and to collect some crumbs on the way. they easy to kill, like the rat these folks are often with out infrastructure of a criminal sort, so they are afraid of fear, and it will cause them to flee, rather then fight. they are often discarded or forgotten service class workers who play the lotto, but who steal cable and who the hub cruises for chicks and the wife has a vice... often i have used the term morally bankrupt folks, but i have met some "rats " in the world (and I'm not talking snitches either as i know the term rat is also used for such though all snitches would fall under this broader category) who had some morals, but scored in every other way as a "Rat" either way they are not trust worthy folks, often they are very fam orientated, to the point of exclusion, or are solitary, they definitely do not breed for life. the tell tale signs are cowardliness, corruption, and dissertation.
Mr Fox: the infamous lone hunter, not pack-ish at all a bit of co habitation during the young's early life if at all. and a scavenger if not strategist. "Swiper no swiping". They are often thieves, embezzlers, defrauders, the old rogue of yesteryear. Often they will prefer to not be seen, or will co-habitate with other ruffians like the Raccoon. Often they come from either very wealthy and arrogant backgrounds giving them an arrogance that makes them not very well liked over the long term, but instant successes in the short, they make great sales persons, and many sales folks who are good at the pyramid like sales or financial arts.
Are all foxes bad? ... tough call As they are sneaky can they ever be trusted? some behave feeding off society in stock markets and realistate for a life time without notice from the Shepard, others do a run on the coop and get shot or mauled by the dog! depends on where you stand with the banker/thieving sort... often i feel there is no difference from a fox to a pig and often many a smart fox will look very much like a pig until it's too late and there alone with someone's nest Egg!
Boar: not common but very noted when they come around often taken down quick once spotted but they have the look of a pig so they can normally hide if behaved in a larger pen and if they keep at a distance from the Shepard or Farm hand. Maddoc was a recent boar, he dined on a lot of meat Often a smart boar will leave the farm after scoring some free pig grub, maybe goring a few sheep, those we never hear about. Often a boar tries to remain under any gov radar and will be involved in the affairs of the pigs and the sheeple until it either plumps up or is caught. Often you will find lawyers in this group, pimps, false religious, a profitable website, mid to upper level drug dealers, or lower level gov... any where where they can do little to no work and have plenty to eat(food/wealth)
Ahhh the Wolf:a pack animal and one who prefers to eat only meat, nomadic, and clever as the dog! Some even hope to one day go in the house and make it theirs ever territorial they can become in older years.
Wolves are your off the grid do as they please folks, some will maintain a sheepish appearance when amongst the sheep like the fox it knows to be seen it so be shot! These will be your conspiracy folks who act, folks who live in green homes not for the environment but for the no bills and no need to work day in day out. Often wolves will be in organized gangs like bikers, mafia's, militias. Most wolves will either try to look like either a sheep or a dog, when a dog not to confuse with a rabid dog aka a vigilante cop! The Wolf acting as the dog is the crooked copper who takes bribes, or who will assault a lesser meat eater (crook) as the sheeple they blend (well try) the sleeve of tats and the scar covered knuckles are dead give aways to the observant, or there the guy who doesn't work but has a nice house, often the wolf only interacts with the sheep when he needs something from them and often it will not be out in the open. When caught a wolf will kill when it can, often this is the end of the dog in mid life... Wolves come from various backgrounds, but they are some times noticeable. The good and the bad is with the wolf, as the weak are culled from the flock and they keep fox, and rat populations down, but if a wolf is too greedy he is either uncovered and caught or shot!
In turn these wolves though scary to the sheeple keep them alert and healthy. Without the above organizations and lone wolves, where would we get what is not on the farm! who puts the fear of the cops in the criminal? Who rescued us from the church! Who keeps entertainment alive? Who ensures we all don't become docile sheep? Though no farm can survive with too many wolves and so luckily as pack animals they fight each other more then the sheeple or the Shepard!
Bear: rare but not unheard of, of course now were used to just making up bears, but there real, and can be scary, from the farms perspective saddam was a bear osama bin ladin is a bear (with wings), Chavez. these are meat eaters who care so large they can devastate a farm if they get close enough, and were it not for they're lack of fondness for dogs, and the competition/hassle of wolves they probably would. though not all bears are so buff, but the local chapter head isn't one, or the toughest thug in the hood! no there wolves. To be a bear you have to have a nation of power, and be fully in the open, the reason why a bear is the easiest kill with the right gun is it is big, might be dumb enough to charge, at you, and leaves no hesitation of there intent. Though like a bear will have it's own cave off the farm from whence it came, and will flee once it feels threatened. Some bears are smarter then the average...."right boo boo?"
Snake:slithers along and keeps hidden, often they colonize, and masons and such societies are these stealthy predators, often they will have there own agenda, and some times it does coincide with the farm, example snakes eat rats, but they spook the calmer animals so are hunted of if exposed, of the meat eaters the snake is the hardest to kill as it can always get away through, the smallest of holes, I'd assume most dis-info folks and cult crazies fall into this order if they're smart. Some snakes have been known to charm farm hands, as the societies that make up the folks who r snakes are prone to help control elections, and laws, corrupting things to there will, and steering the farm in it's behaviors from the shadows.
And lastly the Eagle: the only bird of prey worth mentioning as it may be found here one only can guess, It is the firm and powerful grip of religion and religious folks who follow only gods laws (or an interpretation of it) but who strike and then fly from punishment hiding in the clouds and upon the trees of the farm. These are people who use the words of deities to get there means some are truly in the belief that what they do is good, and some arn't but what they all share is they feel there actions are judged upon high, and so the laws of the land that are not in there holy works are seen as trivial, beyond being a thorn in the farm's progression the eagle seems harmless to all but the other meat eaters, but it keeps the other animals looking up and so distracted from what the farm is doing, also, as those of the eagle enjoy an unparalleled protection of there speech and in some cases actions it gives the illusion of freedom to the sheeple, giving hope to others that they could fly when they know full well sheep can't fly lol but as many here know what is there great gift is also the eagles inability to achieve power (long ago the Snake clipped those wings!): difference, the eagles are not united, they are territorial like the wolf and so can not work together to do any true harm, though if the farmer were to train the Eagles to sing as one...
Other animals of note is the deer: they are the of grid law/god fearing folks like Amish, Mennonites, they don't eat the meat, but they are not loyal to the Shepard, and if they get too plentiful they are shot! And of course the chicken: if you have not yet asked why this farm staple is not listed above? It is the chicken is no one person rather it is a different part of the farm (society) it is the economy! more chickens = more eggs... hence there guarded but ever the wolf and fox and even the bear will snatch either an egg or a chicken if possible we call that having OUR piece of the Pie!
Hope you enjoyed a different take on the whole sheeple/ Us vs Them thing. So what are you is now the question?
Remember Knowledge is the only thing THEY can't take from you, and Knowledge is Know how, and Know how is Power!!!
Live long and Prosper!!!! Have a plan beyond words, and worry not of why the storm is coming as to how you're going to survive in it!!!!

RE: Your Definition of Sheeple?
insofar as i think deathamyl totally missed the point of the posts, yet makes a valuable contribution to the delineation of different farm animal designations, the issue remains:
being sheeple means playing their game...and their game is our game, the same one that recognizes the farm structure as valid or adequate.
At the bottom line, for the most part, by the best analysis, as far as i can tell, etc...
If we keep using money (which you, dear reader, and I, alike, do) we are sheeple.
this is by no means putting any negative judgment on the idea of a tradable mode of exchange,
in order for any sort of accountability, we need to know what that money is based in, and that it isn't a bunch of secret mah-fuckas pretending to run the show.
it's all ok for us to be different farm animals, if and only if we sign up for the different roles available to us, instead of having them forced upon us by a statist financial system that compels us to comply.
let rats be rats and farm hands keep sheep in order.
I'd rather be a wolverine...
