Alternative media has lately taken to using the term "sheeple" to reference the overwhelming mass of people. It is a play on the words sheep and people. The intent is fully derogatory, seeing how sheep are the foremost ambassadors of 'group think', and famous for being foolish. And people, as in, people.
I just wonder where alternative media journalists are standing when they exclude themselves from the sheeple they so like to deride. What superior stance can they claim? Is their inside knowledge of the social engineering that is being marshaled against the peoples of the world any basis for such intellectual snobbery?
On the contrary, I blog this here today to lure alternative media down off their high horse with the declaration that we are all sheeple together, every last one of us. I say this from the perspective of one who used to look with disdain upon the "ignorant" masses. Why can't the sheeple not see what is coming? I often wondered with great perplexity. How can people be content to be reduced to regularly sated consumers in such perilous times? The concerns remain valid, but in my cogitations, I was excluding myself from the sheeple, as so many of my blogosphere peers continue to do.

Knowledge truly is useful in these critical end times. Yet it must be balanced with humility; which is really only a realistic realization of one's real position. I may know inside facts about the New World Order, secret societies, moral rot, Hollywood, pop cult-ure, economic collapse, military industrial complex and war, superviruses and superbugs, satellites in the sky, Big Brother surveillance, Lady Gaga and other dark sinister happenings. I might even know that the whole thing combines into a hell of an abominable demon-controlled principalities and powers of darkness enterprise. Knowing all this, humility is the only logical reaction to the question "What can I do about it?"
We are all sheeple together, upto and including humans coopted into this diabolical darkness. The only difference is which shepherd we listen to. If we were not sheeple, then how could we claim the promise oft recited in Psalm 23:1, "The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want"?
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
