Will the general population always be sheeple? Is it easier to belive the lies we're told then accept the truth behind them? Is there any hope of waking up or are we in a downward spiral?

Sheeple, to me is a derogatory term. But I think Americans in general are
trained by the educational system to follow authority figures, and obey.

Nonconformist are ridiculed or shunned. Original thinking is discouraged.

How can the general populace "wake up" when the MSM is controlled by the same system that has givin us public education and fast food.

If it weren't for the www we all would be zzzzzzzzzzzz.

I'm no sheeple, I'm a dis-info agent!...or is it a moron? Idiot? Which one was I labeled last for merely keeping an open mind on everything rather than deciding on a given subject right now and refusing to budge no matter what?

Exacatly the term works both ways many of us on this site can easily be classed sheeple as well.

Will pretentious teenagers ever stop calling people who don't agree with them sheeple?

would sheeple denote the majority?

for example if all other "individuals" shared your same beliefs would they aswell as yourself be sheeple?

it would be like becoming (for example) a goth or punk to rebel against a system to which you disagree and to promote self realisation only to realise tht all those around you share the same belief.

To not be a "sheeple" you would have to develope an esoteric thought system.

However, due to the fact that all peoples current conciousness is based on past experiece, there is a possibility that some will have had shared experiences and when the majority of those people culminate they too could be referred to as sheeple.

Being sheeple is not a bad thing, only the reasoning by which you gain that shared opinion not based of irrefutable fact or personal experience should only be defined as ignorant.
