The United States Has Become A Nation Of Sheeple

You can either follow the herd of you can decide to find your own path.  One of the things that greatly frustrates me is that so many Americans allow other people to do their thinking for them.  We have become a nation of sheeple, and the vast majority of the shepherds that we are relying on for guidance are frauds and imposters.  The blind are leading the blind, and we are slowly but surely committing national suicide.  If a lot more of us don’t start to learn to think for ourselves, I fear that the vast majority of the population will never wake up until it is far too late.

Let me ask you a very simple question.

What is on your mind today?

If you are not preoccupied with work or with family matters, then you are probably thinking about something that you have been fed through the mainstream media.  Just think about this for a few moments.  When you are sitting around the dinner table or you are chatting with someone at work, what do you tend to talk about?  If you are like most people, many of your conversations will be about something that you saw on the news, a new movie that you just watched, or a sporting event that has just happened.

Most of the time, we believe that certain things are important because someone else has told us that they are important.

And the most prominent voices of all are the six gigantic media corporations that control about 90 percent of the news, information and entertainment that we get through our televisions.  I know that statistic is a bit hard to believe, so let me share a little excerpt from a fact checking website called truthorfiction.com

Summary of eRumor:

Six corporations own 90% of news media companies in America.

The Truth:

This claim is true.

News Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, CBS and Comcast own 90% of the TV stations, radio stations, movies, magazines and newspapers that 277 million Americans rely on for news and entertainment.

Of course those six corporate behemoths are owned by the elite of the world, and that is why “the news” never seems to change very much no matter where you get it.

It is imperative that we understand that everyone has an agenda.  Every single movie, television show, documentary and news program is trying to shape how you think.  Sadly, many people completely disengage their mental filters once they sit down in front of the television, and they just passively consume whatever “programming” that is offered to them without even thinking twice about where it is coming from.

Earlier today, I discovered that the following story was trending online: “This Calf Looks Suspiciously Like Gene Simmons And People Want Answers”.

Why is that story trending?

Well, the truth is that at some point a big media gatekeeper somewhere decided that this is something that we should all be focusing on.

But of course there are thousands of pressing issues that would be far more worthy of our attention.  The key is to keep us all confused and distracted so that we can never focus on what is truly important.

One of the biggest reasons why we are so easily controlled as a society is because our system of public education does not teach critical thinking skills to our young people.  Instead, most educational time is spent on trying to memorize facts and figures that can be regurgitated when it is time to take a test.  And any time that is spent on the “why questions” is usually spent forcing “progressive values” down the throats of our students.  No wonder our young people are rapidly falling behind the rest of the industrialized world.

Did you ever see the big Hollywood film that was entitled “Idiocracy“?  Sometimes I feel like I am permanently trapped inside that movie.  If you ask people why they do the things that they do on a daily basis, most of them cannot give you a coherent answer.

I am even discovering that this is true in the world of politics.  I have been asking people who they are planning to vote for in different races here in Idaho and why they plan to vote that way.  Sadly, most voters cannot give me any sort of a coherent answer.  Most of the time people seem to be backing a certain candidate “because that is what everybody else seems to be doing”.

And something that greatly disturbs me is how we tend to put political leaders up on pedestals.  If they are on our “team”, we tend to shower them with worship and pretend that they can’t do anything wrong.  But if they are on the other team, we tend to throw as much mud as we possibly can.

Instead of being obsessed with personalities, we need to stand on our principles instead.  If our leaders do things that are right, then we should praise those actions.  But if they do what is wrong, then we should be willing to hold them accountable.

I have been having a number of conversations about “being red-pilled” lately, and if you ever watched “The Matrix” then you know exactly what I am talking about.  Most people out there still don’t seem to realize that the world system is built on a pyramid of lies.  From a very early age, we are told lie after lie, and once you start to “wake up” one of the first responses is often intense anger.

If you don’t know what I am talking about, I would encourage you to start questioning everything.  Once you really start digging, you will quickly discover that many of the “truths” that society takes for granted are not actually so solid after all.

If you seek the truth with all of your heart, you will find it, and it will set you free.

But breaking free of the programming that the world system is constantly feeding us is the first step, and that is not always easy to do.

    LOL!!! duh…yep, Americans are just dumb a$$ sheep…they don’t care WHAT’S happening…don’t ask those couch potatoes to get off their butts to actually save themselves….they demand someone ELSE do it!!!

    • Geno X

      You don’t know Americans. This country has been hijacked in a major way. There’s plenty of the silent majority like me that sees all the evidence of corruption. You’re talking about every other country that never stood up for themselves or created a meaningful revolution… not a single country. America is the single country that’s done tgat, however, it’s been hijacked.

      • ZombieGirl

        I AM American…born & bred New Yorker…I speak from personal experience–they’re idiots, lay, ignorant, stupid couch potatoes who will not even lift a finger to research one little topic. We have been hijacked because because Americans have allowed it for the above reasons. Next topic??

    Nice rant Mr. wanna be politician but, as typical, no solutions.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      Only sheeple expect others to provide them with ready-made solutions.

      • G’ma G

        Not necessarily Rev. Many of us on the active front are always on the look out for other people’s ideas. Real solutions are not ready made. They almost always require the work of taking different parts of different ideas and creating something new and effective for the particular situation. The more we put our heads together the smarter we are.
        Yaking about the problems is like beating a dead horse. It isn’t going to get it up and moving in the direction we want. While the yaking is part of the process to identify what needs to change, without proposed solutions (action) it just comes out as whiney, vapid and patri-idioctic–doesn’t really help the cause.

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          A person doesn’t have to be an ASE-certified mechanic to know what’s wrong with their car – even if they can’t “solve” the problem, they can still be more than capable of figuring out what’s wrong.

          • G’ma G

            Point well taken.

  • James Wood

    Have noticed that most people can’t hold a 10 minute conversation about world politics yet they had their panties all in a bunch over the past election. In fact could not find a single person during the last debate between Hilary and Trump that had even a clue as to our being a Defcon level 3, an increased readiness for Nuclear War.

    “Has Become”? How about “Has Been,” ever since the inception of TV. The sheeple mentality has always been a part of human nature (i.e. wanting someone to do for us what we should be doing for ourselves), but when movies were invented the ruling class soon learned that they could use the movies to exploit the sheeple weakness in people and to use the movies as a subtle weapon of mass mind control. Then when TV came along the mass mind control mushroomed exponentially, so that today (65 years after TV really started to hit the market in the US) the mass mind control is practically omnipresent in the US.

    The New World Order think tank scientists have so perfected the brainwash apparatus that the New World Order mass mind control is beyond being challenged. There are many people who are starting to find this out and are getting rid of TV and movies, but unless it becomes a trend, the New World Order will soon absorb the US into the world system. Actually, unfortunately, we’re just about there.

    • WeWa

      Yes indeedy.

        I gave up the tv years ago. I did continue to watch a lot of movies, rentals, on-line, etc. Just within the last couple months I have stopped watching new movies because the plots are all the same. It is very interesting to re-watch an old favorite for the specific purpose of spotting the brain washing components. Even more interesting is to do this over the last 20 years to see how our society along with our mentality has been herded into accepting so many bad things.

    “We’ve become a nation of wolves, ruled by sheep. Owned by swine, overfed, and put to sleep.”

    “Then they outsourced my job, gave a raise to my boss.
    Bailed out the banks but billed me for the loss.
    They say we must submit and be one with the machines
    because the kingdom of fear needs compliance to succeed.

    Work, buy, consume, die.” – Otep
