We The Sheepeople

Nov 12, 2012 by

The majority of people simply vote party. If you are in a republican district a republican will win, democrat likewise. In a state the dominant party wins senator. The Electoral College then is simply a reflection of the state. Party voters are caught up in ideological culture. Ideological culture is the largest faction of all. Sheepeople trained from an early age by parents, education and society to believe that if you want to keep your stuff vote republican, and if you want to make yourself feel better about owning more stuff than someone else vote democrat. States with large numbers of independents become important. Independents are always the key because they are more likely to vote for the party that influences them more with advertisement. It is not like independents are better thinkers; they are simply doing their duty to vote and whatever party makes a more appealing plea (giving or protecting their stuff based on fear of the future or hope) for their vote wins. It is simply appetite. Unless an ultra charismatic candidate runs there will be no deviation from this format. An ultra charismatic candidate winning does not guarantee anything except that the sheepeople are easily beguiled by shinny things that talk. The historical cycle becomes tyranny of the few that possess obscene amounts of stuff forcing the revolution of the mass of sheepeople for the purpose of getting stuff disguised as gaining rights (legitimizing the revolution), mass greed and prejudice develops (unequal distribution of property) ending in tyranny again by those that have acquired obscene amounts of stuff etc. There is a point at the beginning of the revolution that virtue becomes important. Thinkers (Homosapiens) become temporary leaders of the sheepeople (Neanderthals) by uttering thoughts of virtue that can be used to rally the faction but are not sustainable because virtue is not the true goal. Remember what John Adams said at the time of the revolution, that if virtue could not be fostered in greater numbers then already existed, tyranny would result. Bring on the tyranny!

    “The people never have the power. Only the illusion of it. And here’s the real secret: they don’t want it. The responsibility is too great to bear. It’s why they are so quick to fall in line as soon as someone takes charge. They want to be told what to do. They yearn for it.”
