Sheeple!

Prompt ~

Dom was watching the TV. Results of the recent elections were being announced and discussed.

He muttered, ‘sheeple’.

What? – I asked.

Icons who have changed the course of human history have been cattle herders, Krishna – the cow-herd, Jesus – the sheep-herd, Mohammed – the camel-herd, Moses – the sheep-herd to name a few.

Where is this leading to?

Successful leaders know the difference between sheep and people yet appreciate the essential animality of both.

You are not happy with the results?

I am happy to see sheeple breakthrough the paddock. Finally the information cascade has resulted in collective decision.

  1. Love the word sheeple. And it’s good to have a decisive outcome, even if it’s not the one all sheep/ people wanted. I always enjoy the philosophy in your stories.

  2. ‘Sheeple breakthrough the paddock’ looks like it. Wait and watch ‘ achchhe din aane wale hai or……’ Successful leaders know the difference between sheep and people yet appreciate the essential animality of both., Very insightful.
