I have used this term on a number of occasions recently only to receive a blank stare of confusion from the person with who I am conversing. And Survival Husband thought I made a typo in a recent post. Let me define this term for you.
Sheeple (from “sheep” and “people”) is a term of disparagement, in which people are likened to sheep.
The term is often used to denote persons who voluntarily acquiesce to a perceived authority figure’s suggestion without critical analysis or sufficient research to understand the ramifications of that decision. By doing so, Sheeple undermine their own individuality and may willingly give up their rights. The implication of the term is that people fallaciously appeal to authority and believe or do what they are told by perceived authority figures who they view as trustworthy. The term is generally used in a political, social, and sometimes spiritual sense.
Preppers (and readers of this blog) are not Sheeple, that’s a certainty. But sadly, there is a still a large contingent of our population that will continue to follow the heard until they waddle over the side of the mountain and tumble in to the abyss. They will never know what happened to them. Sad when you think about it.
Front yard garden woes
Did you catch the story about the woman who was charged with up to 93 days in jail for growing veggies in her front yard? Boy oh boy.
