We Are Not Sheeple

“A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the Police State Dictatorship it’s going to get.”
— Ian Williams Goddard

I received the sheep cartoon and thought it was particularly poignant in light of our world today.

  1. hey, hey, hey! The iNAUGURAL POST! thank you so much, Peter – and so perfect.

  2. Trevor is right!
    I just listened to 5 people giving “50 years ahead, pop 9 billion” hows the world going.( bias to aus)
    now the guests were educated, fairly broad selection…
    oh sh*t! is all I can say.
    they all calmly accept the 9 billion premise. one only dared mention the need to stop before then, and I think the same person also stated that health extending treatment for elderly illness uses the most in any system…
    all bar 2 still believe in science getting us out of the sewer we are making of our planet..
    One mentioned that war or epidemic is the ONLY way any human population has dropped growth
    Disease by malnutrition and lack of water etc is covered under epidemic. what came first, is moot point.
    I live in a dumbed down nation too!!!!!!!! aargh!!

  3. Oz- you bring up a very important point. The “carrying capacity” of the Earth is already exceeded and it is doubtful if the human population will ever be bigger than today.

    Similarly I just read an article in the Economist- but could have been anywhere else- that talks about economic recovery, as if the USA had any economy to recover….We don’t make or do anything useful anymore, our industrial plants and jobs have been shipped to where labor costs less than what it takes to keep people alive. Evidently parasitism makes people instantly stupid- or just determined to ignore the obvious!

  4. i just got goose bumps.
    that radio show a couple of people mentioned “oracle” as a coms system…I thought it a tacky joke…I just found out Oracle is for bloody real……….aaargh!

  5. seriously, even if the gov str8 out told people, ‘look, we’re gonna do X,” and X was some horrific thing, folks would be okay with it as long as they have their sports and their cars.
