Philosophical Sheep

If I were a philosophical sheep I suspect that I would view it this way;...............

After due consideration I would have to say that I would view the Shepard as unspeakably evil. My reasoning is thus;

A wolf will be in a state of symbiotic balance with sheep in a natural setting. He will attack and kill the weak, the old and the young, but he will take only those that are least likely to survive. He will not take more than he needs because if he does there will be no more after a bit and he will starve. Most importantly though, the wolf, though a predator, will leave sheep to work out their own destiny. So while the wolf will prey on members of the heard he will not try to turn the herd into something other than what it is.

The Shepard on the other hand enslaves the sheep. He turns them from their natural destiny and forces them into a pattern that serves him rather than them. While the wolf is a symbiote, the Shepard is a parasite.

On the other hand, if I were an unphilosophical sheep, I would in all likelihood tell that bigmouthed Merino to shut up before he insults and angers the SHEPARD
(hosannah). If that happens the SHEPARD (hosannah) might not bring all that wonderful feed, and might not chase the wolves and the Coyotes away, and may not bring the LIVESTOCK TRUCK that will take all good sheep to the HAPPY PLACE where they will feed on all manner of good grasses and sweet water forever. (amen) Fnord

If the philosophical sheep kept on with all that subversive talk I might just push him off a cliff, or drop a rock on him, or send a note to the wolves telling them where he could be found.

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else."
Theodore Roosevelt
