I often use the word “sheeple” in my rantings so it amused me to find Wikipedia actually had an entry on the word. Funny and useful.


Sheeple is a term of disparagement, a portmanteau created by combining the words “sheep” and “people”, a reference to herd mentality. It is often used to denote persons who acquiesce to authority, and thus undermine their own human individuality. The implication of sheeple is that people believe whatever they are told, without processing it to be sure that it is an accurate representation of the real world around them. The term is generally used in a political or religious sense.
