Mindless Sheep


Above all, we must learn to stop dismissing our fellow citizens as mindless sheep. They can be frustrating, even silly sometimes. But they deserve better than contempt from the members of an elite—including whatever elite you, the reader, consider yourself to be a member of. Sometimes the people may even surprise you, as they continue to become more practiced in the arts of citizenship.
