Have you ever tried corralling sheep? Not an easy task unless you know what you are doing. Since sheep are herd animals, they like to stick together. Get the leader to go in one direction, then the others will soon follow. They also tend to be very habitual. Both of these tendencies can be used against them to get them to do what you want them to.
Let’s just say that I own a large herd of sheep, and want to shear them. To do this, I need them to be in a small pen so that their movements are limited, making them easy to catch. Here are some very effective methods:
There are a lot of sheep, and only myself and a dog to get the job done. The sheep must be led to believe that the entrance to the pen where I want them to go is their only means of escape from me and the dog. Therefore, I open the gate to the pen, and slowly but surely, the dog and I move towards the sheep, while they retreat from us towards the gate. We need to make sure that they do not panic and scatter, so we are very methodical and diligent in keeping them together. Once the leader enters the gate, we move in closer, and the rest of the flock follows the leader into the pen. Close the gate, and the job is done.
This time I have a human helper, and not a dog. I also have portable corralling. My helper and I take the portable corralling and erect it in the sheep’s area, cutting their area in half. When they are used to that, we move in and cut that area in half, and on and on until we have them in a small pen.
I am alone this time, so I begin feeding the sheep in a small pen several days before shearing date. This gets them used to going to the same place, day after day, and thinking nothing about it. By the time the shearer arrives, all I have to do is feed the sheep in the small pen then close the gate behind them whenever I want to.
So, for a little bit of effort, even one person can corral a large herd of sheep quite easily. So why is it so difficult to believe that for a little bit of effort, a small group of oligarchs can corral a large group of people quite easily?
Humans are a bit like sheep. We tend to group together and follow the person/s whom we think know best. That tendency can be beneficial in the case of extreme circumstances such as a disaster calling for immediate action. However, it can also spell our demise. The question is, how can this tendency be used against us without us knowing it? The answer lies in deception.
Let’s just say that a few very rich people want to shear their human sheep by taking all the money, and everything that they think they own.
There are a lot of people, and only few oligarchs to get the job done. The people must be led to believe that where the oligarchs want them to go is their only means of escape from impending danger. Therefore, the oligarchs open the door to the trap, and slowly but surely, move towards the people with cries such as “look, there’s a terrorist!,” while the people retreat towards the door. They need to make sure that the people do not panic and scatter, so they are very methodical and diligent in keeping the people together through propaganda and a controlled media. Once the leader enters the door, the oligarchs move in closer, and the rest of the people follow the leader into the trap. Close the door, and the job is done.
This time a cage is used in the form of legislation, rules, and regulations. The oligarchs pass rule after rule supposedly for the people’s welfare, and create a web of regulations that eventually control the people’s every word and action. It is done one rule at a time. When the people get used to a rule, another, more oppressive rule is implemented, and on and on until they have the people corralled in a small pen, with only a few movements sanctioned by the oligarchs.
The oligarchs feed the people in a small pen several days, months or years before shearing date. This gets them used to going to the same place, day after day, and thinking nothing about it. By the time the shearer arrives, all they have to do is feed the people in the small pen then close the gate behind them whenever they want to. Think of the feeding pen as the slave-labor workplace where you go every day to stay in the grind of paying taxes, supporting the Federal Reserve and feeding your family on an ever-decreasing paycheck.
So you see, it is not all that difficult to understand how we are in the position we are in, and how we got here through lies, deception, and a well thought-out plan by a few very, very, rich people who have nothing better to do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, than to figure out how to corral their sheep and fleece them for all that they have.
So, what to do? I can only say this:
Do not go gentle into that holding pen, waiting to be sheared without a whimper. The hardest sheep to corral is one that will not follow the herd blindly. Question everything, and do the research. Reach for the truth and reject the lies. When one sheep scatters from the herd, others see it and start to scatter also. What the oligarchs do not want to see is a well-armed sheep, contesting the status quo. Be that well-armed sheep.
