I've come to the realization that they pride themselves on stupidity and arrogance. They can't see the malignant character of their oppressors because they have the same malignant traits and thus no dichotomy. You only meet the "man behind the curtain" after meeting the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion - or brains, heart, and balls - and they have a severe deficit in at least one. Usually, it's all three.

Most sheeple would throw us aware ones under the bus in a heartbeat to curry favor with power. The famous cowboy lawyer, Gerry Spence, said that the 5 largest insurance companies have assets in the trillions and the political leverage that always accompanies such wealth. He fought insurance companies for much of his career. The Kefauver hearings were held in the U.S. Senate, 1950 & 51, to determine to what extent organized crime crossed state lines. Kefauver was grilling a mob boss who was subpoenaed to testify, asking him, "So this is a racket? You were involved in that racket? Would you consider this enterprise you were engaged in a racket?" etc. etc. Finally in exasperation the mob guy practically yelled, "For Chrissakes, senator! Everything is a racket!" He was too discreet to point out that the senator and all the rest of Congress are among the biggest racketeers of all. Dr. Richard Day, a high level medical officer of the Rockefeller Institute at a lecture in 1969 said they could cure any cancer but they keep the procedures under wraps for the oligarchs. The herd must be culled. The money printers, the real rulers of this earth, can create money for anything without taxation, which is just to control and impoverish the people. Case in point: During the Great Depression, when allegedly no money was available (for the common man), two mega million dollar bridges were constructed in California. The people involved in the project had no problem getting access to the funds. "They", like wizards, make lucre out of thin air and it's all nice and legal. For them, that is. Voting is a joke. If an owner of a large department store changed his manager and some lower and middle level employees, exactly how that would change the day to day operations of the store with regard to the public is how much the operation of America is changed by elections that change a president and some clowns in Congress. Simply put, not at all. Disease is designer fashion. People die of Diabetes at a rate of 7 to 1 over those who die of breast cancer yet breast cancer research gets literally 10 times the funding of diabetic research. Another racket. The fads & trends the sheeple follow are created and signaled to them by the Cryptocracy's media organs. On hearing truth, the sheeple switch off and reject automatically, like a computer program. Most are truly unreachable. The Founding Fathers ordained this Constitution for themselves and their posterity, which ain't us. The Pavlovian reaction of the sheeple to anti-capitalism, no matter how well grounded, is to bleat, "Communist!" They are too dense to even begin to see that capitalism and communism are not adversaries but lovers. "I drink to make other people more interesting." At least in this Kali Yuga, the masses are asses and always will be. That aside, I'm moved by your faith, Don, against all odds. Thanks for this provocative piece.

I vividly recall when it first sunk in for me, how stupid the average American was, in 1980. The National Park Service announced that the feral donkeys in Grand Canyon were destroying the canyon environment, and they were to be shot. There was a huge hullabaloo because the brilliant public thought the park service was going to kill the park mules that carry tourists to the river. I remember being disgusted by this stupidness, but soon I was noticing this kind of inability to comprehend reality was a national trait. Add to that, no working memory past last week for most folks, and you have what we have today. Even when truth is finally revealed by the msm, the event is long forgotten...or most likely, the person who you argued with is now denying they were on the wrong side of history. A huge number of people are now saying they saw through 9-11 at the time...and I'm not buying it. I sure didn't know anyone besides myself who disbelieved the msm propaganda...and I'm talking YEARS afterwards. Some say they: "woke up but went back to sleep". Imho, either you wake up, or you don't.

I spent exactly 30 years trying to "wake people up"...but I'm in retirement now. When I saw how almost everyone fell for the scamdemic psy-op...it slapped me in the face...how I had been engaging in a huge waste of my time, the past 30 years. Out of hundreds of people I had talked to, only two didn't take the Jonestown jab, and thanked me for saving their lives. In my experience, most people have a difficult time parsing out the reality that surrounds them, even when they're getting 100 percent of the truth. Throw in a worldwide conspiracy that has been brainwashing them for decades, and they are hopeless. I often wonder how the average stupid American can make it through their daily tasks without going off the rails. They seem too stupid to get anything done correctly.

I must disagree with you Donald, about the driving thing. Those who pause ten seconds when the light turns green are the smart ones. I can't tell you how many times lately I've seen someone fail to stop on a red. Every time I'm crossing a street on foot, I proceed as if the driver will not stop for the red...and almost always I'm right...and my pause has just saved myself from injury or death. I've always felt insurance was extortion, and I've driven most of the last 40 years without it...because I just didn't have the money to pay for it . I've never had an uninsured accident. I drove three years on a suspended license (for no insurance) and never got caught. How did I manage this? By driving super cautiously, and under the speed limit. There is a kid in a nearby town who is alive today because of my cautious driving. The speed limit was 15 mph, I was going less than 10 mph when he shot out on a skateboard from between two parked cars. Even after slamming on the brakes, I would have hit him at the speed limit. People drive like they are going to a fire, for what benefit? They risk their lives running stop lights...or going through yellows...to get home a minute sooner? This is a terrible risk/benefit choice. You risk permanent injury, death, the ruin of your car, increased insurance...for what? ...getting to your destination five minutes earlier? It doesn't even work. I usually catch up with these impatient drivers, who I witness doing dangerous things, several lights down the road. I WANT to be in the slow lane, and I pull over for tailgaters, if it is safe to do so. I don't want anything to do with people who refuse to use critical thinking while driving. I trust no one...and I especially don't trust other drivers to obey traffic laws...in particular, stopping at red lights. If you DO trust they will stop... sooner or later you will be hit by a red light runner. I have had insurance for the past three years, though...but my extreme caution behind the wheel is a habit I will always have.

I just remembered...there was one accident I was in. Two pot smoking idiots turned left in front of me. Even going 15 miles under the speed limit, I hit their van broadside. The strangest thing happened...my car bounced off the van, spun 360 degrees in the middle of the road...and came to rest on a side street. The only damage to both vehicles, was my smashed rearview mirror (not sure how that happened). These stoned imbiciles tried to say it was my fault that I hit them when they turned left into their driveway right across oncoming traffic. We were both happy to just let it go. Me, because of no insurance, and they because they were stoned. No cops came ...thank goodness.

A very honest and affecting essay. Yes, this people vs. sheeple is a painful dilemma ... and reality... for populists. But there is nothing like the simple, straightforward gesture of sincere respect towards another person to inspire them to be the best they can be. And that is the best we can do.

Donald-you and me are carrying around like George Carlin used to say, a little free-floating hostility. You can't help it living in this Insane Asylum world we now live in. It is tough not to be hard on the sheeple that we come in contact with, but remember we are lied to from the cradle to the grave. When you get out of high school in this country you are totally clueless on who controls things and how the world really works. You just become a schlepper, as the Jews say. Sending your child off to the Public Fool (School) System should be considered child abuse. Who was it that said (In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act. And the people driving around on the freeway these days on your bumper that's not a fun experience. Most people nowadays are so far in debt they are running around like rats in a wheel trying to pay for the things that they think they own. (Ramblings from a Boomer)

We’ll all be judged by how we practiced the golden rule. We have to look for angels in everyone, even when they act like devils. We have to hold out hope they will change or wake up. The sun shines on the good and the bad. I love those old movies too.

You have the acute insights of a superb stand up comedian. The analogy of the slow driver in front with the fast driver behind is priceless!

Sheeple vs People ...Sheeple 90+% People 10% or less from what I have observed.. Bread and Circuses. Sheeple only care about who won the game, what star is doing what or with whom. What are the Kardashians wearing. BTW I used to call sheeple lemmings.

The majority of people's main goal in life is self preservation. What separates them is at what point will they sell their souls for security. What we have in this country is a major stupidity problem. Read the polls and the majority is unhappy with our leaders. Read comments and most don't care much for the rich yet most Congressmen are very rich compared to the working poor. That said on every election there is a 90+% return rate to Congress. That folks is sheer stupidity. I suppose I have always been an Anarchist but even if I weren't with the majority, when it comes to politics, can't seem to understand that you can't get change by doing the same thing over and over. We the people select rapists, pedophiles, drug addicts, vegetables and a couple totally insane to be our leaders. I didn't mention corrupt because finding someone that isn't is to big a task for my little brain.

Mr. Jeffries, I agree with you about Dicken's Christmas Carol. The very best story!

Sheeple is a fine word, but I find that most sheeple find everyone else to be sheeple. As someone who spends much time reading the thoughts of others, I can testify that conservatives enjoy reporting liberals as sheeple. And liberals laugh heartily at what sheeple the deplorables are.

Thank you for another fine article!

I suspect the Sheeple don't cause most of the trouble; they don't do much at all except accede and pay taxes. The opponents of the town clerk the Realtors appointed mayor in my town get 85% support in preelection polls, but she wins by 51-54%. An earlier candidate mysteriously "committed suicide" just before the election. No noise or protest about any of this.

While Utah has the reputation of the rudest drivers in the nation, only a few stoned texters miss lights. OTOH, thieving and vandalizing meth heads (the developers' wrecking ball) run rampant. Ritalin seems to have set the stage for this. They pushed it when we registered my son for Kindergarten.

Don't answer cold calls. At most, call them back. (Most are "not in service".) When I did this spam calls dropped from 8 per day to 4.

I look forward to your Jeff Rense visit tonight.

If "We The People" weren't censored and shadow-banned at every turn in every medium, you'd find-out that WE ARE the largest block of citizens in America.

Also, but harder to achieve, an honest media for just a few months would make "US" the clear majority.

Hence, knowing those two things, I still have some hope.

Victory is achievable.

My father who was a devout Christian left school around grade eight to work on his father's farm taught me one very important lesson and that is to speak the truth always and to seek the truth which meant be open to diverse and informed viewpoints. And this high regard for truth came from the Bible: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32. And it seemed growing up 1950s and 1960s, most people spoke their mind and to do otherwise was considered cowardly and in fact evil.. But something changed through the 1970s and just got a lot worth until today, people do not just lie from time to time but commonly espouse a narrative that is totally untrue on almost every major subject. For example, as a research scientist in the field of earth science for over 35 years, I found myself attacked by colleagues and administrators for challenging the so-called Anthropogenic Global Warming (ADW) "theory" and exposing the UN's IPCC which was never about science but the corruption of science. So when the "pandemic" was declared and "safe and effective" COVID shots were rolled out, I spent about 500 hours researching all aspects of the COVID "pandemic" and as a result refused to take these lethal injections and advised others not to take them. The ostracization by family, friends, neighbors and colleagues for challenging the COVID narrative has shaken my faith in humanity. At least I now understand how the Bolsheviks exterminated some 60 million Russians according to Solzhenitsyn and there was no shortage it would seem of Stalin's willing executioners. So now we find ourselves living a world of lies as far as the eye can see. Some examples include Biden was elected president in a fair election; Congress represents the people; the DoJ is concerned with true justice and natural law; all wars by the West are waged to protect democracy; carbon dioxide the gas of life is a pollutant that drives global warming and a climatic crisis; John Kennedy was assassinated by a single bullet fired by Lee Harvey Oswald; the Twin Towers were brought down by ramming planes highjacked by Islamic terrorists armed to the teeth with box cutters into the towers; the war in the Ukraine was caused by Russia and not by the crazed NeoCons who orchestrated and funded the 2014 coup; a free and democratic Ukraine led by a modern version of Winston Churchill is winning the war; the genocide of over 15,000 civilians, half of whom are children, in the Gaza war constitutes Israeli self defense; the privately owned Fed that has created trillions of dollars out of thin air causing major debt and inflation is working in the best interests of the American people; the FBI is not the Gestapo but a well run domestic police service; the CIA and FBI do not spy on Americans or anyone else; Big Pharma and the Medical Industrial Complex is about saving lives; the COVID shots are safe and effective despite the 17 million deaths worldwide; the main stream media is a fountain of truth and knowledge that sustains democracy; schools and universities are not engaged in indoctrination but teaching basic math and science....and the list goes on and on and on. Russia refers to America as the Empire of Lies and this Empire of Lies extends throughout the western world including where I live, Ottawa in Canada.

The insurance and medical industry in this country are both an amazing mess. I've worked closely in both for 30 years now. At least the insurance industry is fairly uniform in extracting exorbitant fees, whereas in the medical industry payment for the exact same services can vary from a couple hundred dollars (medicare) to thousands of dollars (payment from a liability insurance claim)
