How Can A Flock Of Sheeple Pick A Leader?

Recommended Posts

The Cambridge Dictionary defines "to be like sheep" as follows: "If a group of people are (like) sheep, they all behave in the same way or all behave as they are told, and cannot or will not act independently." If that definition reflects accurately on sheep (the animals) themselves, well, then sheep aren't all that able to differentiate a good idea from a terrible one -- they just follow the crowd. And, as it turns out, the idiom is accurate. Take, for example, this 22 second video, where the sheep got confused as to which one is leading. The result: they kept following each other in a circle around a car, making it very difficult for the driver to get anywhere.

Parallels with the housing market?

An EXCELLENT book on the subject is:

''Extraordinary popular delusions and the madness of crowds by charles mackay''

If you Google the title & then add pdf you can download it for free as an eBook. :D
