We're Really Sheeple, No Kidding

A new science discovery reported from Leeds University says that humans and sheep have herd mentality. We sure proved that here in America in 2002 and 2003 when we were talked into invading Iraq for bin Laden's attack on 9/11, flags flying from every house and car.

ScienceDaily reports: "Results from a study at the University of Leeds show that it takes a minority of just five per cent to influence a crowd’s direction – and that the other 95 per cent follow without realising it." They go on to report: “We’ve all been in situations where we get swept along by the crowd,” says Professor Krause. “But what’s interesting about this research is that our participants ended up making a consensus decision despite the fact that they weren’t allowed to talk or gesture to one another. In most cases the participants didn’t realise they were being led by others.”

Sheeple, easily led, no questions asked.
