ROOT: Be true to yourself

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — If you base your ideas on subtle innuendo and partial facts and then berate everyone who disagrees with you by calling them sheeple, then you are part of the problem. If people just stopped to read the facts before they comment, then the term “sheeple” might not even exist.

But as long as millions of people are content to stop reading after the headline, there will always be disgruntled individualists who feel that everyone else is just drinking the kool-aid.

Sometimes being sheeple is the best way to go.

George N. Root III is a Lockport resident and part-time sheeple member. His column is published every Wednesday and, admit it, you read it every week, you sheeple. Contact him at georgeroot@verizon.net -- but one at a time, please.
