The Sheepification of Western Civilization

A recent article from the UK’s Telegraph, outlines the State directed response to citizens in the event of a “firearms” attack:

Police have issued a safety video advising the public how to respond in the event of a firearms of weapons attack.
The UK’s current national threat level is “severe”, meaning an attack is highly likely. The video has been made to inform the public of how they can protect themselves against attacks – terrorist related or otherwise – if the need arises.
Stay Safe: Firearms and Weapons Attack sets out three key points of advice: that if you are caught up in an incident to you must “run”, “hide” and tell”.

Courtesy of the State, with its reactive police apparatus, with it’s variable response times [almost always too late, for someone], and in the case of the U.S. at least, no duty to protect the citizen*……..if you’re in danger…….cower in fear. Don’t fight back, don’t stand up for your fellow citizen, don’t do what’s right…..curl into a fetal position and weep softly to yourself, praying that government will come to your aid, before it’s too late.

Sadly, it’s not just government propaganda that is turning once proud and defiant people into a manageable flock of sheep…..we’re doing it to ourselves. We have become a society where, when our fellow citizen is in harm’s way….we’d rather stand around recording the events on our phones, to instantly upload to whatever social media platform defines our existences.

*“The duty to provide public services is owed to the public at large, and, absent a special relationship between the police and an individual, no specific legal duty exists.” – Warren v. District of Columbia

Grossman’s Sheepdog treatise comes to mind with articles such as this, and if you haven’t read his work, I encourage you to do so…for there are indeed sheep, wolves and sheepdogs. Which are you?
