How sheep got into the title is because they illustrate the Follow Syndrome. The Follow Syndrome goes hand in hand with Cognitive Dissidence. Cognitive dissidence often operates under the cloak of Conventional Wisdom. Unfortunately not only do the masses swoon over what is known as conventional wisdom, but also funding sources for many scientific projects and conservation efforts. Baaaaaa-aha.
Between the sheep and cognitive dissidence, cult culture thrives and dog kibble triumphs.
