The big secret is... People are basically good the world over

Most people are good. And it's this reason society works and doesn't collapse on itself. It isn't laws that cause people to be good. But this goodness makes people in general unable to see or understand how someone else would choose to be evil. This is why most people trust the government. They believe that no one would do such evil things especially to their own people. However, people with evil intentions who want to control others gravitate toward power. They either seek ultimate power within the government or work toward positions of power as minions.

The fact that people are basically good although a ray of hope for the world makes them susceptible to be sheeple. As I see it, there is a third type of people. The likes of Ron Paul and thousands of others are good people who see the wolves for who they are. I see them as Border Collies trying to keep the wolves at bay. In my analogy, though, sheeple can become border collies just by waking up.
