Sheeps, wolves, and sheep dogs

This was a sort of interesting (and a little blowhard-y) essay on the role of sheeps, wolves and sheep dogs:

Everyone has been given a gift in life. Some people have a gift for science and some have a flair for art. And warriors have been given the gift of aggression. They would no more misuse this gift than a doctor would misuse his healing arts, but they yearn for the opportunity to use their gift to help others. These people, the ones who have been blessed with the gift of aggression and a love for others, are our sheepdogs. These are our warriors.


We may well be in the most violent times in history, but violence is still remarkably rare. This is because most citizens are kind, decent people who are not capable of hurting each other, except by accident or under extreme provocation. They are sheep.

I mean nothing negative by calling them sheep. To me it is like the pretty, blue robin’s egg. Inside it is soft and gooey but someday it will grow into something wonderful. But the egg cannot survive without its hard blue shell. Police officers, soldiers and other warriors are like that shell, and someday the civilization they protect will grow into something wonderful. For now, though, they need warriors to protect them from the predators.

“Then there are the wolves,” the old war veteran said, “and the wolves feed on the sheep without mercy.” Do you believe there are wolves out there who will feed on the flock without mercy? You better believe it. There are evil men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget that or pretend it is not so, you become a sheep. There is no safety in denial.

“Then there are sheepdogs,” he went on, “and I’m a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the wolf.” Or, as a sign in one California law enforcement agency put it, “We intimidate those who intimidate others.”

If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen: a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath--a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? Then you are a sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed.


Sheep dogs? Maybe. (Cue the young sociopath want-to-bes asserting that they are wolves raised to be sheepdogs?) I am actually fine with the idea of there being sheepdogs. Generally speaking, it's the sheep dogs that keeps everyone else in ignorance. I have nothing concrete to really base this on, but it seems like sheep are not like deer or other natural prey that are naturally skittish? They get lulled into this false sense of security? Which is actually a pretty great way to run a society, for a lot of reasons.

    1. The problem with this story is that it's incomplete. It's missing the shepherd. The sheepdog thinks he is special, but in reality, he's no more than a domesticated wolf. By whom? The freaking shepherd. There are no sheepdogs in the wild guarding flocks of sheep. It took a shepherd to train him. The sheep are no more safe being guarded by the sheepdog, then they are out in the wild taking their chances with wolves. Because in reality, the sheep flock will be milked, or eventually killed for meet, by the shepherd. In the wild, only some would get eaten by wolves. The sheepdog gets the pleasure of being taken into the shepherd's house, fed some meat, sheep meat even, but he's no more free or glorious than a wolf, because all he's doing is protecting the shepherd's interest. Thinking he is protecting the sheep, while in reality he is ensuring their imprisonment, and eventual doom. It's just slower, but definitely guaranteed. In this story, who is the real only true and free actor? The wolf. They all die. Sometimes the wolf loses to the sheepdog. Sometimes the sheepdog. Sometimes the sheep get eaten by the wolf, or eventually eaten by the shepherd. And sometimes the wolf or the sheepdog turn against the shepherd as well. But the only one living free through their lives, is the wolf. The problem with sheepdog, is that they don't ever see the shepherd that feeds them bones, sheep meat, cheese and milk and tells them beautiful stories about protecting the sheep, all the while committing a more hideous crime the wolf would commit anyway. The wolf would kill some of sheep if sheeps were free, but others would survive, because they are not all female sheeps. The flock has and always had fucking rams with big freaking horns that protects them. The shepherd will only kill them after he's milked them beyond use and fatten them up for the kill.

      So if you want to be an animal in this story, don't be a sheep, don't be a wolf, don't be a trained dog, be what you are naturally supposed to be as a male. A ram. And ram the shepherd and his dog the first chance you get, because if they hands on you or your family, you can bet your ass you or your herd will never be free.

  2. To say that the average person is kindhearted and without a capacity for violence is extremely ignorant to their true nature. They may be sheep, yes, but they only retain their guise of kindness until something seems unfair or something goes wrong in their little world. They only retain the kindness because they just want to live in harmony, and without conflict, they're looking out for themselves. Of course, this is all unbeknownst to them, they believe themselves to be kindhearted people and when they aren't they just say that "they weren't themselves." And that's how their egos justify their unkind thoughts and actions.

    At the core they are no kinder than any sociopath, they just believe they are kind and act accordingly (until triggered otherwise), their egos just won't let them see reality or it would disrupt their harmonious facade and put them at risk.

    Sociopaths see reality, realizing the harmonious facade is just that. Since they see the truth, and are not tricked by their ego, they must consciously project the facade if they wish to live in harmony (for whatever purpose). Sociopaths are also able to see when other people are projecting a facade and do not truly believe (deludedly, as it would be) themselves kind.

    2. Where's the sanity in revealing your a wolf? You cannot feed. You cannot breed. You cannot live. The man on the news, the serial killer, the pedophile, they followed your logic. We enjoy our hypocripsy to a point friend. Deluding others and playing games, ceryainly enjoyable. Like a cat batting yarn. It is a cognotive excercise. Out hypocripsy is our power; it is our hunting strategy. Come now, I'm almost certainly younger and even I manuevered out of that logical pitfall. You let your emotions best you there friend.

  5. Hi SW! It's been awhile. I trust everyone is alive and kicking.

    I like this post. I don't possess a lick of affective empathy, but I am equipped with a strong drive to protect and lead. Is there such a thing as a wolf dressed in sheepdog clothing? Or could it be that there are stronger motivations undergirding human behaviour than mere empathy, which is over-rated, to say the least?

  8. Canis Lupus...

    They are all the same. A dog, wolf, whatever, they are all violent meat eaters. The only difference is the sheep dog has been "bred" for sumbission to the betterment of the sheep. He is feed by his master's hand the same meat he would crave in the wild. Let the order of his master's flock dissolve, let the sheep dog's master no longer give him hand-outs... the sheep-dog will turn back into the basic "canis lupus", which is what the wolf is. It's all about survival.

  11. M.E. walked into Alia's office with his classic insouciance.

    "We have to find another way around this, Alia. I lost my brother. If there was foul play, I will find the culprit and destroy him, but for now, we need to change our methods. I want to offer research money to a person who will volunteer for usage of Love Potion Number 9. That way, it will be above board. We can document the progress in a scientific way. Monica will fuck up a wet dream, so she is out. How about a man this time? Rich? Maybe it will cure his social anxiety."

    They both laughed at that one. They would talk to Rich in a few minutes, but Alia had other things on her mind.

    "ME, do you remember our times in college? Did anyone ever fuck you like I did? Did anyone ever suck the life out of you like I did?"

    ME looked at her with a strange expression, as he unzipped his fly very,very slowly.

    Alia looked at him and he saw her, as if in a time warp. She had the expression of a child, a teen and a woman.

    She had the expression of desire, pain, love and rage.

    Then, it all left and she moved her tongue onto his cock, as if she found Jesus, or some shit.

      Mercy, you're giving me the vapors!

      You know Sofa, this is not bad at all.
      Good of you to take out all the "Russian humor" and "ha ha" crap. That was old. I mean, she's Russian, she's got Russian humor. We got it.

      Monica fucking up a wet dream - lovely.

      The second part is great, but a girl asking "Did anyone ever suck the life out of you like I did?" is not very conducive to seduction.
      "Suck the life out of" might have sounded sexy in your head, but it means to bring someone down, take all the joy out of life for them. I can just see him thinking "Well now that you mention it, you were pretty clingy and annoying. And I couldn't even smack you around"

      Also, the last sentence: "as if she found Jesus" See, now you were going somewhere good before you had to bring up Jesus. I don't need that mental image when I think of M.E.'s cock getting sucked by Alia.

      And the "or some shit" part. You got lazy there and it killed my buzz. Who the hell says that during a sex scene? You could have provided a better description of the blow job. Put some nice porn in there. You can never have too much porn.

      Overall however, very good.

    4. Re write of the blow job

      Alia fell to her knees, forgetting that she hated to be obsequious. As if in some otherworldly trance, Alia moved her hands, which were trembling, to touch his cock. She remembered every fucking inch of it, every beautiful millimeter. He was hers now, in this moment and this moment was all we have. Zen speaking.

      When she and ME were lovers, she had even named his cock.She called it Lupit, which was a Russian word for the head of the penis. She doubted she would see it again and here it was in all it's masculine ascendency.

      She directed her tongue in the gentlest of movements. She moved from the base to the top, not touching the head. M.E liked it slow and sensuous, and so did she.

      After each length wise tongue movement, she planted little kisses on the same roadway, as if traffic was winding down a country road on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

      Then, she planted big wet kisses, as M.E moaned and she felt her heart flutter.

      Then, she moved her mouth sideways up the length of the long shaft with greedy wet kisses. She moved her mouth over the tip as if she was tasting most delicious dessert like her chocolate mousse or a Russian treat from her youth.

      She wanted to tell him that she loved him but instead she heard him scream a stifled scream.She thought she heard her name, but could not be sure.

      At that moment, they heard a knock on the door and someone called her name. "Alia!!!!!!!" It was Rich.

      She fell into the rhythm of the dance, as she put more and pressure on her tongue.

      I like the last line, but then at least Rich didn't make his appearance as M.E. was just about to bestow a pearl necklace upon her. That would have been even more awkward.

  14. While M.E. and Alia were otherwise occupied. Monica was looking to hire a handsome, young Norwegian man, Edvard.

    Medusa was useless for any real work. The woman had given up on prodding her. Medusa knew too many of their secrets to get rid of her( and she was vicious when she was vengeful) so they sought to hire her an assistant who would do her work and his own, too.

    The Vikings and the gods had smiled down on Edvard.

    He looked like a Greek god( or Viking god, to be precise)

    Monica pronounced him hired and they shook hands.

  16. Like the album by Pink Floyd "Animals"
    The Pigs, Dogs and Sheep
    The Pigs control the resources and establish soceital rules, the Dogs aspire to be pigs and enforce those rules at the expense of Sheep, and the Sheep pay all the taxes and fight all the wars etc.

    The Sheep (the people, the proletariat=the suckers and the saps) also act as "wolves" themselves enforcing conformity among fellow sheep and ratting to the Dogs if need be.
    Ultimately the sheep act by and large on the conditioning given by the various institutions controlled by the Pigs, which ultimately serves their purpose for thier parasitism.

    Those who truly rise above this to be heroes are eventually crucufied in a dictatorship or ponerized in a "democracy"

    I almost stopped reading right there. I find that hard to believe. I think everyone, deep down, is like me. A selfish animal. If someone gets between me and something I want (like money or a higher position) I will do anything to get rid of them if I can conceive I won't be caught. I wish I was white and this was the time before DNA/Fingerprint evidence. I would go could just murder everyone between me and what I want.

    There's one person who shares my job title. I would prefer there to be none who share it. I'm plotting how to ruin her. My first instinct was to break her legs/break up her marriage. I think that's a bit much though. It's a working project.

    I disagree. Everyone is capable of violence. This is the nature of animals.

    What keeps people from acting on violence a selfish "moral" imperative whereby the individual reaps greater rewards when society functions as a cohesive whole. Having a generally non-violent society means more cooperation and more prosperity for the group.

    Violence and chaos degrades that infrastructure and the probability of living a comfortable life at the status quo is reduced.

  22. Changes happen and Establishment was not immune. Alia left her job, Elicit and the country. ME was promoted to her position on the 5th floor in the lab, which no one had seen except himself and the now resigned Alia.

    A new woman came on as the Resident Sex Therapist. Her name was Dr Raven. They hired another male therapist to balance out the excess estrogen. The new male was Dr Literary Anon. Monica, especially, had her eye on him. It did not take Elicit long to have her eye on Dr Raven.

    All being said, they had a nice set of characters in Establishment B: human characters and as such, lots and lots of drama.

Writing can be hard enough without requesting that the writer only produce materiel about the things they haven't even experienced in real life. You're setting her up for writer's block. :-p

      You want your daily hard on? Let her write from some sexual experience. The lesbian shit can be her experimental. Living vicariously and such.

    5. Lesbian sex between Monica and Zoe? Egads man. As someone that actually enjoys sleeping with women: Ew.


      Just Ew.

    6. Lol!

      I knew that combination would have potential for fun. I like to see things stirred up a bit and I'm already laughing at the reactions.

      Besides, I thought Monica did have sexual experience with women. I for one was not exactly aroused by her description of the Monica/M.E.'s twin shenanigans. Perhaps a lesbian coupling would fare better.

      But, if cock it must be, then I nominate Rich.

    7. ::cringe:: it's so easy to spot the people with absolutely no idea about lesbian couples, or even female needs.


      You do realize by nominating Rich as monicas partner you're just going to get a diatribe of snuggling, cuddles, and waiting for marriage... or until monica works out her issues. So never.

      Delete
    8. No. Monica does not have any lesbian experience. And I can see what you are doing, and you know that she will bend to what ever pleases you, and any other wet dick in this room. I think she needs learn to please herself through her story. One of the reasons she only puts out small installations as it is, is because her imagination can't cover what she doesn't know from real life.

      I want to get to know HER desires through this story. Let her gradually open them up one by one until she explodes on the screen. By letting her know it's okay to explore what comes most natural to her, instead of telling her to make sure she is pleasing the males in the room... you'll probably get some pretty great results. Better than what you'll get if she has to communicate with desires she doesn't have.

      I want to watch her catch flame.

    9. Oh Raven. Ew.

      Why do we have to focus on Monica and sex at all?

      Delete
    10. :) I do love to stir.

      That's a good point, Raven. It would be good to see her desires. Her real desires.

      I still have my doubts it will eventuate. I think her narcissism will ultimately prevent her from saying anything she would consider truly shameful.

      I like the small installations. I lack the attention span for reading large walls of text, so it keeps it interesting for me. She has shown potential and I don't believe her imagination is very lacking. The more she writes, the better she gets.

      I do admit that I enjoy the pornographic scenes more than the others. There is some passion there, rather than her simply stating who did what and where and what fantastical weapons may have been used.

      She seemed to enjoy writing about the lesbian couples more than the heterosexual ones, put far more feeling into it, which made it more interesting to me. So it's not just the lesbian sex aspect.

      I encourage her to write action scenes because I want to see if her dark side will come to the fore. There is a lot of darkness in her, but also a lot of fear. I am hoping she will express herself by writing about all the violence she feels like committing. That and it will keep the story from being all about romantic relationships, so the boys be better entertained.

    1. I like affection because it helps illustrate my power, if I can get a girl to affectionately do exactly what I tell her after building and breaking her for a month I own her for at least another 6. Kinda wish I wasn't leaving in a month because i've had so many girls I could have ruined if I had more time. Actually I talked to an ex two days ago and she confirmed what I expected: girls that date me are broken for a long time after. 8 months so far in her case. I still control her in large part though.

  28. It is Tues Morning at 9 AM at Establishment B. ME walks in. Medusa runs to get him coffee. Two creams and two sugars.

    Monica smiles a toothy smile. Zoe smiles an even toothier one.

    Edvard fetches Monica and Zoe's coffee. Black and black with 2 sugars, respectively. Edvard goes next door to the donut shop and gets a dozen assorted.

    Dr Raven is new. She assesses the situation with a cool eye.

    Dr Literary Anon grabs a donut and a bottle of water he brought from home. He does not drink coffee.

    At 9:15 sharp, the door opens and a striking blond man with perfect posture walks in. He asks Medusa for the office of Dr Monica Moo. His name is Virus and he is applying for the security job. Rich heads the security department and runs it with a loose hand. Rich's job has consisted of checking the premises, playing video games, hitting up hot chicks on the internet and writing manic posts on his fave blog, Sociopathworld.


    Monica hires Virus on the spot and they shake hands.

    Hence, we have our staff at Establishment B:
    Dr.M.E
    Dr Raven
    Dr Elicit
    Dr Haven
    Dr Zoe
    Dr Monica Moo
    Dr Literary Anon

    Consultants:
    Dr Franklin F Fomentile Phd

    Medusa--Head of Administration

  29. Zoe got a call from her father, Franklin. He wanted them to accept his best friend's son for a work student program. The young man was an advanced placement high school student who wanted to study Psych. Zoe agreed with the condition that the young man would be well behaved and not cause problems. His name was Mee.

  30. This Tues, Establishment B had patients coming and going. Edvard rose to the occasion and greeted everyone warmly. Medusa gave a smile to the occasional sexy guy (usually the UPS driver or postman) Mee took to tailing Edvard, as he felt lost.

    Monica had a new patient at 10 AM. Her name was Bluebird. She arrived in a grey hoodie, with the hood pulled tightly over her head. Her shoulders were slumped, as if self esteem had been a thing of ages past such as the Greco-Roman Empire.

    Bluebird had just had an abortion. Afterwards, her boyfriend had sex with her best friend and room mate in Bluebird's very own bed. Bluebird sobbed her way through the story until the hour was up. Afterwards,she went to the front desk and made an appointment for next Tues at 10 AM. Edvard politely gave her the appointment card as Medusa flirted with the mailman.


    After the workday, the staff was going to have it's weekly Tues Afternoon staff meeting. There were general issues which always arise in a group practice, such as this.

    These meetings could be quite feisty. What was said in the group stayed in the group upon penalty of dismissal or worse.

    6. It is possible to have honest communication. Some people are very paranoid. They suspect things, but have no proof, or might be thinking it's their paranoia playing up, but they can not be sure. So they see a serious threat and refuse to show their cards. Hence the masquerade, resentment, etc.

      But if the other party put at least some of their cards on the table, as a gesture of good faith if you will, they will be more tempted to trust them. Then they can begin the peace process together.

    7. The staff meeting was adjourned. All the principals were in attendance. Everyone was at attention, except Medusa, who was texting, with the sound turned off.

      ME was, impeccably, dressed in a navy cashmere blazer, button down white oxford shirt and chinos. His hair touched his shoulders a la Tom Petty in his youthful days.

      Zoe sat next to him, having claimed that seat, being first to arrive. Raven sat next to Zoe. Raven was dressed as one would expect the resident sex therapist. She had black patent leather boots reaching the top( or almost)of her short black skirt. Her white silk blouse was opened a tasteful four buttons. Amy more would have be tacky. The four bordered it. The men were oogling Raven while the women tried not to notice.

      Literary Anon seemed to have a perennial paperback book bulging from in his suit pocket. He gave the impression that his private world could never be too far from his public one.

      Monica tried to get a glimpse of what he was reading, but she had not been able to do so and did not feel familiar enough to ask.

    9. Elicit dressed in her trademark form fitting attire. She had the body of a gymnast, at a petite 105 pounds. Whatever style of dress, it was always body hugging, so that those who were so inclined could have private moments of fantasy.

      Elicit mourned Alia, but not too much. Life goes on. Elicit never tried to form relationships. They just came to her. It had always been that way and she saw no reason to change it, now.

      Haven was the most stand-offish of the bunch. She had a reserve which was hard to break, but it could be done. You would have to prove worthy of her respect. Zoe and Monica never made it. ME did and of Elicit, she was not sure. Haven wore business suits with little cleavage or leg. Haven's private pleasure was Zoe's father, Franklin. Maybe, that was why she kept her lips zipped.Loose lips sink ships.

    12. You know Sofa, when you started writing, I'm quite sure I was not the only one thinking "what the fuck is this drivel? Is this person drunk? Oh well, at least the porn is decent".

      But the more you write, the better it gets. It's actually becoming something relevant and enjoyable. You continue to pleasantly surprise me.

      Don't get me wrong, I'll still be on your ass like a monkey on a cupcake if you start writing sub par again ;)

      Also, have never read Evan Hunter, but going to give him a go when I'm finished with MacBride. Thanks for the recommendation.
