“America: A nation of sheep, owned by pigs, ruled by wolves”

"Nation of sheep, ruled by wolves, owned by pigs” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “To survive in a nation of sheep, ruled by wolves, owned by pigs, you must become a lion” is another saying that has been printed on many images. Authorship is unknown.

“A society of sheep will beget a government of wolves” is a saying by French philosopher, political economist, and futurist Bertrand de Jouvenel (1903-1987) from the 1940s. American author and naval officer William Lederer (1912-2008) titled his book about United States foreign policy A Nation of Sheep (1961). American syndicated columnist Andrew Napolitano titled his book Constitutional Chaos: The Constitution in Exile: A Nation of Sheep (2007). The term “sheep” means submissive to authority and persuasion by others.

“‘NATION OF SHEEP. RULED BY WOLVES. OWNED BY PIGS,’ says a button for sale at the front counter” was printed in the Philadelphia (PA) Inquirer on February 25, 1998.

“America: A nation of sheep, run by wolves, owned by pigs” was posted on the newsgroup alt.os.linux on June 8, 1999. “I saw an Iraqi demonstrator’s placard on TV the other day. It read: ‘America: a nation of sheep owned by pigs and led by wolves’” was printed in the Chicago (IL) Tribune on January 9, 2003. “ I saw a long-haired protestor carrying a sign: america: a nation of sheep, owned by pigs, ruled by wolves” was printed in the book The Only Kayak: A Journey into the Heart of Alaska (2005) by Kim Heacox. “America: A Nation of Sheep, Owned by Pigs, Ruled by Wolves” was posted on Twitter by Khristofor Saraga on May 1, 2009.

“In a world owned by pigs, ran by wolves, full of sheep… Be a lion! Lions overcome it all!!” was posted on Twitter by Mr. Deeds on July 16, 2013. “to survive a nation of sheep ruled by wolves owned by pigs you must become a #lion” was posted on Twitter by Don Mega on November 24, 2016. “To survive in a nation of sheep, ruled by wolves, owned by pigs, you must become a lion” was posted on Twitter by Nuskii on December 25, 2016.

As William Lederer said, we’ve become a nation of sheep. Someone recently expanded on that by pointing out that today the flock is owned by pigs. And herded by wolves.

Later on television, as the American public continued to pump gas at Exon stations everywhere into their single-occupant vehicles that got poorer gas mileage than Henry Ford’s Model T of seventy-five years earlier, I saw a long-haired protestor carrying a sign: america: a nation of sheep, owned by pigs, ruled by wolves.
