“We are a nation of sheep, and someone else owns the grass”

"We are a nation of sheep, and someone else owns the grass” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Sheep” means an order-complying animal.

“We are a nation of sheep, and someone else owns the grass-George Carlin” was posted on Twitter by Elissa (V) on July 1, 2010. The saying is usually credited to American stand-up comedian George Carlin (1937-2008), but it’s not known that he ever said it. The first citation is two years after his death.


Wikipedia: George Carlin
George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, actor, social critic, and author. Regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comics of all time, he was dubbed “the dean of counterculture comedians”. He was known for his dark comedy and reflections on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and taboo subjects.
