    Some people make derogatory remarks that those within a flock are brainwashed sheeple - saying we should think for ourself and stand independently rather than join a group, and go the same direction as others. Isolationism vs. being one of the flock... we are nothing without others - who we are is who we are with others (if you are kind, you are kind to others, if you are shy, you are shy around others) we are defined by others, created by others, lifted by others "If I have seen farther than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants" - Newton. The fittest individual survives only as long as the individual. It would be nice to see more people interested in survival of the herd, rather than the individual, that we can all be blessed with the synergy that comes from inter-dependance.
