But you don’t have to be…

In the film “Braveheart” there’s a moment when the irate king of England rants about the rebellious Scots with the phrase “Sheep! Mere sheep! Easily dispersed if you strike the shepherd!” What happens to sheep without a shepherd? They disperse, they wander, they look for a new herd. (Unless they’re Scots, in which case they drink whisky, recite poetry and start a fight).
