Also, I always shake my head a little bit when people use the word "Groupthink" to describe macro-level behavior when it's actually a theory by Janis with a very specific set of definitions that's only relevant to micro-level behavior, specifically, group decision-making.
In all seriousness, I've never liked the word "sheep" or "sheeple". I always thought that it lacked originality (no irony intended); and generally, I'd rather people just be
individuals rather than spend all of their time trying to convince me that they are individuals.
