Shortage of sheepdogs

Often, we talk to each other in an echo chamber. We wonder why some people "Don't get it." The reason is, most people are sheep. Some are wolves.

Watch the below, it is a perfect example of the concept in a non-military context. Click here for the background story, but note what you don't see. I know in a walk down the P-way, 99% of my Sailors would have been next to that man in a matter of seconds. We, by training and nature, run towards the challenge - we resolve the problems. That is why it is called "Service."

Such a mindset is not common. It is not regular. The sheep need sheepdogs. Without them, well - you see it below.
