Clueless? I’d say busy. They got lives to deal with, caught up in the whirlwind of life doing the best they can. We’re lucky that we can sit and ponder stuff. They’re lucky if they can get the lollipop unstuck from the kid’s hair.
Chaos. If your life is surrounded by chaos, you’re not a sheep – you’re just making do as best you can with what you have to work with.
Besides: sheep are sheep. Humans are humans. One has wool. The other is you and me.
