Absolutely.&nbsp; Without sheep, the shepherds would have nothing to shear, and 
no one to sell to, i.e., no transfer of wealth.&nbsp; Actually, if there's a 
religion, it's money.&nbsp; We worship the stuff, can't get enough of it, bow 
down before those who have it, measure everything and everyone against 
it.&nbsp; Imagine if sheep stopped worshiping money...

Which leaves out just about everybody.&nbsp; It's the sheep that make the world 
go round.&nbsp; 

&lt;SARCASM&gt; &nbsp;It's the shepherds and the wolves. The sheep are there to 
be shorn and turned into lamb chops.&nbsp;
