People who rely solely on the opinions, views and judgements of others - whether its the media, celebreties or generally just the rest of the crowd. People who respect authority from society are not sheep - this is necessary in modern life. If they obey authority if the law is bad, then they are sheep. But people who follow every fashion, follow what they see on the T.V., or do or say something just because "everyone else does it" are pure sheep. For example, people who constantly criticise George W. Bush and say he is a corrupt dictator who's not doing his job properly just because Michael Moore said so and he made a seemingly convinving documentary are clear examples of sheep. People who rebel against society and school (e.g. Chavs) for the sake of being "cool" or "rude boy" are also counted as sheep.
At my school we had a session about the Arab-Israeli crisis, and people were moaning, saying "no-one cares" or "no-one wants to do this. I say follow them." Pure Sheep.
