I'm looking for a word describing those who act like sheep to the shepherd, blindly following the leader figure, without considering their own actions. If I could conceive of such a word, I might make it something like "igorical" (reminiscent of Igor, who blindly follows his mad scientist leader).
Example of use (applying to behavior):
It is in such igorical behavior that such an election can arise.
Example of use (applying to people):
It is in the existence of such igorical people that such an election can arise.
