Democracy = Duplicity

The word democracy was once a meaning used by the people defending each other during The Revolutionary War, people such as Thomas Paine, all over his writing are specific meanings employed for the word democracy.

Today the word means "two wolves and a sheep deciding what to eat for dinner," and so the meanings of old and new are roughly opposite for all intents and purposes.

The wolves were The British and the Loyalists here in American, certainly after 1776, and the democrats were calling themselves patriots.

There are always wars fought with false labels. The wolves called the patriots names like Rebels, Rabble, Insurgents, and Levelers.

The wolves threat their sheep worse than livestock so the metaphor doesn't even work.

The criminals are always criminals, even when they call themselves nice guys.
