By the way, Demagogy or demagoguery (Ancient Greek [2] δημαγωγία, from δῆμος dēmos «people» and ἄγειν agein «to lead») is a strategy for gaining political power [3] by appealing to the prejudices [4]emotions [5]fears [6] and expectations [7] of the public—typically via impassioned rhetoric [8] and propaganda [9], and often using nationalist [10]populist [11] or religious [12] themes. What qualifies as demagogy has been the subject of debate and ambiguity since Aristophanes [13] first used the term, in reference to Cleon [14].
