Frankly, I got Pavlovian reactions associated with that word. Just hearing it used so many times a day has render it totally meaningless. The more they use it trying to convince me we live in a "democracy" the more empty and devout of NY meaning the word begins to sound. This is what happens whenever a word is used too often; it loses its semantic meaning and becomes a sequence of sounds. I suspect it it the same with the faceless sheeple, but since we rarely if werv see real people giving their honest view o the media I am left guessing.
The corporate owned media around the world daily sings the praises of "democracy". What is "democracy" in pure semantic terms? It means the government and will of the people. It came from Greece were supposedly the Greek invented it. Right. Ancient Greece was hardly what one would call a real democratic society; they had slavery and the slaves had zero rights. What's much worse, the women in ancient Greece weere NOT allowed to vote; this the L people left to vote were the men. That is the real truth: slavery and only the men voting yet they keep on telling us it was a "democracy" So much fore ancient Greece.
