Wrong on both counts! How could a native speaker not understand the etymology of basic words in their own language? Demos and Daimonos? Nice try!

It's like when black Americans claim to be spiritually African and then name themselves Mbutu, or when people from Seattle wear kilts. It's just WRONG, and it ends up with all kinds of shitty things like Kwanzaa.

Y'know, some of us in Seattle are real Scots. So shet yer geggy, ye bawbag.

IrishWhiskey - 2008-09-17

I'll grant you that Kwanzaa sucks, but what's wrong with the name Mbutu?

1574, from M.Fr. democratie, from M.L. democratia (13c.), from Gk. demokratia, from demos "common people," originally "district" (see demotic), + kratos "rule, strength" (see -cracy).

1387, from L. dæmon "spirit," from Gk. daimon (gen. daimonos) "lesser god, guiding spirit, tutelary deity," (sometimes including souls of the dead), used (with daimonion) in Christian Gk. translations and Vulgate for "god of the heathen" and "unclean spirit."

Nice try though.

I was about to post just about the same comment.

its amazing how these zeitgeist building 7 dipshits lie about basic facts to form their entire arguments.

Helena Handbasket - 2008-08-13

Yes, thank you.
I once knew a guy who insisted the definition of democracy was "restriction of freedom and rule by the elite"... I had no response to this except silent shock.
I like words, I like words being understood properly in their context.

This is the most sad, easily-refuted argument I've seen... oh... in the past week or so. Probably.

Dear UK People On This Particular Internet,

Did the U.S. export this, or is this partially a homegrown thing of your own?

HoityPaloity! I choose you!

charmlessman - 2008-08-13

Hoity Toity - Slang for rich people.
Hoi Polloi - Slang for poor people.

So he's got it all wrong AGAIN!!

Alexander the Great was half fallen angel, Abe Lincoln was a robot from Atlantis, Mark Twain was a shaved Ewok, and my fantasy novel is coming along great.

1. Good thing we haven't actually seen democracy proper anywhere in 2000 years, except for possibly Switzerland, and only then for about a century.

2. This is very common Fundamentalist neo-con style belief, especially in the Baptist/KJV Only types. Trust me, I grew up in this sort of bullshit.

What exactly is he proposing as an alternative? Democracy is all about demon possession, but the great (usually unelected) men of history were abominations. Exactly what middle-ground of non-demonic government should we be striving for here?

Man Who Fights Like Woman - 2009-09-27

Clearly, the only alternative is Communism.

CharlesSmith - 2010-12-31

Do you really not realize that what he wants is Theocracy?

This is beyond my loftiest expectations. Check out his other videos. It's just amazing.
