DEMAGOGUE (Gr. Snµaywyos, from ciiyav, to lead, and S)pos, the people), a leader of the popular as opposed to any other party. Being particularly used with an invidious sense of a mob leader or orator, one who for his own political ends panders to the passions and prejudices of the people, the word has come to mean an unprincipled agitator.
