The intent of a demagogue is not reasoned discussion, but solely to inflame. To anger people so much that they won't stop to think. And it's growing in a segment of leadership within the Republican Party.
Demagogues like Coughlin and Beck use ever more shrill appeals to cause serious short-term turmoil but, in the process, turn their followers' hearts to stone. People are happier, Day believed, when they are good.
