    Based on his context cues, of course. Maybe Democide would be closer, but that would apply to the Repeal Without Replacement.

    Epidemic is probably the best word, but it does not have the impact of "all the best words", eh?

    I interpreted his use of the word as a metaphor, and I'll leave it at that.
