What is the difference between a "democracy" and a "*true* democracy"?

Which of the many uses, meanings, and interpretations of the word,
_democracy_, did Tyler/Tyller/Tocqueville have in mind when he used

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
