The story of the sword of Damocles, a sword hung by a thread over the neck of a boastful courtier, is all about the sword and how it represents the precarious nature of life and power. But the real story was never about the sword at all, but about the people who hung it there and the people who suffered and why. Because it was never Damocles's sword to begin with.
