    HK_User A Productive Monkey is a Happy Monkey


    Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

    Well that just fits the country to a "t."

    ...although I wouldn't necessarily call it a "system" of gov't. That would give them too much credit.

    Yeah - That's good!

    One would suppose that it should give rise to a description of those who are members of such an organization -- the "ineptocrat".

    "by the least capable of producing"

    come now, computers have enabled high production and in many cases are required - CNC machining for example.

    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    Triple High-Five on that one!

    Ineptocracy, indeed!

    The least competent to lead are selected by the least competent to select them.

    I think that's a truly elegant concept.
