Lovely new word added to our lexicon.


1. Ineptocracy  – 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
 
Seems to me an apt decription of where we have come. Is there  any escape?

love the word, very handy.  But I don't think we are quite there.  However there are pockets of ineptocracy here and there.

Looks to me like the standard right-wing drivel.

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31

Tell me why the government led by right wing Republican George W. Bush was any less inept than the one led by moderate Democrat Barack Obama.


Tell me why the federal economic policies of the current (or even the past) adminstration are any more inept than the free market economic strategy of Morgan Stanley, which just lost about 2 billion dollars (or the bankers who proceeded them five years ago and tanked the world economy).


 


Ineptness is a human characteristic, not limited to socialists or  Democrats.

Bingo...and +1


We only need look back on the last Administration to see the obvious truth in that statement.

Years ago when I was in school I read a book by Gunnar Myrdal, who was socialist prime minister of Sweden for many years.


He had spent some time in the US studying our government and concluded that socialism was impossible in the US because the quality of our civil service was not up to it.  What it boiled down to, as I remember, was too much rigid bureaucratic rule-following and decision avoidance in the organizational culture.  Energetic and imaginative managers were more likely to be found in the private sector.
