    Above, The Stultorum Chorea – The dance of fools; a group of fools join hands and dance in a ring around a fool playing a trumpet. A print made by Franz Hogenberg 1550-1600 British Museum collection.
    We have discovered a new word today: Idiocracy.
    Definition: Idiocracy (Greek ἰδιώτηςκρατία idiōtēskratía, from ἰδιώτης “person lacking professional skill”, and κράτος kratos “power”) is a form of government that places power in the hands of a small, privileged ruling class of fools. The term derives from the Greek idiōtēskratía, meaning “rule of the fools”.
