A New Name for Our Corporate Oligarchy
It just struck me the other day, after discussing the various transgressions of our government with a colleague, that the word oligarchy needs to be changed. In an age of euphemisms and spin, a word like oligarchy is sadly in need of replacement. Just saying the word oligarchy can elicit a deer in the head lights response, followed by a severe glazing of the eyes. So we need to make a change. Oligarchy is of course an old word. Its origins come from the Greek words for "few" (oligo) and "rule" (arkhos).
One of the most wonderful things about the English language is our ability to change it or in this case, to just make up new words. If enough people use it, soon it can be found in dictionaries around the country. So here is my new and improved word to describe our real system of government and replace that hard to say, hard to spell word; oligarchy!
GovCorp is a form of government where most or all political power effectively rests with a small segment of multinational corporations and bankers.
So there you have it. Oligarchy is out and GovCorp is in!
