Just felt I had to share this :
kakistocracy \kak-uh-STAH-kruh-see\ (noun)
: government by the worst people
The free election won’t guarantee an end to kakistocracy,
because none of the candidates have any more integrity than the
corrupt dictator currently in power.
Did you know?
A reader of Time magazine was once so surprised to find
this rare and unusual word in the pages of that publication
that he decided the occasion warranted a letter to the editor.
“Where in the name of Semanticus, did your writer come up with
that word ‘kakistocracy,’” he wrote in a letter dated February
6, 1956. “Is it a government of parrots?” (A “kaka” is a New
Zealand parrot.) Good guess, but “kakistocracy” actually
originated as a combination of the Greek “kakistos” (superlative
of “kakos,” which means “bad”) and the English suffix “-cracy,”
meaning “form of government.”
