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.

Hmm, is getting smarter or finding new sources of wisdom on the inet to parrot?
This sparks me to try an alternative definition of “negative feedback loop”. Ingineers use these to “damp” down oscillations and prevent “runaways” aka “positive feedback loop”.
“National negative feedback loop for productivity and wealth creation: A situation where the balance of producers and consumers tips to consumption. The political class gains advantage by promising more consumption for consumes by robbing the wealth of the producers. Producers, being the more intelligent and productive members of the “hive” recognize that they are getting <synonym for the past tense of the procreation act> and “damp” their productivity to a level sufficient for their own needs. This deprives society of the capital necessary to improve the capital stock of society as a whole. Think the “king” orders the “seed corn” be made into bread for distribution at the circuses. Clearly a downward spiral in entropy. This can only be broken by a catastrophe. A national revolution that wipes out the political class and replaces it with more enlightened “rulers” (e.g., French Revolution). A natural disaster such as Rome burns. Human evolution develops a new releases of “homo sapiens” that is hardier than the current release and “pushes out” the old version of humans (i.e., Rome is sacked by the Barbarians). “We, The Sheeple” rise up in a tax revolt (i.e., the Tea Party).”
