Ineptocracy

Recommended Posts

' 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 sum up our island in a word.

It may well be that we have an ineptocracy but I don't think we can entirely remove it from the realm of possibility that there may be method to the madness coming from those who pull the strings.

What are you basing that on?

I wasn't making an actual claim. I was just suggesting it as a possibility. However, it does seem like the Isle of Man Government takes a lot of its marching orders from off-island. From who, I don't know. It seems like a lot of the governments across the globe take their marching orders from outside their own borders and it seems to happen in an orchestrated way, with similar or the exact same policies and even the same talking points being carried out at exactly the same time in completely different countries.

Well, several words but one definition and it is 100% accurate in describing the manner in which this Island is administered. Regretably, until the 'more capable to lead' put themselves forward for election and then set about dismantling the apparatus of the bloated Manx socialist state nothing will change.

A few if them T-shirts along with the classic 'Bell's View Of The Future' around the island wouldn't go amiss.

''....elected by the least capable...''

 

Let's not deviate away from the knuckle-headed electorate who puts them there in the first instance. The worst offenders are usually those who believe they're making some sort of statement by refusing to vote and then complaining the loudest. There would appear to be no such word for 'discernment' in the manx language and because of all this inertia and political dis-interest of its people, this place gets the government it rightly deserves.

Utah - a socialist state would not introduce a so called toilet tax and neither would its leaders have the stupidity to publicly declare it inherently unfair. Surely this could only come from an ineptocracy!!

I think it was Solon (?) who made it the law that every Athenian citizen must vote? Anyway, that didn't include slaves and probably only included males who were land-owners, but I do like the idea of making voting mandatory.

 

I voted and I'm very happy with my MHK who voted against this stupid toilet tax and regularly gets up the nose of the establishment.

There were white slaves on the Mayflower -- "indentured servants".
