We have hyper-anarchy [government by no one], barbarocracy [government by barbarians], foolocracy [government by fools], chryso—aristocracy [government by the wealthy], diabolocracy [government by the devil], kleptocracy [government by thieves]; and as put by our own political analyst and verbal contortionist, Patrick Obahiagbon, we also have kakisto—mobo—plutocracy [government by the worst of mobs who are rich].
But then, ladies and gentlemen, I stand here today to tell us that the best of all these governmental systems, which has been tested and trusted for centuries, is nothing but Democracy [rule by the people].
