“Hypocracy.”

Stop it! Please. I mean it.

Not only have you misspelled “hypocrisy,” ye unlettered, you’ve frittered away a perfectly good neologism.

What are we seeing in the Middle East today (for now, anyway)?

Hypocracy, n.— from Gk. ὑπο (below, beneath) and κράτος (power). Rule from below.

Can we even now seize this solecism and make a silk purse of it?
