Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the concept
'mediocracy' is a condition in which culture is subordinated to pseudo-egalitarian ideology. Symptoms include: dumbing, jargonism, infantilisation, vacuity, phoney democratisation and authoritarianism.
A key weapon of the mediocratic agenda is the Orwellian redefinition of words and ideas.

When the capital development of a country becomes a by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done. — John M. Keynes

Damn.  I was quite certain I'd coined that term.
