Sunday Rest: mobocracy. Word Not To Use Today.

Mobocracy is a word used mostly by those who find democracy inconvenient.

Still, I suppose it makes everyone's position clear.

Sunday Rest: mobocracy. The word mob comes from the Latin mōbile vulgus, the fickle populace. Mōvere means to move. The - cracy bit is Greek, and comes from kratos, which means power.
