A system whereby everywhere you look there are people wanting something, begging for something, whining for something. And the needy are the ones in charge.
These are several examples of a needyocracy - a group of students who don't want to hand their projects in on time, and their attitude is "What'you gonna do about it?"; People who tell you all about their needs, and not what they are going to do about it; Criminals taking the easy way and getting away with it; Emotional neediness in relationships, and not trying to be a tiny bit independent; Bosses that can't make decisions, and won't take self-improvement courses...; etc
An alleged statement of truth. But instead it is something old fogeys (stuck in the past and head buried in the sand) believe to be a truism. A falsehood. A nonsense statement based on an old way of thinking.
It's an oldfogeyism that Facebook leads to an inability to communicate in the real world.
