chronocracy n (Greek khronos, time + Greek kratia, power or rule) Ð rule by the laws of time and by the force of temporality; a form of government based on the recognition of time constraints on any form of power and the necessity for periodic change of leaders and transfer of powers on all levels. Under chronocracy, the social life is determined by the regular replacement of political, scientific, economic, and cultural trends, methods, fashions, and personnel in measured periods of time. Presidents, computers, car models, artistic trends, dress cuts, schoool textbookss, etc. have to change periodically to maintain their authoritative status as "new."
Is America a democracy and what does the term "demos" mean as applied to contemporary societies? No doubt, however, that America is a chronocracy, with a rigid system of enforced change on all levels, from political leaders to dress fashions and technological designs.

Chronocracy n (Greek khronos, time + Greek kratia, power or rule) Ð rule by the laws of time and by the force of temporality; The act of stealing time by a government from its citizens, by keeping them too busy with non-jobs, to notice the devaluing of their currency, over a longer period of time, making the citizen obligated to perform more and more work, for less actual self yield, as compared to an earlier time, like we see happening though "the eternal crisis" today.

By slowly devaluing money in a citizen's pocket, his time becomes worth less overall, (less money compared to older and more money equals rule by old over new power) thus he must work longer total of hours of his total life, to avoid becoming a persona non grata. Newly born citizens are born in a already divided up world, forever chanceless to come into power over previous gathered, and expanded over time fortunes.
The literal meaning of the word Chronocracy, has changed from original thought.
