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.

Supergrinning is not the inane smile you get at the end of the sentence. It's when you are really excited and the grin is very broad, involves many double chins and signifies 'very pleased'. :)))))
Fetsiboomsticks was supergrinning when she came round the corner so I knew she had found the spilled milk. Her supergrin beamed 'delicious'.
