Chronocentrism is the belief that, of all the billions of years of history, the times you live in are the culmination of the workings of the Universe.
(i) On March 26 1997 39 members of the Heaven's Gate religious group committed mass suicide in order to live on a spaceship which was following comet Hale-Bopp, and escape the Earth before it was recycled.

Showing Chronocentrism can have tragic consequences

(ii) "The End of History" by Francis Fukuyama

Showing Chronocentric ideas, barely credibly, are taken very seriously by mainstream politics and economics.

Derived from "Squillionaire," "squill" is a dereogatory term for anyone who accumulates, flaunts, hoardes, or otherwise posseses wealth beyond reason.
Uugh, look at that squill parking his Lambo in the bike lane.

This fucking squill bought herself a Gucci handbag last week and gave $5 to my GoFundMe for insulin.

My landlord raised the rent again but they still wont fix the leaky roof. What a squill!
