The word ochlocracy means “government by the mob; mob rule”
This word came into English in the late 1500s
Background / Comments
The word came into English from the Middle French word ochlocratie (mob rule), which came from the Greek word ochlokratia (mob rule), which comes from ochlos (mob) and -kratia (rule). I much prefer the Republican form of government; mob rule is no fun if one is the victim of the mob.
