    "If you're in an argument with someone older than you, you should listen to 'em ... even if they're wrong, their wrongness is rooted in more information than you have."

    Gerontocracy is a form of  oligarchical rule in which an entity is ruled by leaders who are significantly older than most of the adult population. The ancient Greeks were among the first to believe in this idea of gerontocracies; as famously stated by  Plato "it is for the elder man to rule and for the younger to submit". However, these beliefs are not unique to ancient Greece, as many cultures still subscribe to this way of thinking. This belief has been very common in tribal communities as the lack of writing meant that people relied on older people to seek knowledge much more frequently.

    Often these political structures are such that political power within the ruling class accumulates with age, making the oldest people hold more power than others. Those holding the most power may not be in formal leadership positions, but often dominate those who are. In a simplified definition, a gerontocracy is a society where leadership is reserved for elders.

    • Necrocracy - Like me but even older, and you make me feel uncomfortable.
    • Neoliberalism - It was better when Ronnie and Maggie were in charge, but Macron decided to lower my pensions all of a sudden.


    • Progressivism - Darn hippies... (Bernie and Pelosi are really great though)
    • Nazism - We fought to liberate Europe from your newfangled evil idea. Wasn't I younger than you at the time though?
    • Alt-Right - The only "redpill" I need to take is some Tylenol after listening to these kids' internet gobbledygook.
    • Transhumanism - Darn kids and their stupid gadgets! But you can help me live longer and reduce the negative effects of old age.
