The thoughts & ramblings of a young mind

Two new words I learned.

Cronyism – partiality to long-standing friends, especially by appointing them to positions of authority, regardless of their qualifications. Hence, cronyism is contrary in practice and principle to meritocracy (Wikipedia)

Nepotism – the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.

I simultaneously hate and envy those people with those connections.
