Craptopia (crap + utopia)

"Craptopia” (crap + utopia) is similar to the word “dystopia” (a dysfunctional utopia). An Urban Dictionary entry, from February 9, 2009, defined it:

“n. an imperfect place or state where everyone lives in discord and everything is for the worst”

The commenter “Tombstone” on the financial blog Zero Hedge mentioned “socialist craptopia” in April 2013 and July 2013, and “Kommie craptopia” in July 2013.

CRAPTOPIA: An experiment in dystopian long-form improvisational theater
by Daniel John Sullivan Posted on April 30, 2012

Yes… The future is CRAP – CRAPTOPIA!

If you can imagine all of this, and more, you can participate in an experiment in long-form dramatic/comedy in 3 acts. An improvisational sensation basing itself on the theme of the Dystopian Film Genre (1984, Logans Run, Brazil, Soylent Green, Omega Man, Planet of the Apes, Mad Max, THX1138, The MATRIX, etc, etc, etc).

Oh, that silly Benny goosing the markets.  Don’t be shocked if we go into fantasyland with a 1995-2000 stock blast off that lasts the rest of this decade.  If the FED is going to be there to stifle any economic downturn with gaggles and gaggles of QE, where is the risk?  So far, Kommie craptopia is working like the dream that it is.
