  • But one should use the "k" in spelling kakographic, since it looks worse than cacographic.

  • I would prefer the spelling cacocracy, in the sense of "rule by bad people", simply because it seems strange to render the Greek kappa as "k" in one part of the word and as "c" in another part. And since -cracy and caco- are both established morphemes in English, why not use them? Unless the intention is for kako- to refer to the Yiddish/Slavic work kaka (shit). The other problem I see with the spelling kakocracy is that it would be easily confused by the offensive coinage kikocracy (rule by Jews).
