I wanted to offer a new word for the new world order and the current Zeitgeist.

Kafkraftian.

An adjective meaning a cold, bureaucratic, horrifyingly alien anti-human hostility.

A blend of Kafkaesque and Lovecraftian to embody the feeling one gets from following current affairs.

Have a nice day.

This means you should read more.

Really cool books and philosophies.

I recommend starting lightly with a one pager, The Renaissance Of Manhood by Lovecraft.

As much as I like the idea, a word already exists to describe that type of person, it is four letters long and begins with a c.

Can also be used in an extended expression such as "total c"and "complete c"

Yes, good suggestion. And I'd suggest building up your intellectual stamina and tolerance for the complex and unusual before tackling The Metamorphosis.

I read that at a far too premature time in life, and now my antennae are constantly confused by new stimuli, and my mandibles have never worked right since then.

On the conspiracy theory side of things, could the reason behind the crafting of such a word be to describe Aliens once they reveal themselves in the supposed planned Alien invasion?

Why else would there be a need to describe hostile aliens...?

That was part of my own construction... virus, NWO and aliens go together like peanut butter and pickles, after all.
