yertlism - (Pronounced to rhyme with "turtle-ism"; n.) 1.

The practice or advocacy of Yertlism; 3a. The delusion that you can actually rule "all you can see"; 3b. A (far less maniacal) delusion in which the sufferer comes to believe that he or she can (and indeed, must) control everything going on (a kind of och, perhaps); 4. a fabliau created to vilify or lampoon an enemy by attacking the philosophy he espouses.

e.g., Yertle the Turtle, by Dr. Seuss, is the seminal Yertlism from which the concept encapsulated by the term derives.

"Yeah, I know, right?---micromanagement gone mad." "Microscopic micromanagement." "Yertlism." "With Fries."
