As Xi Jinping becomes the latest leader to claim dictatorial powers you might wonder aren’t the people of up and arms or are they instead secretly clapping. For as we in the west appear to crave democracies many deep down still desire dictatorships. Here are just a few reasons why a strong man/woman seems to be what the people really want.
(1) ONE TO BLAME- Life is easier when you only have one individual to blame for your problems and a dictatorship provides their picture.
(2) IMMEDIATE DECISIONS- Dictators make decisions quickly and with a determination not found in Democracies.
(3) RESULTS- When a dictator demands action it will get done and even if you don’t actually like the result at least you can plan for it to occur.
(4) PREDICTABILITY – After a while your dictator has a flow that pretty much stays on their course and therefore life’s major decisions don’t change too much overnight.
FOOTNOTE- I’m a strong believer in Democracy unless I was appointed the Dictator. Yes you can laugh out loud not to the Democracy but me as a dictator but what if….?
