I think a majority of the people who think living under a dictatorship is worth a try,don't have a full understanding of how they work. The dictators don't just take rights away from the scapegoated enemies, but often turn on many of those who they were formerly aligned with them, if those people have something the dictator wants, or they dissent with the dictator on even the most minor of points.

Eventually. most will wake up. When the political reality they voted for is enacted. Most won't be happy. OAITW r.2.0 May 23 #1
