Get the Dictatorship mug.
Dictatorship is a form of government where the leader of the country owns all of its citizens and their souls. Dictatorship kicks ass and it works, unlike communism. No hippies, no feminazi's, no bullshit, and if there is, they'll either go to another fucking country or be sentenced to death by firing squad. Depending on your dictator, you can live with peace and tranquility, or live a life of fear, or a live of poverty but either way, you take the shit without any complaining, unless you want to die that is.
I'm going to be a dictator when I grow up, and I'll end poverty...but I'll endorse the death penalty. Dictatorship

A dictatorship, in the true sense of the word, represents a TEMPORARY government established in times of severe civil caos. A group of people, the take power, and reorganize the state with authoritarian rule for a short period of time. In practice, this group of people do not take power to reform the state for the benefit of the people, but for the benefit of themselves, and, usually, stay in power for a long period of time.
