    Default "If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier...?

    "If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."


    I did a search on this, found 17k exact matches.

    Is this a real quote?

    If it is, are you pissed?

    Safety first, and all that, but when you start putting rubber baby buggy bumpers on an intense sandbox MMORPG like Darkfall you're really committing quite a heinous degree of heresy.

    The most interesting thing is the video though.

    It's very informative if a thread like this fails.

    I still reckon a benevolent dictator is the best way to go for government.

    At least things get done with dictators.

    Not per sé. Look at Mugabe in Zimbabwe, he single handedly absolutely ruined the country.

    Imagine if Bush was in office for 20 years

    The difference is that in the USA you can still impeach your president, that's not possible with real dictatorships, you need a revolution or coupe d'état for instance then

    <Teth> It's best not to talk to Gunther, though
    <Jarlaxle> why ? he's a legend
    <Teth> He's primarily a legend because he's very good at antagonizing the ops without going far enough to be pwnz0red

    <@erik> Gunther will, true to his nature, probably get himself banned again soon enough ;)

    Dear Gunther, please explain to me how Mugabe was benevolent.

    In more cases than not, when government "gets things done" it generally includes the slaughter of a few million people. Yeah, I'll pass on government "getting things done".

    True.

    Buts that's because people are, as a rule, closet bastards.

    When one rises above the rest they no longer fear the judgement of their peers and so they let their bastard side run free. In a government, however, people like to consider themselves a better person than the man next to them.

    But, if you could get a dictator that wasn't a complete and utter bastard I'm sure it would work.

    This thread is about the donkey Bush!

    But yeah sure, a dictator could perhaps do it but the problem is how do you make sure you get a good one after him? Or how do you remove him if he gets shitty.

    People who want to run the lives of other people, as a rule, are closet bastards.

    And if I could shit rainbows my crap would taste like skittles.
