Well, Vin Scully had a perfect response (socialism related).

Two studies say America is currently a Oligarchy by policy design! It will be interesting to see what happens in July when the Republicans do not follow the Primary results of its own election and nominate someone other than Trump with whatever's means they intend to use! Also it's cute that most states voting machines have no paper trail and very strict limitations and odd polling situations.

It wasn't a very funny joke, and was really not appropriate in terms of getting actual discussion instead of confusion. I've changed the thread title to match the opening post and what seems to be the actual intent.

Military dictatorship is probably the least stable form of government in the long-term. Without a clear line of succession and an orderly transfer of power the government will start disintegrating as people try to claim control for themselves. Military dictatorships in particular are prone to this because they rely on the loyalty of armies to maintain their hold on power, so any general with enough soldiers at his command can do whatever he pleases if he's popular enough.

Any dictatorship dissolves pretty quickly, but I still think they kill fewer people than, say, communism.

I guess in a manner of speaking that is true. In another way, Marx-Leninism was an oligarchy. A small group of people controlled everything and enforced it through brutal secret police and military strength.

The problem is, to reiterate you point, is that your consolidating too much power in a too little space, particularly an unchecked government fleeing the bindings of a usually failed previous government that hadn't had these checks in the first place. As Thomas Jefferson eloquently puts it, "if men were angels, we wouldn't need government." The fact that men aren't angels is why government is so dangerous in the first place. I think you helped me along to that realization.
