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.


Millitary dictatorship sounds interesting!
Will research it more!
Thank you!

Keep in mind when you do that military dictatorship is less of a single form of government than it is a blanket term for any regime where the military has a significant say in how the country is going to be lead without a powerful leash of civilian oversight. Imperial Japan is an example of how not having powerful leashes on the military can really lead you into hot water. Also, the Roman Empire is a pretty good example. The power of the emperor was dependent on commanding the loyalty of the legions. While there could be periods of stability, it wasn't uncommon for civil war to start once the current emperor died and the legions threw in their lot with their general. Thats what happens when the line of succession is based on the personal loyalties and desires of armies.

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.


Indeed we need government, but must be wary of government, because we are not angels. All governments have their flaws, and we must be aware of, and on guard against, those flaws. I hope your realization leads you to great things.

It's widely proselytized that the UK leaving the EU will destroy both the UK and the EU.

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.



Trumps says otherwise. If the republicans pull anything dirty it will be an easy win for Shillary. If they try to screw over trump they might as well throw away half their voting base and they KNOW that. Trump will get pissed off and make his own party and take half the republican party with him.

A lot of communidt governments were dictatorships, particularly marxism leninism.


Communism is the perfect government for perfect people making perfect decisions at the perfect time with perfect knowledge and perfect implementation of decisions. The problem is that humans are running it and we are as far from perfect as you can get.

Also life sucks as a communist.
