Quote of the Week - Jorge Luis Borges


"Dictatorships foster oppression, dictatorships foster servitude, dictatorships foster cruelty; more abominable is the fact that they foster idiocy."– Jorge Luis Borges

The primary reason a dictatorship usually exists is to satisfy the power-crazy mania of the person who is the dictator of that country (as was the case with Adolf Hitler of Nazi Germany).

A dictatorship has no real benefit for a country or for the people of that country. In fact, a dictatorship usually denies the people of that country their innate rights -- as well as other rights -- to which they are entitled.
