Dictatorship

Defintion

Government ruled by a dictator who has absolute power in  government.

Pros

1.     There is a more stable government. If you look at a democracy, things are always changing, but in a dictatorship since there is only one person making all the decisions, other people are not interfering in his/her decisions, so the government can progress towards a cause more easily without arguments.

2.     A dictator usually is an experienced person, citizens can make bad decisions, because they don't know much about politics or what is going on in the world and ow to fix them. If the dictator is good, then he/she might be benefiting the country instead of oppressing them.

Cons

1.     There is a higher likelihood for the government to collapse. A war is more likely to happen because citizens have absolutely no rights.

2.     If the dictator abuses his/her power and do things that are downright wrong, there will be no one to impeach the dictator. The dictator can do whatever he wants to do for a long, that can lead to mass genocides, like the Holocaust.
