Perhaps dictatorship is the solution?
The fact that the Wehrmacht lost the battle of Stalingrad
does not prove
that we, as humanity,
have closed our accounts with fascism.
In many of us there nestles the hope
of a Messiah, an
who will save us from all the evils
that afflict us.
there are enough
examples of countries where
they were not only satisfied with their dictator,
but really adored him.
Fascism is not dead.
It is just lying in wait.
The problem is not
solved by exorcism,
or even by
the mention of its name.
If we really believe
that over time the
to our problems cannot be
left to the rule of one man
or the small group around him,
we need to think
we do not like this system.
— I don't like it, because it limits my freedom.
It doesn't allow me to express my opinion
and it obliges me to follow decisions
I do not agree with.
Anyway in any system
you have to follow decisions
with which you disagree.
Whether a few make
the decisions or many.
you are living
with the illusion
that under the current system
of "party politics" you are free,
what bothers you in a dictatorship
is the lack of freedom.
— It isn't an illusion.
It's the truth.
No one coerces me.
I am absolutely free to choose whether
I will drink Coca Cola or Pepsi Cola.
(Certainly, I have to admit that advertising influences me.
This last spot with the balloon was impressive).
But in the end, the decision is made by me.
I will decide whether Hillary Clinton
Donald Trump will be President.
And I can say what I think openly, without fear.
The problem with the restriction of freedom,
dictatorship inevitably enforces,
as it has to impose the will of the few on
the many, is a side issue.
The basic question is another:
Is the decision of the few right or wrong?
If it is correct,
and I disagree out
of ignorance, then the fault is mine.
