Dictatorship

Dorothee

Well, I'm interested in foreign countries (especially developing countries) and in some political subjects aswell. Now my question is: How many dictatorships do still exist? Which states are still ruled by dictators? Without thinking much I only remember some states discriminating againgst ethnic minorities or women,-please read also the comments under the photo http://www.englishbaby.com/findfriends/view_photo/580782 to understand what I mean-but I don't know the exact number of undemocratic countries that still exist. I just want to know!

Well, since dictatorships are undemocratic I just thought that since always writing "dictatorship" sounds dumb I betimes could replace it by the term "undemocratic country" and I hoped you'd still understand. Of course I know the difference between an undemocratic state and a real dictatorship. So again: How many states are still ruled by dictators? Could you give me these states' names if possible?

in developing countrist may happensomething against democracy because folks also developing. i mean half of citizens are ignorant in many things..

by using TV Radio, newspaper  you can control a big part of folks even in developed countries such as U.S.A, EU..

 

Dictatorship doesnt mean only a man will come (for instanse Saddam Husein)  and will force to do what he wants.. we have seen those examples in history..

we are in an age where people consider their selves as a peace dove.

modern dictatorship work under socialism, democracy by using media and some psyhcologic weapon.

it is not neccessary to try to remember about old examples. Nearly time we witnesed a referandum in an europe country called Swiss.. referandum was about minaret in Swiss..

Politicans who was against others worked well.. PLease check poster out

 

 Poster says that Swiss will bea muslim country if you dont be against minaret.. Politicacians talked about  "Muslims will conquer you if we dont say  stop" and they said about Moammer Kaddafi  and his ideas..  So, folks are cheated… if you scar people they will sooner or later will support you.. and it  was clearly that if  you ask about muslims right in a christian country, sure they will not aprove..

 

i mean

THERE IS NO DEMOCRACY EVEN IN DEVELOPED COUNTRIES, DO YOU ASK ABOUT DEVELOPING AND POOR COUNTRIES ?

By the way Myanmar, Sudan, Niger, Guinea, Mauritania and Fiji are dictatorships too. Military dictatorships!

Especially developing countries prone to dictatorships like these!
