    Re: Who is your favorite dictator?

    I would prefer some other choices....

    My tastes tend to be German for these sorts of questions, though I favor the politics of the Second Reich over the excesses of the Third, which set back perhaps forever the chance for Germany to be the great Central European germanic counterbalance to global Anglo-Americanism; without Imperial Germany as a friendly and fearsome rival in global politics it seems like Britain, France, and the US get lazy and decay from within.

    So I would vote for

    Erich Ludendorff and/or Paul von Hindenburg as proxy dictators for the Kaiser 1916-18 during the so called "Third Supreme Command", the martial-law reorganization for Total War imposed to win versus overwhelming odds against the world Entente Cordiale/ 1914-20 Allied Powers.

    Bismarck, while my favorite historical politician from all of world history, and autocratic, does not really qualify as a dictator, or I'd vote for him.

    George Bush deserves mention here. He was first elected by the US Supreme Court, not the people, and in five short years he has managed to take all our constitutional rights away at his whim.

    I voted for Pol Pot probably because I enjoy the song "holiday in cambodia by the dead kennedys" so much. Although I must admit Hitler and Stalin were also very influential and extremely powerful leaders.

    Pol Pot was a visionary (not to say that the others weren't.) he wanted to bring his country back to "the good ole days" where there was one king (or communist dictator in this case) and a primitive, yet simple and beautiful agricultural empire. He completely failed his people in the end, millions died because he wouldn't allow them to use modern tools and there was simply not enough food to go around. Ironically enough coming out of rich roots he was burned in a pile of trash and car tires like the piece of garbage he was.

    Hitler in my eyes was a great leader because he did EVERYTHING for the people, he saved a nation of hungry people with the sharpest looking uniforms, and the most formidable army the world had ever seen. Too much effort was spent on ethnic cleansing, the war could have been won, but by undermining the soviets he awaked the great hybernating bear...the bear that would weaken the third Reich enough that it ran out of steam and was crushed by the Allied invasion.

    One question-how come "George W Bush" isn't in the choice list?

    I couldn't agree with you more, that's also what I said.

    I voted Hitler. I don't think Skadi Forum would exist without him.

    Really, I think germanic heritage has little to do with Hitler other than he was a leader of the germans.

    Dictatorship / Your Favorite Dictator

    Some members frequently say that the masses are too idiotic to make choices for themselves. Do you think dictatorship is an ideal form of government? Why/why not?

    While we are discussing this, vote for your favorite dictator(s). What do you notice from the list? How many Germanic dictators are there? Could we thus jump to the conclusion that dictatorship is not a typically Germanic system? Add anything else you like about dictatorship.

    Dictatorship is an ungermanic system. I believe it is contrary to the old Germanic values. Germanics were free, liberal people. Dictatorship is incompatible with the true Germanic way of life. It belongs to the Judaics, Muslims, Communists and National Socialists.

    With all due respect Nachthimmel, but listing George W Bush in a list of Dicators is really really nonsense.
