Gaddafi ruled over Libya for 42 years until his people grew tired enough of his rule that they banded together and ousted him. This, of course, is one of the risks of dictatorship. The trade-off is that you get to live in a palace and keep lions as pets. Still, you could do that as a heavyweight boxer too. I guess dictating requires less hours in the gym.
The point that I should have got too dozens of words ago is that dictators are bad. Movies taught me that. In fact, why don’t you go ahead and read the seven evil movie dictators that deserve to be shot in the street. If you want to that is. No pressure from me. It’s a free country.
M. Bison – Street Fighter
M. Bison is proof that powe taken by force corrupts the soul. He started his evil career in the drug trade like so many others do, and rose through the ranks to the position of drug lord. With a fictional South East Asian nature under his thumb, it wasn’t long before he took the title of General and held humanitarians for ransom.
Bullies like this make me ill. And Jean Claude Van Damme can’t always be around to give them their comeuppance. It’s up to us — we, the people — to band together and shut down a threat like this. No matter the cost.
General Garza – The Expendables
As far as brutal dictators go, General Garza is kind of a pussy. He’s easily pushed around by Eric Roberts and Stone Cold. Hey Garza, whose island is it anyway?! He deserved to be dragged into the street because of this lack of force. Oppress or get off the pot!
