Hello, or Goodnight for the european peoples.

This might be a weird idea, but I have a lot of funny ideas. I've wanted to be a dictator, or just simply rule my country by myself a long time now. Or maybe just some months.. If I would rule Sweden by my own, I would (probably) make Sweden to a better country, or, just simply better than today. Is there anyone who share this kind of thoughts? Do you just slam your forehead sometimes and just think "D*mn politicians! I can make that 100 times better!" What would you do for YOUR country if you would have the change to rule YOUR country for maybe one year from tomorrow.

This might be a funny thread. Big grin

And I support democracy, whatever I say in this thread about my "leadership".

Dictators seem to have a higher probability of being killed by the people or comitting suicide.

Kick out illegal immigrants, and ANCflyer, and his polar bear.

I'm pretty sure I'd make an excellent dictator !

1. Windfall taxes all round - oil companies, investment banks, any entity with more than 100 million euros per year profit, that's it - hand it over.

2. Renationalise all electricity, water, post and telecoms - these are necessities and should not be in private profiteering hands. Money from windfall taxation to pay for infrastructure upgrades.

3. Renationalise railways and ATC for similar reasons. Forcibly merge all European ATC into 3 or 4 main control centres - national airspace is a waste of time (and trust me, none of the control centres would be in France !).

4. Guaranteed free (ie. no cost to the student or their family) tertiary education for 4 years for anyone who wants it. 7 years for medical etc, but NO FREE EDUCATION for lawyers. And anyone who wants to wank about afterwards with doctorates till they're 35, can pay for it themselves.

5 Dissolve parliament - a random lottery will nominate citizens as People's Deputies to serve for 6 months in a People's Advisory council. It will have no decision making powers, but will serve to advise the Supreme Oh Most Wonderful One as to the wishes of the general populace.

6. Compulsory civilian service for all 18-20 years olds, for a year, doing work of national and community benefit. Paid, just not very well. And NO EXCEPTIONS.

7. Absolute guaranteed equality of treatment regardless of age (except Andy), gender, religion or sexual preference (except sicko kiddie-pervs, who will be locked up for the remainder of their natural lives).

8. Absolute freedom of AND FROM religion. Religion will be a private matter, and will in NO WAY impact public policy or the application of the law. NO religious education in school, no public display or endorsement of religion of any kind. Oaths will be replaced by affirmations.

9. Peace, love and karmic transcendence. And Friday's is Free Donut Day.

If I were dictator or Britain, I'd:

1) Re-introduce the death penalty for the worst of crimes and anyone involved in anything to do with child pornography, child molesting etc.

2) Make our criminal justice system tougher on the criminals, currently, it really is a joke.

3) Re-introduce national service.

4) Make the U.K a whole single nation.

5) Make the National Health Service , water companies , banks, British oil companies and the transport system completely government owned, all profits would go into a trust, which would then be spent on whatever needs spending on.

6) Give regional governments a larger say in what happens in their areas.

7) Arm all police officers.

8) Increase criminal punishment and lower the standards they live in while in prison, I'd re-introduce solitary confinement and make all cells bare and basic, oh, and only give them treatment by Junior/trainee medical staff, after all, they are in there to be punished, it'd make criminals fear prison.
9) Ban non-informative newspapers, like the sun, perhaps that would help increase the number of brain cells the youth seem to have.

10) Slap huge taxes on 4X4 drivers, since almost none of them use them off road.

11) Introduce a scheme which would mean that every house-hold and place of business must have either a solar panel or wind turbine.

12) Ban ALL radical/extremist gatherings, not just of musilms or of terrorists, but of all faiths, nationalities, races etc.

13) Ban the flying of anything to do with war time Germany

No smiting of enemies ? No giant monuments to oneself ? No outrageous populist measures to ensure everlasting divinity ? What's the point of being a dictator if you can't oppress the odd mass or two ?

Well, the problem is that "giant" turns out to be life-size.

I started out so inclined. I'm lately come to believe that Imelda Marcos did a great service to her people. We need leaders with lots of shoes.

Quoting JGPH1A (Reply 9):

Oppression of the masses is the role of my keen insight, coruscating wit and Spockian logic on this forum. From time to time a mass or two will skulk off to a nearby website and commiserate about me. Being a magnanimous despot I let them live.

That sounds a good idea, perhaps I should have a word with Kim Jong-il on how to put huge bronze statues of oneself to best effect.

Which means that any company with equity of more than around 1 billion Euros would become non-viable (as nobody would invest in them). That means companies like Airbus, Renault, Mercedes, Alstom, Fiat all shut down. Helloooo, unemployment!

Quoting JGPH1A (Reply 2):
2. Renationalise all electricity, water, post and telecoms - these are necessities and should not be in private profiteering hands. Money from windfall taxation to pay for infrastructure upgrades.

a few years ago, before Swisscom lost its government monopoly on telecomunications in Switzerland, calls to the US cost about 1 franc per minute. As soon as competition stepped in, it went down to around 0.10 francs per minute, where it still is today, and they are still making plenty of money. Government monopolies are just as bad as private monopolies.

Agreed.

Agreed, but you should allow privately funded religious displays, like a christmas creche in a shopping mall. Banning privately funded displays would be religious repression or persecution, and you don't want that (or do you?).

mm, if I became dictator of Scotland, the first thing I would do is build up a sizeable army, then once I had a decent army, invade england.

I would then rule england from Edinburgh, strip it of its national identity and push scotland to all the companies and tourists wishing to visit/invest, rather than "britain" as a whole. I would ban the english from flying their flag on their public buildings, instead insisting the Scottish flag is flown. I would persuade Johan to remove the english flag on a.net and make all members use the Scottish flag instead. Passports would be changed to show nationality as "Scottish".

Then I would sit back and laugh at all the english moaning at the situation, and shout to them: "now you know how us bloody scots have felt for the last god knows how many years!!!!"

Meh... we had our fair share of dictatorships during the last century, dunno if it would be a good idea...

But if I were a dictator, first thing would be round up all the corrupt government officers (both current and former) and send 'em to jail. Force them to work cleaning the streets, picking up trash, or whatever labor is needed, until they repay the money they have stolen.

Actually this could get interesting... I'll get back with some more ideas. Big grin

If I were a dictator, I would have only 1 rule to follow, it is:

Keep everyone busy and happy.

Busy building infrastructure, keeping things clean, earning money, etc. Busy people usually dont agitate and try to create other activities to keep themselves 'busy'.

Happy by being able to live a comfortable life with most of your necessities taken care of.

If a dictator were to do this, and the population believed that their well-being is tied to their leader, that dictator would be sitting pretty for a long time.
