What Would You Do If You Were A Dictator?

Fri Sep 22, 2006 3:58 am

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".

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

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.

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, 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.

Make everyone live with someone who is idealogically opposed to them (un armed) for a year, their first year out of college.

1) Sell the North Island except for Taranaki (which would be gracefully saved for its oil and gas) to the highest bidder. Proceeding the sales Beneficiaries and criminals would be compulsorily deported from the South Island and Taranaki to rest of the North Island.

2) Establish myself as dictator with the formal title: "Supreme and most highly esteemed, extraordinarily great, dear and special leader" (just to make Kim Jong Il fell inferior).

3) Ban the abbreviations of my formal title and make it compulsory before my name in all media publication.

4) Exit that treaty that says we can not look for minerals in our Antarctic territory and look for stuff that can make me rich.

5) With all the money build a massive palace which can be seen with the naked eye from the international space station.

6) Take control of TV, radio, internet and all other media which would then cover mythical stories of my childhood story claiming that I invented everything of use and was superhuman. Build a large complex to censor everything and ban critical literature from offshore.

8) Exit that treaty that says we can not look for minerals in our Antarctic territory and look for stuff that can make me rich.

9) Build a nuclear power plant underground in secret to build nuclear weapons.

9) Perform a surprise nuclear test in international waters in the North Atlantic as close to the coast of France as possible. Hold loud government sponsored public celebrations in the streets for a week afterwards.

10) Oh yeah, and buy myself lot and lots of private jets (A380s, 747s, 777s, A340, A330, 767) and spend trillions of dollars developing a private large supersonic jet (at least the size of the Concorde) for my private use.

Well, I'd begin turning this country into the world's first gay country.

Straight people would lose the right to concieve children and get married. Mass deportations of breeders will occur.

Also, everyone must wear good looking clothes. Wearing a track suit in public would be forbidden.

I would ban religion, and introduce a combination of beer-drinking and knitting to keep people occupied.

The role of the military would be reduced to exotic dancing. With poles.

The national sports would be male figure-skating and diving.

Police sirens will be replaced with Erasure - Give A Little Respect.

That's all I can think of for now...

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

I'd buy myself a 707, DC-8, a 747 and build an airport in my garden, whatever space it would take. And desctructions.  Silly

Then I'd get some assistants to make the country better, while I have a good time learning how to fly these beasts  Wink
It's not about AIRBUS. it's not about BOEING. It's all about the beauty of FLYING.

I thought all the statues in N Korea were of his father

Hmmm, the main one which the tourists see is of his father, but I'm sure he's got some.

I would kick everyone out of the state of Colorado and make it my personal property, with my log cabin near the entrance to Cheyenne Mountain.

I would ban the practice of collecting interest on borrowed money.

Everyone would be guaranteed a certain level of living standards through programs like public housing, food stamps, etc.. But if you want to have that beach house in Florida, you must earn it with lots of hard work!

Everyone finishing high-school will be required to tour third-world countries for a year so they can understand how well they have it at home.

Flat tax on all income, no deductions.

Create a large "think group" to study how to keep the environment healthy, without significant economic impacts.

This would seem to imply that people wish to travel to either. Or even know where they are...

If I were to become a dictator tomorrow???

1. Dissolve the parliament and call in new parliamentary elections as the current parliament is known not to pass laws unless someone buys them a luxury car!

2. Get a military squad to take in reports of corruption and corruptable obstacles by Civil Servants. Those suspected would be tried under a military tribunal, which is allowed under certain provisions of the constitution which cites "Figures of Civil Government in the Provincial and lower levels, as well as government departments can be militarized or act as an extension of the military in states of emergency" (Well, I've only been told this)... And I'll address the nation that "Excessive Corruption and Obstacles caused by Corrupt government officials have resulted in having to declare a state of credibility crisis/emergency".

3. Privatize electricity generation (though distribution to household should still be nationalised) thanks to all the mess the national electricity board is making. (Telecoms already privatized).

4. Provide incentives for setting up power generation in remote areas.

5. Privatize the Rail Sector, provide incentive for new rail lines.

6. Privatize the airports.

7. Massive shake up of the Department of Public Works (#3 most corrupt department according to some polls).

8. Embark to make a comprehensive highway network around the big islands... this would lower the sensitivity of the economy to fuel price believe it or not... as the extra benefits of faster roal transport would dramatically improve the country's logisitics.

9. Dissolve the Ministry of Religious affairs (reported as #1 most corrupt department), and also the National Ulama Council (again, inept and totally out of touch with the current issues), and replace both with a special government agency which is much streamlined to handle both.

10. Taking JGPH1A's idea, Compulsory Service for 12 months for 18 - 24 yr old, military or civilian service by choice... this is to support #2 above.

11. Take out three zeroes out of my currency, it'll save a lot for the economy! LOL

12. Force the National Statistics Agency and the National Economics Agency to issue "Costs to the economy" on almost every single complaint we hear... eg: Traffic jams, legal uncertainty, etc etc... But make them work out the benefit to the economy in terms of tax revenues if these problems are solved. This is to encourage civil servants to think objectively in their work instead of being an obstacle to progress unless we shove them brown envelopes.

13. I would demand legal immunity from any prosecution during my position as Supreme Dictator.

14. Step down before I become senile.

15. Oh yeah, forgot, release a fabricated video of Carmenlu15 & Cedars whipping each other! LOL

16. Wake up and go back to reality! LOL
