A government system that combines elements of both a dictatorship and a monarchy is known as an absolute monarchy. In an absolute monarchy, the king or queen holds complete authority and has absolute power over the government and the people.

Why you are in favor of democracy and against dictatorship?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I am in favor of democracy because it provides equal rights and opportunities for all citizens, encourages participation and representation, and promotes accountability and transparency in government. Dictatorships, on the other hand, concentrate power in the hands of a few, suppress individual freedoms, and often lead to corruption, human rights abuses, and lack of progress. Democracy allows for the peaceful transfer of power and respects the will of the people, making it a better system for fostering stability and prosperity.

How are peoples views taken into account in dictatorship?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

That's the whole point of a dictatorship. Peoples views are NOT taken into account. The dictator dictates the laws they he/she wants. End of story!!!!

In dictatorships the press is often silenced, or only allowed to publish what the dictator wants the public to read. People who try and publish other material are 'shut-down' and/or locked up.

Conversely, the word 'democracy' has it roots in Classical Greece, and means the 'rule or will of the people', ; 'Demos', people and 'Cratos' to rule. Peoples opinions and views are taken into account and the press can publish freely any material its likes. Hence the political leaders of a democratic nation have to make laws that reflect these views and opinions. People are not silenced.

Was a pharaoh an absolute monarch or dictator?

Asked by Wiki User

Absolute monarchy. A dictatorship implies a republican form of government where the leader rules as a "first citizen", whereas in a monarchy, the ruler is a sovereign who embodies the state. Pharaohs fit the latter.

Was Castro a good dictator for Cuba?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Fulgencio Batista rose to power in a coup, and cultivated the friendship of Meyer Lansky, a mobster from America. Under him, the ownership of land in Cuba shifted to non-Cubans, particularly Lansky's "friends" in the casino business. Most of the farm land was under the control of American corporations interested in cheap sugar. Batista was corrupt and corporate greed fed that corruption.

So, at least in the opinion of most historians, the answer is no. Batista was not a good ruler for Cuba.

What factors enabled dictators like Hitler and Mussolini to gain control over Germany and Italy?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A dictatorship can only be formed in a democratic country when there are severe problems that seem unsolvable. Here is what Benito Mussolini and his fascists took advantage of in order to gain power in Italy:

A. After World War One, Italy found itself in economic distress. Its already low standards of living declined further;

B. Ruinous inflation drove the prices of goods extremely high;

C. Taxes were applied to help pay for the costs of WW1;

D. There was a fear of Communism in Italy; and

E. The Italian government was weak. There was a lack of a democratic tradition in Italy.

Mussolini's fascists promised to solve all these problems, and by appealing to the peoples' desire for self esteem through nationalism, the fascists were able to gain control of Italy.
