How to Succeed as Dictator
John J. Mulhall
The Dictator holds both a fascination and a revulsion for humanity. He - and the dictator must be male - commands a place in society that few democratically elected leaders can attain. He gets his picture on the front pages of influential magazines. He can murder his own people and get away with the crime. He can enrich himself on the backs of his people, and not only get away with the theft, but find that they turn a blind eye to the wholesale looting of their country. This book provides some useful tips for the man who aspires to the top job that rewards like no other. It outlines how to overthrow an empire by the use of religion. The work also demonstrates how to undermine a democracy and replace it with a dictatorship. It illustrates how the correct title should be used to get the masses on board. It offers tips on the retention of power for life, and the mistakes to avoid in that permanent role. Most importantly, the guide proves that men are led by words, but governed by ideology. Rule of the people is not based on the actualities of power, but rather on its perception. The Dictator who can convince the people that they are living in a paradise fit for heroes can look forward to a happy life at the top, and dying peacefully in his bed. The Dictator will always be with us because he is part of our past, our present, and our future. He is part of us because he represents human nature. The Dictator is the dark half of the human psyche. John Rainsford.
