Anarchy Or Dictatorship?
April 2, 2011
That’s a simple question for me!
If there’s anything that I learned from my college political science classes it was that dictatorships can be benevolent or malevolent whereas all anarchies are unending chaos and violent. In a dictatorship there’s one enemy and you know who he is. In an anarchy, there’s many enemies and you have no clue as to who they all are.
We’re seeing this played out in the Middle East- BIG TME.
Who was throwing rocks at whom in Egypt?
Who are the rebels in Libya? Who does one pay taxes and homage to in Eastern Libya? Everyone knows Qadaffi and they also know how to appease him; however, how does one appease many differing groups of rebels?
The loosely organized rebel force had been acting in a more disciplined fashion in recent days, but what uniform are they wearing and is it any wonder that NATO accidently bombed and killed a dozen or so very recently? The Middle East is being transformed over night. Long standing dictatorships are being overthrown in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and other nations; however, think not that DEMOCRACY is on the rise.
What we’re seeing is a rise in ANARCHY!
