    Please take time and ponder a little some of these famous quotes about dictatorship...happy reading!

    Adolph Hitler: All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.

    Alan Bullock: Hitler's dictatorship rested on the constitutional foundation of a single law, the enabling law (similar to hapa kazi tu)

    Benito Mussolini: Yes, a dictator can be loved provided the masses fear him. You see, the masses are like a woman; they like strong men.

    Herbert Hoover: It is a paradox that every dictator has climbed to power on the ladder of free speech. Immediately on attaining power each dictator has suppressed all free speech except his own.

    Bertrand Russell: In Democracy the fools have a right to vote. In dictatorship the fools have a right to rule.

    Bruce Coville: Withholding information is the essence of tyranny. Controlling the flow of information is the tool of dictatorship

    Mao Zedong: All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The Communist party must therefore command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.

    George Orwell: One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution, one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship.

    We must never forget that every dictator is an enemy of freedom and an opponent of Law. As Tanzanians, do we realize the kind of monster we are creating and is there anything we can learn from these quotes?

    Herbert Hoover and Bruce Coville say it all

    A year ago they were out there organizing rally and exercising free speech

    Ten months later, they withhold and control the flow of info, impose sanction to the media and go after free speech everywhere.

    I want to be feared as a tyrant, loved as a father, revered as a god but I also want them to think I'm funny!​

    To be successful as a dictator you must first love yourself
    and then force everyone to fear you,
    that way all will love you.
