Still a dictatorship


A dictatorship will always be a dictatorship, no matter what label you slap on it.
China, North Korea, Cuba, Saudi and so on.

Here’s the definition.

Dictatorship is a form of government where political authority is monopolized by a person or political entity, and exercised through various mechanisms to ensure the entities power remains strong

So… how about the Vatican City State?

  1. I don’t think anyone would disagree that the Church is a law unto itself. Its policies on marriage, divorce, birth control among others are dictated to the faithful. Not that many people adhere to the rules in private but since the edicts are not enforceable by law, it waters down the dictatorship powers to a large extent.

  2. Yes, the philosophy of word games cannot redefine the absolute oppression that exists within dictatorships.

    You can try to paint the blood green to match the grass, you can plant flowers over the mass graves, in attempts to normalize your lives. You can even try to find success between poverty and lavish wealth, but you will never find a just decree or have a moment without fear under a dictatorship.

    Why people find these attributes acceptable in a religion is but one of many things that leave me regularly befuddled.

    I love that cartoon!
