Talk:benevolent dictator

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Currently the definition is "A dictator that has power only because the people choose to allow them to. They must make wise use of power since the benevolent dictatorship system allows them to be peaceably kicked out of office. " I think the wikipedia definition is more accurate: "an undemocratic or authoritarian leader who exercises his or her political power for the benefit of the people rather than exclusively for his or her own self-interest or benefit, or for the benefit of only a small portion of the people" Kappa 22:11, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
