Good dictator is better than a bad democratic setup

Look to Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore to see an effective modern dictator. He oversaw the transformation of Singapore from a 3rd world backwater to a 1st world economic powerhouse in the span of a single generation.

Critics claim that LKY abused the legal system, and he is known for his favorite technique of squashing dissenting people and organizations by suing them into bankruptcy. Yew also initiated a population control program aimed at reducing the pressures of providing for a growing population. The program sought to encourage couples to 'stop after two' children through rebates and other economic and social incentives. Corporal punishment in the form of caning for a wide range of offenses is another criticism of his regime.

Yew's accomplishments include attracting foreign direct investment in Singapore, and encouraging multi national manufacturers to set up shop in country. This brought a rising standard of living to the people of Singapore, low unemployment and a reputation as one of the worlds finest workshops.

Take a look at Tito Josip Broz. He was an ex Yugoslavian benevolent dictator and still today admired and loved by many.

Was he really popular? Serious, genuine question. As a person from post-socialist country I can hardly imagine someone truly like od admire a communist. How it is a different story? I know that Yugoslavia can hardly be considered a part of soviet block, and no true tights with USRR, but why was he popular and loved?

Since it was not part of the soviet bloc, Yugoslavia had some more laissez-faire attitudes towards western ideals. But in the long run many despise him for technically setting the country up to fail (encouraging Albanian immigration, greater autonomy for Kosovo and Vojvodina) , but he did rule with an iron fist keeping a lot of groups that would otherwise be at each others throats separate and controlled. From personal experience, many of my relatives are not too fond of him. But he is still revered by the odd balkanise.

Cincinnatus was a famous one, although he was granted the role not once, but twice. He completed the job he was employed as dictator to do, and then he gave up power and went back to his farm as soon as he was done. Sounds like a top bloke and well worth reading about.
