Initiatives v Oligarchy

Our Founders' Warning: “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.” (Thomas Jefferson)


“A dictatorship is an authoritarian form of government, characterized by a single leader or group of leaders [oligarchs] with either no party or a weak party, little mass mobilization, and limited political pluralism.… Dictatorship and totalitarian societies generally employ political propaganda to decrease the influence of proponents of alternative governing systems.” (Courtesy © Wikipedia)
