No dictator, no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. J. Michael Straczynski
A new breeze is blowing, and a world refreshed by freedom seems reborn; for in man's heart, if not in fact, the day of the dictator is over. The totalitarian era is passing, its old ideas blown away like leaves from an ancient, lifeless tree. George H. W. Bush
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. Herbert Hoover
You can't become a dictator through checks and balances. Tommy Chong
Sometimes it's better to have a benign dictator than a dumb democracy, to be honest. Serj Tankian
