Dictators are usually whiny little babies, which is part of how dictators always catch us all guard. Look at the silly man-baby fascist, the adult who cosplays as a military general, the supposedly genius businessman addicted to posting. Oh, look at you, all violence and power and intimidation, soooo cool. 

The bummer thing is, dictators don't need people to like them to thrive. People don't need to hear King Jong il played 18, shot 18. Dictators just take power and spend their time making life miserable for the rest of us, which is why it takes courage to stand up to oppression. And why we celebrate the heroes who fight dictators, no matter what form that takes.
