The answer to false democracy is true monarchy by whateverman32 The answer to false democracy is true monarchy by whateverman32
Trigger warning: This is simply my opinion on quotes such as "The answer to 1984 is 1776" or "The answer to 1984 is 1933"

A little history lesson for those going "What?", the Osman Ghazi founded the Ottoman state in 1299, it was pretty strong until Temur showed up during the 1402 Battle of Ankara between Ottoman Empire and the Timurid Empire, in which it was weakened to hold any authority at Anatolia, Then the Mehmed II conquered Constantinople and ended the Byzantines in 1453 and the State officialy became an Empire. İt held over 19 million square meters of land by 1595. İt was distablished in 1923 with the declaration of the Republic of Turkey, the Caliphate stayed for another year before it was officialy removed from the Turkish Constitution, along with the "The religion of Turkey is İslam." Mustafa Kemal Atatürk changed the old alphabet that the Turks were using for over a millenium and rendered many wise man (doctors, engineers etc.) ignorant by one night.

Yes, İ'm an Ottomanist, İ'm also pretty critical of the government at the moment, İ believe in limited taxing and limited government and limited gun control. Pretty much the nightmare of the Left.

I've read a bit more about the Ottoman Empire and i've come to the conclusion that an Autocracy is not A better alternative to a totalitarian dictatorship. Even if you were to find a nearly perfect person a Morally just leader eventually he would be corrupted or his descendants would become spoiled tyrants Power corrupts people this is why it should be Decentralize.

In the words of George Washington:

-"Government is like fire, a dangerous servant and a fearful master"-
