    Well me me see:
    1- Ahoka, Khosrow, Frederick the Great, Abdullah II were monarchs, not dictators. DUH!

    2- Ataturk didn´t seem “benevolent” when he massacred kurdish rebels, nor when he massacred the greeks during Izmirna Burning. Not to mention, he conquered brutally Armenia, which was independent a few years ago, after survinving the Genocide made by turks. Genocide denied by Ataturk.
    But the moron who wrote this article, praised him for fighting armenians. Which is as noble as germans fighting jewish survivors of Holocaust.

    3 -MacArthur wasn´t a dictator. He represented USA government. And he was very benevolent to fascist japanese war criminals he released. Like the scientists from Unity 731.

    The guy who wrote this needs to find another job.

      Besides, he is a retard: “there’s nothing inherently wrong with dictatorships – in fact many will suggest that the best political system, for everyone, is a dictatorship.”

        Are you saying there is something inherently wrong with dictatorships? I bet you love democracy too you capitalist pig.

          Are you a troll or are you really the loser who wrote this waste of space?

      (From the author)
      1. A dictator is defined as a ruler who wields absolute authority – monarchs can be (but are not necessarily) dictators, you f***ing idiot.

      2. I’ve forgotten who ataturk is and i can’t be bothered re-reading this

      3. As acknowledged in the article, MacArthur was indeed not technically a dictator – however he wielded effectively absolute authority for a number of years (see again the definition above).

      Plus, I got payed 2 large for this and you didn’t, so who’s the real moron? Moron. I think I’ll keep my job thanks.

    #3 MacArthur is the biggest surprise in this list, nor for how much he was benevolent, bur for how unlikely anyone would call him a “dictator”.

    No government can ever be benevolent, but the biggest problem here is Ataturk. He killed over a million people!

    That is the way to go especially countries in Africa.

    MacArthur was not so benevolent when it came to the Korean War. His policies would have let to disaster if they had been carried out.

    I would have added Alexander II who, while not perfect, really did try to be benevolent. He liberated the serfs, and he would have gone much further if he hadn’t been assassinated.
