Down With the Dictator by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

Down With the Dictator by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.:

"Governments and their intellectual front men believe that nothing unites a population like a war.
Actually, that’s not quite true.

What happens is that during war, governments strike fear into their domestic opponents and silence them through intimidation. The appearance of unity is wholly illusory.

If you truly want to unite a population, here is a key: drive the dictator out of the country. The fleeing of a despot always leads to unparalleled and authentic celebration because the people perceive a new-found freedom.

In the street celebrations, dancing, enthusiasm, and optimism, we gain a glimpse of what freedom is all about. It is about removing the boot from the neck."
