America A Dictatorship

Satisfactory Essays
A dictatorship is a form of government in which power is concentrated to one individual or a group of individuals rather than the people at large.

I would describe America as a democratic dictatorship. This is an odd phrase, but I submit that Americans democratically choose who will rule as a dictator over them. The fact is, Americans have little say in the affairs of the government. Politics have become closed-door affairs in which corporations strong arm men and women in government who are prone to manipulation in order to increase revenue and power.

America is becoming more and more dictatorial because the power of rule is slowly transitioning from the people to the government. As Lord Action said, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely".
