Democracy is globally preferred due to the dangers of concentrated power in one person's hands, as seen throughout history. Dictators often exploit chaos, manipulating situations during desperate times and suppressing opposition through violence. They commit atrocities, including massacres and genocide, claiming ethnic cleansing.
Enduring life under a tyrannical dictatorship extinguishes hope and fuels the flames of rebellion. The oppressed often find the strength to rise up, overthrowing their oppressors and, at times, seeking retribution by sacrificing their own lives.
Explore the gallery below to witness the downfall and execution of some of history's most notorious dictators.
