DEMOCRACY AND DICTATORSHIP
One should distinguish
Between a dictatorial democracy,
Or a democracy imposed upon the people
And run on a totalitarian basis,
And a democratic dictatorship,
Or a dictatorship that is voted into power
By popular consent.
Dictatorial democracy pertains to right-wing communism,
Democratic dictatorship to left-wing fascism,
The difference, traditionally, between
Soviet Communism and National Socialism.
But neither of these should be confounded
With a dictatorship, purely and simply,
That is imposed upon the people without their consent.
Such dictatorships aren't fascist but military,
And thus a form of attenuated autocracy,
Beneath the pale of a genuine ideology.
Whatever one may think of Nazism,
It was no military dictatorship,
But a democratic dictatorship
Established by popular consent.
And the same should apply to the future attainment
Of Social Transcendentalism to power
countries, hopefully, like
Except that, unlike Nazism, the ideology
Of what is potentially a true world (global) religion
Would only be dictatorial to the extent
That its leader - recognized in advance as
The most genuine approximation to the Second Coming
And duly granted the freedom to utilize the State
For theocratic ends - was bearing such 'sins of the world'
As the electorate had fobbed-off onto him
In return for religious sovereignty, and hence
The right to spiritual self-realization
In what would effectively become,
Under Social Transcendentalist auspices,
For so long by the faithful in hope of the Resurrection
And its promise of Eternal Life - the life of the spirit
Granted maximum emphasis and longevity
Through the brain's ultimately being artificially supported
And no-less artificially sustained in the collectivized
Contexts of a post-Human Millennium.
