👨‍👩‍👧‍👦Why Is It Easy to Intimidate Population?

Intimidation is a unique thing! It’s even easy to create fear in the hearts of millions of people by just a small section of people. Why? Just like in my country Uganda, millions of civilians have grown tired of dictatorship, but whenever they try to resist it, they are easily intimidated and sub into silence! We have many people in many countries living under similar situations all over the world. In some countries, uprisings have succeeded in removing dictators, but in many other countries citizens still live under this bondage. It’s still the case with my country Uganda. How is it there? Why is it easy for just a small section of dictators to defeat a big population?

Ex US president, Thomas Jefferson once said , ”The government you elect is the government you deserve.” French philosopher ,Joseph de Maistre; ”Every country has the government it deserves”.
People vote for their own personal or group interests rather than the interests of the society as a whole. That’s why they deserve what they get.

David, most people live under dictatorship especially in developing countries. They don’t choose these leaders, they just impose themselves on people, like in my country Uganda, a dictator has ruled for 35 years but he organises elections which he monitors, supervises and wins by landslide victories. In relation to your references above, I don’t think they apply in this situation but in my country. What do you think of this?

It is because a dictator often are supported by the military and the establishment in the country. All of them have economic advantages of their support.

Kenneth, did you like when your country Nigeria was ruled by dictators like General Saani Abacha, Ibrahim Babangida, and others? The whole world was crying for that country because of people’s suffering and death. This is exactly what’s happening here in my country Uganda, but the silencing machinery is very strong for the out side world to know and make any impact.

It’s easy to intimidate population due to fear of death and lack of political awareness.

I concur with you Steinar, the military machinery I prays a big role in suppression of the population.

Yes intimidation is usually done through violence and if people especially in African countries try and stand up they run the risk of being killed. This is how dictators operate especially Mugabe and the others that everyone else has mentioned above.

I tell you Edward it’s the reality that is happening here in my country. You know it’s elections time but we are counting dead bodies every day. The military vehicles running over the opposition supporters is common thing, live bullets are fired opposition replies, it’s a thin line between death and survival here. One has to count the day.
