If libertarians believe dictatorship is fundamentally flawed how do you explain the economic and military success of many dictatorships?
Wouldn’t a state where the government has a unified vision not spoiled by constant elections, and where policy is rolled out without constant bickering produce superior results over a democracy where politicians can’t do anything because of legal constraints(constitution) and never ending debate?
I remember I saw some answer on Quora on how a fascist(not a fascist myself) state would be better than a democracy, basically it boiled down to these points:
A single party will have an easier time improving lives than a system to several parties always arguing.
No multi party elections mean politicians can focus on stuff that matters.
State surveillance would drastically bring down crime rates because everyone is being watched.
Censoring news prevents moral corruption.
An economic system where state, companies, and labor work in tandem works better than a system where the three groups are against each other as in capitalism.
Not to mention the successes achieved in places like the USSR, modern Russia, china, imperial Japan and so forth.
How does a libertarian respond to this?
