"Can't do it without us donate today because where there's a wide enough so I never said Why, for better us? She's got those temple. It's that she wears all the time sunglasses. I was just commenting. I thought this is a pretty good article here from how stuff works. Yeah. Yeah, I've heard that before, but this one Do you have that on there? I always have it on there. He didn't have it today. It might be a Shane A Freeman joint. I think it may be That sounds familiar. Yeah, Anyway, it's a good one. Yeah. And here it is. That was That was word for word. My intro that you just stole. Well, my mind reading classes have been paying off. Chuck? Yes. Have you ever lived under a dictatorship? Ah, not exactly. No. No, I haven't either. And I think we should kind of consider ourselves fairly lucky. Sure, because it turns out that Not only were we born in a country that most people would argue is not a dictatorship. Although you can find plenty of websites that argue that it it is he has been for the last several years, possibly even For the most part, most people would say it's not a dictatorship. So we're lucky to be born in a country that isn't a dictatorship, but not only that we're lucky to be born in a time when Dictatorships Have become fairly hard tto Find, comparatively speaking. Because Dictatorships were basically the way that people were ruled for thousands of years up until very recent times around the time of the enlightenment when the idea of Individual liberties and the protection of those into individual liberties became kind of widespread. Yeah, and this article kind of starts off. I thought it was So it's interesting that you don't often Well, First of all, the word dictator is just one like the one who dictates the thing. It's kind of funny when you break down the actual definition. Oh, well, yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Then it's the guy who paces back and forth in front of the desk or somebody's typing or anything. Take dictation. Ah, but they don't call themselves that very often, although it has happened. Before we get into the history. It's we should point out that like Castro and Saddam Hussein, you never hear them say dictator. As a bad rap, You know, I'm the dictator Fidel Castro. Yeah, it's like how propaganda get turned into PR. Yeah, that will call themselves premier or president or chancellor. Or if your boss of you Kim Kim Jong Il holds three titles and he's looking for 1/4 and fifth like as we speak while he's in the ground, his son Oh, wait. I got this too confused right? Well, he held three titles. Yes, he did. And imagine while his son probably holds for then he probably found that fourth just made one up. Did you know that there's like, you know the Kim Jeong Eun is ah, the supreme leader of North Korea, But he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well. They have basically a triumvirate going there. It was news to me. Yeah, Those guys were called. Keep quiet One and keep quiet, too. Yeah, I was just looking up some of his greatest hits recently and Kim Jeong Eun alone has already started to amass several, but one was AH, North Korean leader Pretty high ranking official was executed with an anti aircraft machine gun for slouching or falling asleep at AA. Ah, meeting Holy cow, right, But the years suddenly imagine what that would do to a body. Yeah. Oh, my God. But you should. You should take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt, especially when it's coming out of North Korea because we have really virtually No idea what's going on today. Over there big events like that. Even if it is true that that guy was executed with an anti aircraft gun, whether or not it was for falling asleep during and write a meeting or something like that remains to be seen. Yeah, you're saying Take any information with a grain of salt? Yes, Yes, that's good Advice. Thanks. Ah. But a cz Shana, I believe Shania points out that the Dictators do have some things in common. One of the big ones is Is almost 100% of the time. A dictator doesn't come to power through an election. They're usually not freely elected to that position. No, but they have been They have been. Yeah, pretty prominently like Hitler. Yeah, he wasn't elected that wouldn't he named Chancellor? Yes, by the elected president, though. Right, but he still wasn't elected. Now. I guess that's true. Fine. Well, let's get into history then. All right. So you say Dick dictators got Abed. It's gotten a bad rap over the years, right? As far as calling yourself that, I think so, but it it officially originally and I couldn't. I saw a couple references degrees, but it seems to be Rome Classic Room Classic room. Yeah, it chips coming into the party and everybody's like that's classic room. He tried to walk through that screen door open, so classical Rome. How about that? It seems to be an invention of classical Rome, right? There is a station called Dictator. There's an office basically in an ancient room. The leadership was held by two men called councils, and they were equally powerful. From what I understand consuls. Council console. Okay, sure. And when something went down and stuff hit the fan, the Romans had a tradition of appointing one of the council's Ah, Dictator. Yeah, which is basically an emergency investment of Unparalleled power into this one person in the whole thinking behind. It was When you were faced with an emergency when the state was faced with an emergency. You needed somebody who could basically get stuff done like a single voice. Yeah, didn't have to go to the Senate to ask anything didn't have to go worry about making the wrong move. The dictator couldn't be held. Criminally liable for their decisions. Yeah, didn't have to worry about not being invited to the other consuls Christmas party the next year, right? The other council wanted to be invited to the dictator's Christmas party. So there was an investment of these emergency powers in this one person, And usually I saw one year this article says that lasted for six months. And then the dictator would be like, Well, that was a wild ride. I'm going back to my normal life. The rebellion has been quelled or the siege is over. Something like that. Yeah, And interestingly there are a few rules they couldn't be held legally responsible for their actions. Big one. Ah, it says couldn't be an office longer than six months. Although I think is I think they were there to handle. The situation is kind of long as that took Yeah, For the most part, But there were also guys here like Whoa. Like few of this. Yeah, I'm not giving this up. And they'll say, Well, you have to we say, And then they said, Well, I'm the dictator. We hadn't thought this all the way through. Yeah, That's true. They could change Roman law in the Constitution. They couldn't use public money unless other than what the Senate said you could use it for so they supposedly still and these are the official rules. You know, as we see coming up here People bent these rules on they couldn't leave. Italy was the last one. This is a good one. And they would have like Columbo come in and deliver that last bit. We look, just don't leave in Italy for a while. Okay, that you're Columbo impression. He sounded just like Josh. Eso. This kind of happened here and there until about 202 BC, and then about 100 years after that, a gentleman named Lucius Cornelius Sulla. I love all these Roman dictator sound like either seventies like blaxploitation movie stars or Roman Gladiators s O. He was appointed dictator without a term limit. I didn't have these restrictions. And so this Sort of changed the game from here on out..

popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go look for that I'm gonna call myself emperor they said okay to pull you in what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to it and then that wouldn't affect so he's likely to shorten like you said though he was super popular because he was he was undefeated as a military leader he balanced the budget he reformed government he wrote the civil law which a lot of his is still around today in France yes of the law right not too bad you have a lasting impact for sure he did it again and again in two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write thrown out of one of

historians consider Napoleon the first modern dictator yeah he checked basically every box there was he had it figured out your new boxes and check those right he said all the caters to follow here's your boxes I just looked down in your notes and I want to show you something I think we should take a break but before then okay truck I think you should see this yes so in this article on dictators

off Chuck yes you ever lived under a dictatorship not exactly no no I haven't either yeah and I think we should kind of cancer cells fairly lucky sure because it turns out that not only were we born in a country that most people would argue is not a dictatorship although you can find plenty of websites that argue that it yes it is he has been for the last several years possibly even for the most part most people would say it's not a dictatorship so we're lucky to be born in a country that isn't a dictatorship but not only that we're lucky to be born in a time when dictatorships have become fairly hard to find comparatively speaking because dictatorships were basically the way that people were ruled for thousands of years now up until very recent times around the time of the enlightenment when the idea of individual liberties and the protection of those into individual liberties became kind of widespread yeah and now this article kind of starts off I thought it was that was interesting that you don't often well first of all the word dictator is just one like the one who dictates the thing it's kind of funny when you break down the actual definition yeah yeah that makes a lot of sense that it's the guy who paces back and forth in front of the desk with somebody's typing or anything take dictation yeah but they don't call themselves that very often although it has happened before we get into the history it's it's we should point out that like Castro and Saddam Hussein you never hear them say I'm dictator as a bad rap you know on the dictator Fidel Castro yeah it's like propaganda got turned into PR yeah that will call themselves premier or president or chancellor or fewer boss of you Kim Kim Jong il holds three titles and he's looking for a fourth and fifth mmhm like as we speak well he's in the ground his son oh wait I got this to confuse right yeah well he held three titles yes he did and imagine Wilson probably holds for than he probably found that fourth just made one up did you know that there's like a I I you know the Kim Jong moon is the supreme leader of North Korea but he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well they have basically triumvirate going there it was news to me yeah those guys are called keep quiet one and keep quiet to I was just looking up some of his greatest hits recently yeah and Kim Jong moon alone has already started to amass several but one was a north Korean leader a pretty high ranking official was executed with an anti aircraft machine gun for slouching or falling asleep at a at a meeting holy cow right but you're certainly imagine what that would do to a body yeah my god but you should you should take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt especially when it's coming out of North Korea because we have really virtually no idea what's going on here today over their big events like that even if it is true that that guy was executed with an anti aircraft gun whether or not it was for falling asleep during an ad right at a meeting or something like that remains to be seen yeah you're saying take any information with a grain of salt yes yes good advice thanks but as Shayna I believe Shayna points out that the dictators do have some things in common one of the big ones is is almost a hundred percent of the time a dictator doesn't come to power through it an election they're usually not freely elected to that position no but they have been they have been yeah pretty prominently like Hitler you know he was elected when he named chancellor for yes by the elected president though right but he still wasn't elected no I guess that's true five let's get into history then all right please say deck dictators got a bad because it's got a bad rap over the years right as far as calling yourself that I think so but it it officially originally and I couldn't I saw a couple references to Greece but it seems to be Rome classic room classic room it chips coming into the party and everybody's like that's a classic room he tried to walk through that screen door open so classical road how about that it seems to be an invention of classical Rome right M. there is a station called dictator there's an office basically in in ancient Rome did the leadership was held by two men called councils yeah and they were equally powerful from what I understand consuls council consul okay sure and when something went down and stuff hit the fan the Romans had a tradition of appointing one of the council's dictator yes which is basically an emergency investment of our unparalleled power into this one person in the whole thinking behind it was it when you were faced with an emergency when the state was faced with an emergency you need somebody who can basically get stuff done yeah like a single voice yeah it didn't have to go to the Senate to ask anything didn't have to go worry about making the wrong move the dictator couldn't be held the criminally liable for their decisions yeah didn't have to worry about not being invited to the other consoles Christmas party the next year right the other council wanted to be invited to the dictators Christmas part throughout it so you there was an investment of these emergency powers is one person in usually I saw one year this article says it lasted for six months and then the dictator be like well that was a wild ride I'm going back to my normal life the rebellion has been quelled or the sieges over something like that yeah and interestingly there are a few rules they couldn't be held legally responsible for their actions right big one it says couldn't be in office longer than six months although I think is I think they were there to handle the situation is kind of a long as it took yeah for the most part but there were also guys who like woo I like the feel of this here I'm not giving this up and they'll say well you have to we say in the navy said while I'm the dictator they said we hadn't thought this all the way through yeah Mr yeah they could change Roman law in the constitution they couldn't use public money unless other than what the Senate said you could use it for so they supposedly still and these are the official rules you know as we see coming up here people bet these roles and they couldn't leave Italy was the last one it's a good one and they would have like Colombo come in and deliver that last bit we look just don't even Italy for a while okay that your Colombo impression he sounded just like just Guardado's spot so this kind of happened here in there until about two oh two BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some like either seventies like blaxploitation movie scorers or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit in didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and he actually wanted Caesar dead the Caesar ran off and joined the army Julius Caesar I should say and no and just basically laid low until sela died and then Caesar came back him he was appointed counsel and then dictator himself he succeeded sela right yes and Caesar is very well known to be a dictator but he actually if you look at the stuff he did he was a friend of the people he forgave the debts among the benevolent dictator pretty much yeah among the middle and lower classes he improved infrastructure he I am he basically went to bat for the lower classes which threaten the elite because he it made him immensely popular plus he was a dictator so he actually created it he states to Q. three to become a dictator right to gain power yeah which we'll talk about a little more and then it a coup was plotted against him and he was assassinated by the ruling elite of the Senate on my birthday yeah well long time before my birthday you know what I mean back in nineteen seventy one yeah we I mean we tossed out benevolent dictator couple times getting around but that's a real term that generally means a dictator who for the most part isn't just in it for themselves and they are trying to make things better for the people right but it depends on your perspective yeah exactly so like the ruling elite found him very threatening and they would not have considered a benevolent at all right but like say the average plebeian would have been like I love Caesar yeah give me some more of the coins with his face on it yeah I mean followers of Castro still after his death say he was a benevolent dictator sure but again people say now it's perspective yes the subjective term basically a Napoleon actually he came to power again like many dictators in a state of emergency and he was actually a benevolent dictator in a sense because he he did a lot of great things for awhile for the people right he was extremely popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go for that I'm going to call myself emperor they said okay to pull you in what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to it and then that wouldn't enough right so he's likely to shorten like you said though he was super popular because he was he was undefeated as a military leader he balanced the budget he reform government he wrote the civil law which a lot of it is still around today in France yes of the law right not too bad he had a lasting impact for sure he did it again and again two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write their own out of one of the windows of the parliament Rainey took over you probably wouldn't be like yourself right he also control had an iron thumb on the press he controlled every facet of government he added spies working for him right so it's not like and he wasn't just a you know Bozo the clown now both because of the cloud of secrecy no if you put all that together they check you get the impression of Y. by historians consider Napoleon the first modern dictator yeah he checked basically every box there was he had it figured out your new boxes and check those right he said all the caters to follow your boxes I just looked down in your notes and I want to show you something I think we should take a break but before then okay trucking I think you should see this yes so in this article on dictators from howstuffworks there's a side bar is what they're called in web print parlance yes a little extra bit and it the title of the sub bars dark dictator that's all we need is a and it talks about emperor Palpatine in his rise and Chuck had his ex doubt it and I independently right out as well so we will be talking about that today everybody now but let's do take that break in will discuss that private so you don't get to know about it we'll be right back the

found that fourth just made one up did you know that there's like a I I you know the Kim Jong moon is the supreme leader of North Korea but he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well they have basically triumvirate going there it was news to me yeah those guys are called keep quiet one and keep quiet to I was just looking up some of his greatest hits recently yeah and Kim Jong moon alone is already started to amass several but one was a north Korean leader a pretty high ranking official was executed with an anti aircraft machine gun for slouching or falling asleep at a at a meeting holy cow right but you're certainly imagine what that would do a body yeah thank god for you should you should take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt especially when it's coming out of North Korea because we have really virtually no idea what's going on here today over their big events like that even if it is true that that guy was executed with an anti aircraft gun whether or not it was for falling asleep during an end right at a meeting or something like that remains to be seen yeah you're saying take any information with a grain of salt yes yes good advice thanks but as Shayna I believe Shayna points out that the dictators do have some things in common one of the big ones is is almost a hundred percent of the time a dictator doesn't come to power through it an election they're usually not freely elected to that position no but they have been they have been yeah pretty prominently like Hitler you know he was elected there when he named chancellor sh yes by the elected president though right but he still wasn't elected no I guess that's true thank fine let's get into history then all right please say deck dictators got a bad because it's gotten a bad rap over the years right as far as calling yourself that I think so but it it officially originally and I couldn't I saw a couple references to Greece but it seems to be Rome classic room classic room it chips coming into the party and everybody's like that's a classic room I tried to walk to that screen door open so classical Rome how about that it seems to be an invention of classical Rome right I'm there is a station called dictator there's an office basically in in ancient Rome did the leadership was held by two men called councils yeah and they were equally powerful from what I understand consuls council consul okay sure right I'm M. when something went down and stuff hit the fan the Romans had a tradition of appointing one of the council's dictator yes which is basically an emergency investment of unparalleled power into this one person in the whole thinking behind it was it when you were faced with an emergency when the state was faced with an emergency you need somebody who can basically get stuff done yeah like a single voice yeah it didn't have to go to the Senate to ask anything didn't have to go worry about making the wrong moves the dictator couldn't be held a criminally liable for their decisions yeah I didn't have to worry about not being invited to the other consoles Christmas party the next year right the other council wanted to be invited to the dictators Christmas party yeah it's so you there was an investment of these emergency powers this one person and usually I saw one year this article says it lasted for six months and then the dictator be like well that was a wild ride I'm going back to my normal life the rebellion has been quelled or the sieges over something like that yeah and interestingly there are a few rules legally responsible for their actions right big one it says couldn't be in office longer than six months although I think it's I think they were there to handle the situation is kind of a long as it took yeah for the most part but there were also guys who like whoa whoa I like the feel of this idea I'm not giving this up and they'll say well you have to we say in the navy said while I'm the dictator they said we hadn't thought this all the way through now Mr yeah they could change Roman law in the constitution they couldn't use public money unless other than what the Senate said you could use it for so they supposedly still in these are the official rules you know as we see coming up here people bet these roles and they couldn't leave Italy was the last one that's a good one and they would have like Colombo come in and deliver that last bit we look just only even Italy for a while okay that your Colombo impression he sounded just like just Guardado's so this kind of happened here in there until about two OO to BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some might either seventies like blaxploitation movie scorers or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit in didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and he actually wanted Cesar de Cesar ran off and joined the army Julius Caesar I should say and no and just basically lay low until seller died and then Caesar came back him he was appointed counsel and then dictator himself he succeeded sela right yes and Caesar is very well known to be a dictator but he actually if you look at the stuff he did he was a friend of the people he forgave the debts among the benevolent dictator pretty much yeah among the middle and lower classes he improved infrastructure he he basically went to bat for the lower classes which threaten the elite because he it made him immensely popular plus he was a dictator so he actually created it he staged a coup to to become a dictator right to gain power yeah which we'll talk about a little more and then it a coup was plotted against him and he was assassinated by the ruling elite of the Senate on my birthday yeah well long time before my birthday you know what I mean back in nineteen seventy one yeah we I mean we tossed out benevolent dictator couple times getting around but that's a real term that generally means a dictator who for the most part isn't just in it for themselves and they are trying to make things better for the people right but it depends on your perspective yeah exactly so like the ruling elite found him very threatening they would not have considered a benevolent at all right but like say the average plebeian would have been like I love Caesar yeah give me some more of the coins with his face on it yeah I mean followers of Castro still after his death say he was a benevolent dictator sure but again people say now it's perspective yes this objective term basically a Napoleon actually he came to power again like many dictators in a state of emergency and he was actually a benevolent dictator in a sense because he he did a lot of great things for awhile for the people he was the extremely popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go look for that I'm gonna call myself emperor they said okay Napoleon what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to it and then that wouldn't enough right so he's likely to shorten like you said though he was super popular because he was he was undefeated as a military leader he balanced the budget he reformed government he wrote the civil law which a lot of it is still around today in France yes of the law right not too bad he had a lasting impact for sure he did it again and again in two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write thrown out of one of the windows over parliament Rainey took over you probably wouldn't be like so benevolent he also control had an iron thumb on the press he controlled every facet of government he added spies working for him right so it's not like and he wasn't just a you know Bozo the clown now officials in both both of the cloud of secrecy no if you put all that together they check you get the impression I'm Y. by historians consider Napoleon the first modern dictator yeah he checked basically every box there was he had it figured out your new boxes and check those right he said all the taters to follow here's your boxes I just look down in your notes and I want to show you something I think we should take a break but before then okay trucking I think you should see this yeah so in this article on dictators from howstuffworks there's a side bar is what they're called and web print parlance yeah just a little extra bit and it the title of the sub bars dar's dictator that's all we need is a and it talks about emperor Palpatine in his rise and Chuck had his ex doubt it and I independently right out as well so we will be talking about that today everybody now but let's do take that break and we'll discuss that private so you don't get to know about it we'll be right back.

"Welcome to the podcast and Josh Clark there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant there's Jerry over there in the two thousand seventeen benevolent dictator for real she's got those capitalists that she wears all and the sunglasses I was just coming out of this is a pretty good article here from howstuffworks now yeah I heard that before to read this and you have that on there I always have it on there you didn't have it today it might be it is Sheena Freeman joined I think it may be that sounds familiar yeah anyway it's a good one yeah as that was that was word for word by intro Hey you just stole my mind reading classes and paying off Chuck yes we ever lived under a dictatorship not exactly known no I haven't either yeah and I think we should kind of cancer cells fairly lucky sure because it turns out that not only were we born in a country that most people would argue is not a dictatorship although you can find plenty of websites that argue that it is it is it has been for the last several years possibly even for the most part most people would say it's not a dictatorship so we're lucky to be born in a country that isn't a dictatorship but not only that we're lucky to be born and a time when dictatorships have become fairly hard to find comparatively speaking because dictatorships were basically the way that people were ruled for thousands of years yeah up until very recent times around the time of the enlightenment when the idea of individual liberties in the protection of those into individual liberties became kind of widespread yeah and now this article kind of starts off I thought it was it was interesting that you don't often well first of all the word dictator is just one like the one who dictates the thing it's kind of funny when you break down the actual definition yeah right now yeah that makes a lot of sense that it's the guy who paces back and forth in front of the desk or somebody's typing or anything take dictation yeah but they don't call themselves that very often although it has happened before we get into the history it's it's we should point out that like Castro and Saddam Hussein you never hear them say I'm dictator as a bad rap you know on the dictator Fidel Castro yeah it's like a propaganda got turned into PR yeah that will call themselves premier or president or chancellor or fewer boss of you Kim Kim Jong il holds three titles and he's looking for a fourth and fifth like as we speak well he's in the ground his son oh wait I got this to confuse right yeah well he held three titles yes he did I imagine Wilson probably holds for them he probably found that fourth just made one up did you know that there is like I I you know the Kim Jong moon is the supreme leader of North Korea but he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well they have

yeah I didn't have to worry about not being invited to the other consoles Christmas party the next year right the other council wanted to be invited to the dictators Christmas party yeah it's so you there was an investment of these emergency powers is one person in usually I saw one year this article says it lasted for six months and then the dictator be like well that was a wild ride I'm going back to my normal life the rebellion has been quelled or the seeds is over or something like that yeah and interestingly there are a few rules they couldn't be held legally responsible for their actions right big one it says couldn't be in office longer than six months although I think is I think they were there to handle the situation is kind of a long as it took yeah the most part but there were also guys who like whoo whoo I like the feel of this idea I'm not giving this up and they'll say well you have to we say in the navy said while I'm the dictator this we hadn't thought this all the way through yeah Mr yeah they could change Roman law in the constitution they couldn't use public money in less other than what the Senate said you could use it for so they supposedly still in these are the official rules you know as we see her coming up here people bet these roles and they couldn't leave Italy was the last one that's a good one and they would have like Colombo come in and deliver that last bit we look just only event Italy for a while okay that your Colombo impression he sounded just like just Guardado's so this kind of happened here in there until about two OO to BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some might either seventies like blaxploitation movie stars or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit in didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and he actually wanted Cesar de Cesar ran off and joined the army Julius Caesar I should say and and just basically lay low until Stella died and then Caesar came back him he was appointed counsel and then dictator himself he succeeded so right yes in Caesar is very well known to be a dictator but he actually if you look at the stuff he did he was a friend of the people he forgave the debts among the benevolent dictator pretty much yeah among the middle and lower classes he improved infrastructure he he basically went to bat for the lower classes which threaten the elite because he it made him immensely popular plus he was a dictator so he actually created it he staged a coup to to become a dictator right to gain power yeah which we'll talk about a little more and then it okay was plotted against him and he was assassinated by the ruling elite of the Senate on my birthday yeah well long time before my birthday you know what I mean back in nineteen seventy one yeah we I mean we tossed out benevolent dictator couple times getting around but that's a real term that generally means a dictator who for the most part isn't just in it for themselves and they are trying to make things better for the people right but it depends on your perspective yeah exactly so like the ruling elite found him very threatening I think they would not have considered a benevolent at all right but like say the average plebeian would have been like I love Caesar yeah give me some more of the coins with his face on it yeah I mean followers of Castro still after his death say he was a benevolent dictator sure but again people say now it's perspective yes a subjective term basically Napoleon actually he came to power again like many dictators in a state of emergency and he was actually a benevolent dictator in a sense because he he did a lot of great things for awhile for the people right he was extremely popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go look for that I'm going to call myself emperor they said okay to pull you in what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to it and then that wouldn't enough right so he's likely to shorten like you said though he was super popular because he was he was undefeated as a military leader he balanced the budget you reform government he wrote the civil law which a lot of it is still around today in France yes of the law right not too bad your lasting impact for sure he did it again and again in two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write their own out.

"lucius cornelius" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"Clark there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant there's Jerry over there in its two thousand seventeen your your benevolent dictator for real she's got those Catholics that she wears all and the sun glasses I was just coming out of this is a pretty good article here from howstuffworks now yeah I heard that before to read this one do you have that on there I always have it on there you didn't have it today it might be is Sheena Freeman joined I think it may be that sounds familiar yeah anyway it's a good one yeah well here it is that was that was word for word by intro Hey you just stole my mind reading classes been paying off Chuck yes we ever lived under a dictatorship not exactly no no I haven't either yeah and I think we should kind of cancer cells fairly lucky sure because it turns out that not only were we born in a country that most people would argue is not a dictatorship although you can find plenty of websites that argue that it yes it is he has been for the last several years possibly even for the most part most people would say it's not a dictatorship so we're lucky to be born in a country that isn't a dictatorship but not only that we're lucky to be born in a time when dictatorships have become fairly hard to find comparatively speaking because dictatorships were basically the way that people were ruled for thousands of years yeah up until very recent times around the time of the enlightenment when the idea of individual liberties and the protection of those into individual liberties became kind of widespread yeah and now this article kind of starts off I thought it was that was interesting that you don't often well first of all the word dictator is just one like the one who dictates the thing it's kind of funny when you break down the actual definition yeah right now only yeah that makes a lot of sense that it's the guy who paces back and forth in front of the desk because somebody's typing or anything take dictation yeah but they don't call themselves that very often although it has happened we get into the history it's it's we should point out that like Castro and Saddam Hussein you never hear them say I'm dictator as a bad rap you know on the dictator Fidel Castro yeah it's like propaganda got turned into PR yeah that will call themselves premier or president or chancellor or fewer boss of you Kim Kim Jong il holds three titles and he's looking for a fourth and fifth mmhm like as we speak well he's in the ground his son oh wait I got this to confuse right yeah well he held three titles yes he did and imagine what his son probably holds for then he probably found that fourth it's made one up did you know that there's like I I you know the Kim Jong moon is the supreme leader of North Korea but he actually technically shares power with two other officials as well they have basically triumvirate going there it was news to me yeah those guys are called keep quiet one and keep quiet to I was just looking up some of his greatest hits recently yeah and Kim Jong moon alone is already started to amass several but one was a north Korean leader up pretty high ranking official was executed with an anti aircraft machine gun for slouching or falling asleep at a at a meeting holy cow right but you're certainly imagine what that would do a body yeah my god for you should you should take that kind of stuff with a grain of salt especially when it's coming out of North Korea because we have really virtually no idea what's going on here today over there yeah big events like that even if it is true that that guy was executed with an anti aircraft gun whether or not it was for falling asleep during an end right at a meeting or something like that remains to be seen yeah you're saying take any information with a grain of salt yes yes good advice thanks but as Shayna I believe Shayna points out that the dictators do have some things in common one of the big ones is is almost a hundred percent of the time a dictator doesn't come to power through it an election they're usually not freely elected to that position no but they have been they have it yeah pretty prominently like Hitler you know he was elected I when he named chancellor yes by the elected president though right but he still wasn't elected no I guess that's true fine let's get into history then all right please see Dick dictators got a bad because it's got a bad rap over the years right as far as calling yourself that I think so but it it officially originally and I couldn't I saw a couple references to Greece but it seems to be Rome classic room classic room it chips coming into the party and everybody's like that's a classic room I tried to walk to that screen door open so classical Rome how about that it seems to be an invention of classical Rome right I'm there is a station called dictator there's an office basically in in ancient Rome did the leadership was held by two men called councils yeah and they were equally powerful from what I understand consuls council consul okay sure and when something went down and stuff hit the fan the Romans had a tradition of appointing one of the council's dictator yes which is basically an emergency investment of unparalleled power into this one person in the whole thinking behind it was it when you were faced with an emergency when the state was faced with an emergency you need somebody who can basically get stuff done yeah like a single voice yeah it didn't have to go to the Senate to ask anything didn't have to go worry about making the wrong move the dictator couldn't be

would have like Colombo come in and deliver that last bit we look just only even Italy for a while okay that your Colombo depression he sounded just like just Guardado's the bottom so this cannot happen to hear in there until about two OO to BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some might either seventies like blaxploitation movie stars or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit in didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and

lasting impact for sure he did it again and again in two column benevolent if you're a member of parliament who write their own out of one of the windows of the parliament Rainey took over you probably wouldn't be like yourself in a right he also control had an iron thumb on the press he controlled every facet of government he added spies working for him right so it's not like and he wasn't just a you know Bozo the clown now officials in both both of the cloud of secrecy no if you put all that together though check you get the impression.

deliver that last bit we look just only to Italy for a while okay that your Colombo impression he sounded just like just Guardado's so this kind of happened here in there until about two OO to BC and then about a hundred years after that the gentleman name Lucius Cornelius Sulla I love all these Roman dictator some might either seventies like blaxploitation movie stars or Roman gladiators sure so he was appointed dictator without a term limit and didn't have these restrictions and so this sort of changed the game from here on out yeah and he actually wanted Caesar dead Caesar ran off and joined the army Julius Caesar I should say and and just basically lay low until Stella died and then he was appointed counsel and then dictator himself he succeeded so right yes in Caesar is very well known to be a dictator but he actually if you look at the stuff he did he was a friend of the people he forgave the debts among the benevolent dictator pretty much yeah among the middle and lower classes he improved infrastructure he he basically went to bat for the lower classes which threaten the elite because he it made him immensely popular plus he was a dictator so he actually created it he staged a coup to to become a dictator right to gain power yeah which we'll talk about a little more and then it a coup was plotted against him and he was assassinated by the ruling elite of the Senate on my birthday yeah well long time before my birthday you know what I mean back in nineteen seventy one yeah we I mean we tossed out benevolent dictator couple times getting around but that's a real term that generally means a dictator who for the most part isn't just in it for themselves and they are trying to make things better for the people right but it depends on your perspective yeah exactly so like the ruling elite found him very threatening I think they would not have considered a benevolent at all right but like say the average plebeian would have been like I love Caesar yeah give me some more of the coins with his face on it yeah I mean followers of Castro still after his death say he was a benevolent dictator sure but again people say now it's perspective yeah it's a subjective term basically a Napoleon actually he came to power again like many dictators in a state of emergency and he was actually a benevolent dictator in a sense because he he did a lot of great things for awhile for the people right here is the extremely popular yeah he was undefeated at the time that he rose to power he was appointed counsel and then he said you know what let's go for that I'm going to call myself emperor they said okay to pull you in what could possibly go wrong with that yeah well first he was named consul then he was like I think council for life has a better ring to

"lucius cornelius" Discussed on Historical Figures

"Voice actors will dramatize their incredible lives reimagining their greatest and weakest moments. Then we'll examine Zaman. They're controversial deaths. Some deaths came too soon. Some remains shrouded in mystery and some changed the world forever ever today. We're covering Guayas. Julius Caesar a Military General Caesar rose to power as part of the Roman triumvirate for it but then took power as a dictator in the first century. B C but this great power led to his infamous death breath now back to the life of Julius Caesar Guys Julius Caesar Man. Where do you even start with him? You almost WANNA start right with his death. It is among the most famous deaths in history and all that but if we started with the death then we'd miss out on on one of history's greatest stories the story of a general who altered the course of an entire empire and really an entire world. Well why don't we start from day. One sounds like a good idea to me guys. Julius Caesar was born on July twelfth one hundred B C in the city of Rome he was a member number of genes. Julia whom according to Roman Legend were descendants of aeneas the star of virgils and need and the ancestor of Romulus and Remus the ancient founders of room and of course in these legends aeneas is the son of the Roman goddess Venus. So Caesar was descended from the Gods. Technically Lee yes well. His family must have been pretty well off considering they were direct descendants of one of the first Romans not exactly while Caesar's father also named that guy is Julius. Caesar held minor governorship in Rome's Asian province. Modern Day Turkey. The family was on the lower end of the political and financial totem pole. The governorship most likely came from the guy says sister Julia marrying guys. Maria's a very prominent and important figure in Rome at the time guys seemed to be at the top of the baby. Names list back in the one. Hundred's as was Caesar in the JEN's Julia according to Roman history. Plenty of the elder Plinio Flinty the elder yes plenty. The elder ancient Rome had the best name they did. Well according to plenty the elder the name Caesar came from one of the ancestors esters of the family being born of Syrian section which originally came from the Roman Word Kite era to cut Caesar Caesarian section makes a Lotta got a sense of the later biography of Rome. His Story Agusta would dispute this. It asserts that the name Caesar comes either from the Latin word for thick hair for gray is or for killing an elephant. That's a very specific image. But knowing Caesar and knowing that he would later have coins printed that featured elephants. I'm Kinda inclined to believe that last one. While Caesar was home-schooled taught by his mother a real Yukata and by a man named Marcus Antonius knife. Oh who would go on to tutor. Many Rome's greatest orators and politicians like many ancient Roman and Greek legends. There's not much recorded about his formative years and it's not like today where parents like to document. I meant every single moment of childhood all of the biographies on Caesar Begin at his teenage years. Though it's possible. These biographies originally had paragraphs about his younger days. If they did they are now. Sadly lost to history in his teenage years are in fact. Very good place to start with Caesar's journey to the top of Rome a journey that would let's start with tragedy when Caesar was sixteen. Come on father. We've gotTA GO in other father. Father Father what's wrong. It seems soon as if it is time to take my journey to the river. Styx you hold the power in this family. Now you are the one who has defined power be good son. I'll be better. I must be better. The death of guy was devastating. To the JEN's Julia I would imagine in any time in history. Losing a loved. Point is an easy. Well yes but I was also talking. About the loss of the family's political power gas was grooming the young Caesar to succeed him in his political life hoping hoping to continually increase the family's power and to restore the great Julia named to its mythological origins. GEIS's early death. I assume meant that Caesar Caesar was too young to take over his father's political career. That's correct Caesar's entire life up to that point was heading towards that destiny and now in an instant it had been swept away and consider that now at the age of sixteen. Caesar was the head of the family the burdens of his family's life and welfare now rested on his shoulders. Caesar didn't back down from these challenges. He turned this into a positive of sorts to make him and his family better than his father could have ever imagined. It began to plan a new path towards a better life. His initial plan was to Mary into a wealthy family. He was soon engaged to a wealthy woman named Katsushika Sushila whom he had been promised to since his birth. Caesar generally would have had to wait a couple years before actually getting married to his lifelong bride but with his father's death breath. Caesar pushed the engagement head quite a bit while. Caesar was trying to settle his future. A civil war loomed in Rome. Much of Caesar's just childhood was surrounded by the social wars a war between Rome and the other cities of Italy over the rights of Roman citizenship. You're telling me the social wars has nothing onto twitter. Unfortunately no although Rome would end up winning this war it was only the beginning of the republic's troubles the social wars featured. The rise is a number of military stars but none were more significant than Lucius. Cornelius Sela and Gayus Marius Guys Marias as in Caesar's Uncle by oh I'm marriage one and the same sylla was actually Marius his protege during the war. But they're opposing. Political ambitions would soon lead to them breaking apart Sola uh-huh and Maria were members of separate political factions and the social war strain on Rome brought a great tension between the parties to the surface. Selo was an optimist and believed in the authority of the Senate and the power of the upper classes whereas Marius was populaires who pushed for more input from the popular assemblies and tribunals Dell's age-old battle really in the aftermath of the Social Wars Sela and Marius both sought to lead the armies to war against another enemy mithra dates rates of Pontus who was warring over Rome's eastern territories and the Senate initially voted for Sola to take the army's to war however when Sella left the city a tribunal voted against the measure and transferred the power of the army tomorrow and. When Sola got word of this he wasn't happy he marched back to Rome home preparing to take on anyone in his way? We have to get out of here. Why haven't you heard Sylla's marching on Rome? What sella's marching on Rome with Rome's own army and with your relationship with guys Marias? We need to get you to safe place quickly my place just outside the city we can hide you there. I must get my wife Hurry. We don't have much time. Caesar could only watch. WATCH AS Roma's own men for the first time in its history siege the city it was an image that would remain with him for the rest of his life Sola. It was successful in taking back his command he exiled Marius and probably left Rome. With all of its soldiers to fight Mithra dates but as someone who was making his way to the Eastern Provinces Marias formed a ragtag army and staged their own invasion of Rome. Marius alongside his ally Lucius Cornelius. Cigna Anna Purge Rome of many of Solis followers and declared Sola an enemy of the State Lucius Cornelius Sela and Lucius Cornelius cinna on opposite ends ends of the war. Men Names agent role must have been very confusing. Yes they seem to be. In any case Sola was now an enemy of Rome and because Ozzy was so far off even when word reached him he could not immediately return. It was a good idea in theory. At least take back power and either hope that Sela dies in battle or that you can build your following enough to take down well your own army. Marias died early in the next year leaving center in charge of the new political movement. But Marius left one gift for his family specifically for the Young Julius Caesar Out East and Caesar's young age meant inheriting his is father's old governorship was out of the question but Marias and his followers were able to procure the position of Fleming dials. For Caesar Instead Caesar was now L. The high priest of the leader of the Gods Jupiter. That seems like it's a pretty important position. It definitely was not as powerful as governorship. It was says respected. Jen's Julia was making its way back to the top Senate.
