    The economic system is very important. I believe more so than the political system. A capitalist economic system embraces more laissez-faire and equal opportunity, whilst a socialist economic system embraces more economic interventionism and equal outcome.

    If you think about it, even in a democratic political system the elected official becomes a dictator if the economy is socialistic and centrally controlled. A good example of this would be Adolf Hitler and NAZI Germany.

    An elected official only becomes a dictator where there are no checks and balances – for example where that leader has a veto on what can be questioned and discussed – for example a “zero debate initiative” as in RBWM council or Spelthorne’s scrutiny panels.

    I believe someone called Mr Burbage “Lord Protector” but evidently his history wasn’t up to the mark as he was later in the newspaper boasting about this compliment!
