But instead, he started taxing us for his new government palace!
Our leader promised to fix national problems by increasing modernization!
I am the king for I efficiently manage my kingdom's resources. I am king because my father was king.
NOOO!!!! THere are people of other ethnicities they cannot dictate us! I will control the nation in ways that disadvantages our ethnic rivals just because I can!
We need more foreign influence from globalization
-modernization can lead to nondemocratic rule with increased inflation or unemployment, weakening economic development and destabilizing political order-a leader might emerge that promises to restore "order"-lack of modernization can also lead to nondem. rule
Everyone shut up! I am in charge of the military therefore I decide what the borders will be!
-for rulers, the state becomes a tool to siphon off resources and maintain control-loathe to surrender power because they must give up their assets and may lose their lives in retribution-threat of revolution may make these systems unlikely to provide much participation, competition, or liberty-theory: existence of natural resources is a barrier to modernization and democracy
We do whatever our God says. If it is not in the holy book, then it is considered illegal.
authoritarian systems are characterized by the absence of civil society-those in power take steps to absorb, monitor or destroy any form of independent action not sanctioned by the state-civil society might be hindered by ethnic or other divisions
I AM IN CONTROL OF OUR ENTIRE FATHERLAND!!!
-can contribute to nondemocratic rule, most obviously thru occupation-borders badly drawn by imperial powers led to countries with sharp ethnic and religious divisions that make authoritarianism an effective way for one group to monopolize power over another-foster authoritarianism by contributing to uneven modernization and weak state capacity
This is our land get out! That's how it was decided by imperial Britain!!!
NO!! It belongs to our tribe! They didn't know a diddlily about us when drawing borders!
-some have asserted that Islam views political power and religious power as one and the same; democracy is essentially the anathema to the will of God.-Asian culture stresses conformity, hierarchy, and obedience, which are more conducive to a regime that limits freedom to defend social harmony
