In MUD terms I subscribe to the theory of the "benevolent dictator," the
person with absolute power and the absolute best interest of his "subjects"
at heart.  I'm not a poli-sci expert, but I've read that the benevolent
dictator is arguably the "best" form of government there is... until his
spoiled power-hungry children inherit the throne, that is.  :)
