Could "dictator" be abolished from the global lexicon by 2012?

Through the use of technology (especially social media), we are seeing people unify to stand up against issues in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and others. It is only the second month of 2011 and we have already seen more political revolutions than even previously conceivable. An interesting food-for-thought item is to think about how soon the idea of a dictator could be completely abolished.

    Actually, North Korea prohibits online communications between ordinary people because dictator Kim doesn't want political revolution in North Korea
