Do a group of people ever deserve a better government than the one it has? Aren't all countries inherently democratic?
If you live in a millitary dictatorship, then you live in a place where at least 20 percent, approximately, of the people born in your community, are willing to sign up for the millitary, in a millitary dictatorship. Often 100 percent of people are required to sign up for the millitary, or die.
If you are willing to support tyranny, rather than die, do you deserve any better? Until the whole of these countries and tribal populations, are no longer willing to kill others so that they aren't killed... Millitary rule will reign, because the society is unwilling to risk its own life to overthrow it. This is the objective, detached, emotionless stance, i've begun to find myself falling into. Help me get out if you can. Do people living under the tyrannical rule of a dictator, ever deserve any better than they are getting... Or should every man woman and child be expected to cry out "give me liberty, or give me death"?
