Democracy vs. Dictatorship: The difference. Dictators keep political prisoners... as do democracies. Dictators torture their prisoners... so do democracies. When abuse comes to light in a democracy, however, it is thoroughly investigated. (Man: These photos are disgusting! How could this happen?!) Not so in a dictatorship. And, in a democracy, the guilty are brought to justice. Those who follow their orders, anyway. (Bush: it's good to be king.) The winner: Democracy!
