To quote Agent K, “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.” I assume that line is paraphrased from some ancient philosopher or sociologist, because I think it may be the single smartest sentence ever committed to film.

Deus believes there are good persons, smart, selfless, and/or wise, but realistically, the selfish, hateful, short-sighted persons outnumber them when counted as individuals, and when counted as people, well, people are easy to manipulate with fear, hate, greed, self-interest, propaganda, and tribalism. The larger the group, the more inertia it has, and the more likely it is to subsume the good ones and fall to humanity’s baser instincts.

And that’s why he firmly believes that Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others, but mostly except for a benevolent dictatorship headed exclusively by him.

The Benevolent Dictatorship sounds like straight up science fiction, but they have (arguably) existed. Wikipedia only lists three, which is a little depressing, and most have some contention and none of them lasted more than a few decades. That’s really the biggest problem with any sort of dictatorship, benevolent or otherwise; legacy. Maybe it’s possible to really have a truly benevolent ruler. But what about the next guy? In a world with magic, maybe you could concoct some sort of test that ensures a positive destiny, (but be very careful how you define “positive”) but without magic, probably the best you could hope for is a generation or two of benign results before selfish and ambitious parties begin manipulating things to a degree that the primary thing being served is greed and ego.
