Can anyone find a good, non-weaselly, cite for the wikipedia remark? Otherwise I have a strange urge to go to totalitarian state and insert the following line: 'Examples of totalitarian states include, according to its critics, Conservapedia.'
Also, I'd say that Robspierre and the Comite de la Surete Publique were more of a dictatorship/oligarchy.
- OK, I added a cite. Many Google links are returned when searching Wikipedia and mobocracy together. I doubt all that many people dispute that Wikipedia is an example of mobocracy.
- If you have better examples, then add those too. But note that you didn't like the French Revolution example. And how does a "dictator" (Robspierre) execute himself if it's a "dictatorship"???--Aschlafly 12:32, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
- He was deposed by the people. I'll try and find a source, but for now, I'll defer to the boss. Wikinterpreter
