713 words - 3 pages

A dictator is an authoritarian, often totalitarian ruler who assumes sole power over his state. They have an extraordinary amount of personal power, especially the power to make laws without effective restraint by a legislative assembly. Dictators need many essential elements to succeed.

They always follow him no matter what he does to them, or to anyone else, and no matter if it’s good or bad. Napoleon has many followers who are ignorant. Some of them are Boxer, Clover, the sheep, and Muriel. No matter what Napoleon says, commands, or makes them do, they always follow him without asking questions.
