A long time ago, which really wasn't all that far in the past, a dictator determined what a good life was for millions of people. His ideas did not match reality for many of those people. Dictators don't care what their ideas do to other people. Dictators only care about deciding how those other people will live. That means people can not live the way they would like. They can live as the dictator says or they will die or they will live in prison. This was Spain under General Franco.
