Last Dictator Standing ad by Nando's

I must say that I laughed incredibly hard when I watched Nando's new ad, featuring dictators like Mugabe, Gaddafi and P.W. Botha. They just have THE BEST ads ever! After watching it, I though a little bit more about it and it made me wonder. Laughing at dictators is funny of course, because they usually behave in such ridiculous and childish ways. But seeing them in this light does trivialise their deeds and the people they've affected.

  1. I am from Finland. I've read many historical events from old sources only, never heard these things from school or lectures of university:

    In Lohja and Espoo near Helsinki, the Swedes fenced off the school building with barbed wire, in order to ban children the access to a school.

    Censorship in the mainstream media makes Sweden, Finland and Norway dictatorships, ruled by the political and economic elite.

    Corrupt countries of Scandinavia:
    In Finland, Sweden and Norway the political and economic elite controls the media. No one can criticize the elite in the mainstream media. If a state or municipal employee criticizes leading politicians, will he or she lose his or her job.

    In Finland, Norway and Sweden nobody can have a public post without being a member of a certain political party. In Finland all high-ranking officials, who earn 5000 euros a month or more, are members of political parties.

    Here is Norwegian tv anchors:
