A modern analogy made possible “a long time ago…”

anakinFor supposedly being part of the fabled evil empire, I can think of so many other individuals / organizations where this segment of Anakin Skywalker’s dialogue from Star Wars Attack of the Clones (Episode 2) seems to fit well:

PADME
You really don’t like politicians, do you?

ANAKIN
I like two or three, but I’m not really sure about one of them.  I don’t think the system works.

PADME
How would you have it work?

ANAKIN
We need a system where the politicians sit down and discuss the problems, agree what’s in the best interests of all the people, and then do it.

PADME
That is exactly what we do. The trouble is that people don’t always agree.

ANAKIN
Then they should be made to.

PADME
By whom? Who’s going to make them?

ANAKIN
I don’t know. Someone.

PADME
You?

ANAKIN
Of course not me.

PADME
But someone.

ANAKIN
Someone wise.

PADME
That sounds an awful lot like a dictatorship to me.

ANAKIN
Well, if it works…
