    Extremist governments

    With all that stuff going on with Greek anarchists, a sprinkling of commies, a few nut jobs claiming to be fighting for true Islam and the extreme right cutting and pasting speeches from very blond politicians who live for hate, I got to thinking.

    I looked at every extreme government of any and all types I could think of looking for one who had actually managed to run a country without mass murder, serious oppression or generally being a bunch of bastards.

    I looked at the extreme right, left and religious and came up with fuck all.

    Can anyone name any extremist government of any type in any country that actually worked out without any of the above naughty bits?
    Be happy dudes. It's a lot more fun than crying.

    Freds OP is about extremist Governments without mass murder, oppression and bastards, I can only think of Sweden, extremely extremely boring, and extremely humorless, but no mass murder, oppression or bastards, in-fact that is all extremely forbidden, as is laughing to much or just having a good time you should think, all the Swedes have to go to Denmark when they want to let their hair down for a bit.


    (Sorry for us Danes it's a bit like the Brits Irish jokes )

    Strangely, when the Brit's think about the Swedes they think about beautiful chicks and mass orgies.

    Yes and when they think about England, they think of Harry Potter, the Lord of the Rings, English Gentlemen, Simon Templar, Bond 007 and Diana

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, orgies.

    Are there any non blonde ugly chicks over there?

    Odd as it may seem, we don't really think about Danes much. They are a sub note in history as illegal immigrants who came over, changed the British way of life and stole our women.

    (sorry. I noticed jet had posted)
    I'll get my coat.

    Spain under Franco? Singapore under Lee Kuan Yew?
    Could they be considered 'extreme' at all?

    Mr. Fred would have to define a bit more closely.

    I must look more closely at Spain. I know almost nothing about the Franco years.
    I don't thing Singapore ever really had an extremist government. Touch authoritarian but not actually extreme. (Unless you correct me)

    No, I wouldn't. But would an authoritarian government be considered extreme? One- party rule doesn't in itself qualify IMO. There would need to be more, e.g. government leadership staying in the family for more than one generation, big odds against holding a country together or being a pariah state such as Somalia or Sudan.

    Some people would consider the 70s/80s dictatorships in much of Central and South America to be extreme but most people from those countries have told me it was great living there (until those respective economies tanked) for the majority populations.

    The "Swedish Erotica" porn films / magazines were a lot of UK people's introduction to the genre. As were Swedish animal-sex videos.
    Every time I meet a Swedish bloke I imagine him standing on a bucket, shagging a cow.
