Well, if we were essentially a dictatorship, I'm sure a lot more stuff would get done...

So innovation and progress is only possible under a dictatorship?

Ever read The Prince? It is not about "only possible", but when the system is fucked up, charitable and good dictatorship gets things done faster and better than anything else.

In theory, that is.

I'm a bit curious as to when "charitable and good dictatorship" has ever in human history occurred.

I mean, at the beginning of the Fourth Age, in the reign of Telcontir and his wife Arwen Undomiel...

Oh wait, you want ACTUAL reality... no that's not a thing.

You made the excuse for the decline in American exceptionalism, I just wanted a bit of clarification

Let me go back and read my post...

Nope, I didn't make an excuse, not at all.

Don’t start sentences with “well or “but” because, well, that’s confusing

But, but, everyone is totally dependent upon what the USA-ian President does to get anything accomplished in this world...

Well, not that good leadership from our President wouldn't be or wouldn't have been helpful.

That book is covert satire of the Borgias. It's not intended to be taken literally. You might not understand that if you haven't studied Machiavelli completely, but it's a common mistake to make.
