For, if you manage to get a "dictator" who cares more for his people than he does for Mammon, then real positive gains for the people can ensue.
This formulation may be too simplistic. Cuba's Fidel Castro isn't big on money and evidently puts people before Mammon. Libya's Colonel Moammar Khadafi drives an old-style Volkswagen Beetle, for goodness sake -- obviously someone not swayed by Mammon! Is it high time we moved to Cuba or Libya in light of how favorably these dictators measure up in regard to Mammon?
