“People may think of authoritarian nations in cold war terms, as states with bombastic leaders who grant themselves extravagant titles and weigh their chests with meaningless medals. These are nations without legistures, without courts, with populations cowed by armies of secret police. This is not how many authoritarian nations work today. Most have elections, legislatures, courts; they possess all the trappings of democracy. But the democratic institutions that authoritarian nations retain have little power to check the executive, either because they are under regime control or because they are cowed or co-opted into submission.” — Adam Serwer
