Benevolent Dictatorship was described by Benito Mussolini as the best possible form of government. He used that line in his political speeches, and promised the Italian people to be that benevolent dictator if elected. So they elected him.
In his speech, he would say that in a partisan democracy, if you take a problem to the government, all you get is endless partisan bickering. In a benevolent dictatorship, you get an immediate resolution to the greatest benefit of the greatest numbers. The fallacy is that you took your problem to the government instead of working out a solution on your own.
The president has recently been pining for such a benevolent dictatorship, whit himself as benevolent dictator of course. Ruling for the greatest good for the greatest number of his friends. It's how it's done in Chicago.
