The World of Dictatorships


The issue of Communism and freedom is a very critical issue when dealing with International relations and politics. The map illustrates the different types of dictatorships around

the world and its relation with the United States. The map is also done by the website alphadesigner. The map resembles the objective of a propaganda map. The objective of the map is to make the image of the United States as the home of the brave people with regards to the dictators of different countries around the world. Again, it shows the superiority of the United States to other nations.

The idea of mapping the different types of dictatorships around the world and comparing it to the United States made this map very interesting. Even though the map resembles a propaganda map which is only made to make the United States be a brave country, additional information can still be known from the map. The category of the different types of dictatorships is very interesting because it was categorized in a fun way. The categories were: dictatorships we gladly support, dictatorships that don’t like us so we hate them too, Russia always dangerous and many more.

The target audience of the map is the American citizens. The map is evidently made for propaganda in favour of the United States. Just like some other maps, this map tends to make a better image for the United States by degrading other nations. The objectives of the map were definitely achieved because a great deal of propaganda for the United States was done. The map revolves around the superiority of the United States. The statement “Home of the Brave” clearly shows that the map is in favour of the United States especially if it relates it to world dictatorships.

The colour palette used in the map can improve the purpose of the map better. The map is like a propaganda map so attention-catching colours should be used for more important nations and states.
