after ww1 How do dictators remain in power? Why is it difficult for political opponents to succeed against a dictator?

Answer:

Dictators rose to and remained in power after WW1 because many European countries were in dire economic straits and suffered from a variety of social ills that their weak post-WW1 democratic governments, bound by the conditions of Versailles, could not solve. Furthermore, many common people believed that a strong and nationalistic government ruled by a strong dictator was their best chance at solving economic problems, recapturing some idea of national glory, and bringing order to society.
