It's strange how dictators always go in for big monuments and public buildings.
Stalin... amazing buildings, monuments and the Moscow Metro.
Hitler... the Reich Air Ministry, Reich Chancellory, the plans for rebuilding Berlin as Germania.
Nicolae Ceausescu of Rumania and the "Peoples Palace".
Even Enver Hoxha of Albania had his mauseleum, including a museum dedicated to him, built like a big pyramid in central Tirane. Nowadays kids slide
down the outside of its marble clad walls!
I suppose absolute power makes them want to make big public statements, showing how powerful they and their regime/country are.
pip pip !!
