The dictator hierarchy contains 8 text-only newsgroups focusing discussion on
the practice and geopolitics of autocracy, tyranny, and bad governance
worldwide.  The hierarchy is aggressively managed to keep it high quality,
spam-free, on-topic, and civil.

If you are interested in carrying this hierarchy (yay!), everything you need
to know is at http://dictatorshandbook.net/usenet/usenetadmin.html, including
checkgroups.txt, control.ctl, the PGP signature for control messages, Innfeed
status, and peering information.  Some of it is reproduced here for
convenience.  To ensure good propagation of articles, we are interested in
peering as widely as possible, and because our daily newsfeed is less than
100kb, it's not hard to carry our newsgroups.

The newsgroups' charter is located at
www.dictatorshandbook.net/forumcharter.html.  Address questions or concerns to
info@dictatorshandbook.net an address that is checked daily by the
administrators.  For any other questions, have a look at
www.dictatorshandbook.net.  This hierarchy is run by Randall Wood, co-author
of the Dictator's Handbook, a practical manual for the aspiring tyrant.
(Review copies are available at no charge: contact us).

List of Groups (checkgroups)

The list of groups currently available in this hierarchy is as follows, and can
be downloaded in text format from checkgroups.txt. Because this is a very
