I'm currently watching the french debates for the presidential election, and looking at Marine Le Pen (far right), I was wondering if there was any elected president considered far-right that improved the status of any country in the world.
Thinking about it, who comes to mind is Franco in Spain, Mussolini in Italy, Nicolae Ceausescu, etc.
But I might be biased in my thinking and lack enough knowledge to know that there are the same amount of far-right presidents that increased the quality of life in their countries.
So, is there any good far-right president that had a proven record of improving their country, or is it clear that having a far-right president is never good for any country?
By improving, what I try to mean is reducing the poverty, the number of unemployed people, or increasing the Gross Domestic Product. I precise "or" as it is not a requirement to have all of them that were improved, BUT, having one that was improved while the other was destroyed cannot be considered "improving". I hope this clarification is helpful.
(I'm talking about far-right here because it's the case in France right now, not because I believe - or try to insinuate - that far-left is better).
