Would you prefer to live in a dictatorship that aligns with your political views, or a democracy that doesn’t?

I’m curious about how you weigh the democratic process with having your own views enforced by the actions of the government.

For example, if you hypothetically held some unpopular opinion on an action you’d like the government to take, and you knew for a fact the vast majority of the country disagreed with you…if you could wave a magic wand and make the government take that action, would you?

Another more extreme way of framing this is, if there was an authoritarian coup that sought to overturn democracy, would you support it if their political agenda aligned with your views?
