ZOG is watching you.
I warn you, friends,
beware of the ZOG.

If there is such a thing as a benevolent dictator, Zog was it, he sought the highest office of power he could, not for power's sake, but to do what was right as he saw it. His reforms to end serfdom and modernize the country were met with opposition, despite Zog being a Beylik himself, and he had to resort to violence and political repression to put it down, some might question the morality of this, however the choices he faced were the moral equivalent of using violence against a criminal to stop them using violence against innocents. He sought assistance from Italy placing economic gain and the welfare of the people above petty pride, unfortunately as the events of ww2 unfolded he was powerless to stop the axis powers.

How are we to judge his rule? He undertook a very difficult task, as president he became very rich and at any time could have left office and moved to America but instead he stayed and focused on developing the economy and getting the country through the great depression, despite the length of his rule and his power he was never really corrupted by it, maintaining the vigor of a rising leader through his tenure. We can't forget that he was an autocrat but the environment of his rise to power was not conducive to an autocrat, a rich young man returning from ww1 (which he volunteered to fight in) who decides to put aside a luxurious hedonistic lifestyle and spend his time trying to fix a flaky government, willing to resist some very dangerous people and risk his life doing so rather than adopt their practices.

Prince Leka continues his legacy.
