 "Less tyrannical", probably... I get in trouble for respecting my subjects. Big uproar when I drew Papa Doc Duvalier as a human being instead of a grotesque monster. But they're just like us but went down another path, I think.

 Papa Doc for instance was a devoted self-sacrificing country doctor, well known for saving children, then spent a year or two communing with voodoo spirits and went in a different direction.

 Immediately recognised. "Ha da venì 'Baffone'!" (= It should be the time when 'big moustaches' will come!) - this was said by people in the '50, when they was unsatisfied about the government...
