Too easy for a hint

Why do dictators torture people?

It's not to obtain information, or to protect the nation from enemies and subversives -- although they always say those are the reasons.

It is to proclaim their limitless power, and to terrorize anyone who would question or challenge it. Anyone who has ever lived under a dictatorship knows that.
