I mean when Wolverine wanted to take a bunch of valuable X men and split, not only did he let it happen (when he strongly disagreed with it), he gave them a freaking jet. Also, when Logan initially took issue with how Scott was running things, the first thing scott did was offer to set up a vote. Dictators aren't really a fan of elections.
Before Schism, he kept telling everybody that he "had no plan" and was just winging it. That's like the opposite of dictator. However, there were instance, like the "justice system" response to Lois London and Illyana, which makes no sense when compared to Toad and Masque's and their friends' continuing acts of terrorism against Utopia without punishment.
However, in Schism, he only changed and let Wolverine leave after being beaten down. Before that, his entire "argument" was that all the kids had to be soldiers in his Army regardless of how they felt about it. Heck, and some even had to give up what they wanted as a kind of barter (Idie can go, but only if Laurie stays, which was BS).

Its not a critisism if all you keep saying about a character is that he is terrible and a Pedophile. And What? We are just mad the Spotlight is on Cyclops for like a a decade almost now and really the only interesting things that happened is that Cyclops cheated on his wife again. They pretty much made the whole Mutant race a lapdog to Him to try and make him stand out as the most capable man in the room. I remember a time in X-men where it wasn't the Wolverine Show or the Cyclops show but the X-men show in which everyone got a chance to shine in the book and stand out and it wasn't at the Cost of characterization of other members of the X-men. Wolverine and the X-men is trying to show that the X-men is not just a Paramilitary force for good, they are a Military Academy in which they train their people to be able to fight and learn so they can protect themselves but they should not just be limited to the X-men grounds, They should be able to connect with Humans and interact with Humans and Interbreed.
Cyclops is always as cool as the Women he has on his arm, Is it any coincidence that as he starts sleeping with Emma Frost she becomes nicer and more accepting and He in turn takes on more and more of her personality. He drains he partners of everything interesting about them and leaves them a Shell of their former selves, He is an emotional vampire. I hope the Cyclops faze passes so we can have actual Villians again in the X-universe who were Mutants because its really grating on my nerves that The Have to turn Cyclops against most of the Marvel universe to have a compelling villian in the world.
But on the kids fighting thing, I think he just meant in that situation they had to be soldiers. Other than that I still think he would have left the choice up to them. That's just me though, I know there's an argument to be made to the contrary.
When Logan questioned Scott's leadership, Scott offered a vote. When that didn't work, he let him take a handful of highly valuable X men as well as a jet.
When people questioned Hitler's leadership, they were quickly discredited and/or arrested.
So again, scott was not a dictator. I agree that Utopia didn't have a defined government, but that doesn't mean Scott had absolute power over the actions of the X-men and those who lived in Utopia.
