Tyranny is arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power, especially by a tyrant or absolute ruler. History provides many examples of tyrannical governments ruled by a despot.

President John F. Kennedy said, in his inaugural address:

  • "To those new States whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny."[1]
