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.

Increasingly Leftists demand tyranny in the form of liberal censorship or imprisonment without a speedy trial, as in the case of ordinary Americans locked up indefinitely for their political protests on public property known as the 2021 Capitol protests.

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]
