# 63 THE EVOLUTION OF TYRANNY

When a situation requires the forfeiture of life, and when that sacrifice goes on and on and numbers increase daily, how many have to die, before the participants are oppressed participants rather than willing participants? When does sacrifice (willing forfeiture of life) leave off, and tyranny (an unjust exercise of power and authority by a country’s leader) begin?

This was the thought that struck me as I listened to President Bush’s address on "The National Endowment of Philosophy Democracy" this morning.
