Reading at Cold Fury.

My dictionary defines tyranny as:  The government or authority of a tyrant; the office, tenure or system of administration, of an absolute ruler called a tyrant.

Tyrant is defined as: An absolute ruler; a sovereign unrestrained by law or constitution; a usurper of sovereignty.

Neither definition undermines Mike's position nor supports Ladd's.

I'll add:

Fascism: Any program for setting up a centralized autocratic national regime with severely nationalistic policies, exercising regimentation of industry, commerce and finance, rigid censorship and forcible suppression of opposition.

    1. Fixed. It's interesting that the spellchecker didn't catch that.
