Tyranny Quotes That We Will Force You to Read For Your Own Good
Tyranny (n): cruel and oppressive government or rule
Before we dive into the tyranny quotes, let us first ask: Is the United States government tyrannical? Not constantly, no. It is awfully good of the police to arrest perpetrators of property crimes, when they are allowed to, and we’d certainly be happy to see the Coast Guard if we just flipped the official Libertas Bella catamaran 12 miles off the coast of Naples Beach.
But the government does check the tyranny boxes when it wants to. Sentencing a mother of four to 12 years in prison for selling $31 of marijuana is arguably very cruel. (Although we do wonder why she didn’t just charge an even thirty. Maybe she offered seed and stem removal for an extra dollar?) Had the CIA carried out its 1962 plan to commit terrorist attacks in order to drum up support for war against Cuba, the alphabet boys would have acted with exceptional cruelty. And giving me a speeding ticket for doing 62 in a 55 is absolute horse****.
