The Definition of Tyranny

"The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. "

(James Madison "Federalist 47" Via Constitution 101 - "Separation of Powers: Preventing Tyranny")
