The concept of tyranny of the majority refers to the idea that when unregulated, the government, and in effect the nation, can be controlled by a group majority. This is bad because if a majority is established that desires something that is not in the best interest of the nation, by majority rule i…t must be done anyway. As James Madison understood, the masses are easy to fool and therefore hard to control. This is considered tyrannical because in a world run by the majority, the minority group which opposes it would have no say in government. This is the main reason for the existence of a representative government as well as the electoral college system. ( Full Answer )

It refers to the idea that tyrannical takeover of a ruling entity (whether it be a monarch, or some other body of government) is an illegitimate act. Although, in CA state standard 10.1.2 for social sciences, I see this as contradictory because Plato and Aristotle both see government as an entity t…hat should serve for the benefit of society, rather than for benefits of their own; and for this, I would assume that they support the idea of tyranny because it represents the people rising up against an oppressive governing body who is governing in a way contrary to a way that would best benefit society. However, they do also touch on the idea of the people respecting the laws made by "the wise" because not all are of the same level of philosophical education, and thus not all capable of considering the effects of law with regard to the virtue of the people.

This is a broad subject and can only be answered in a general way. Here are some causes of tyranny in a country: A. Tyranny can be the result of being conquered and occupied by a tyrannical outside force such as Nazi Germany or Stalin's Soviet Union. Despite attempts to build a strong army, Polan…d was no match for the overwhelming forces of Nazi Germany and soon after the "occupation" of the other half of Poland by Stalin's Soviet Union. The Poles had no choice but to accept their fate. The example of Poland is one answer to the "tyranny" question. B. Tyranny can result in a country's population to be fooled by a political party such as the Nazi's in Germany in the early 1930's. Here the people of Germany were looking for strong leadership and to find someone or some political party to re-focus Germany's economy and regain a place of respect among the nations of the world. Sadly, they did not bargain for what Hitler & the Nazi Party brought to them once they gained power. The military, early on saw the dangers of a Hitler & worked on several plots against his life to save Germany from destruction. They failed, and when they took action in 1943 to assassinate him they failed again. C. Tyranny can be caused by allowing it to happen. What is meant by this is once again centered around Nazi Germany. France & Britain had the military power to put an end to the Nazi's who in their early years lacked the power to protect itself (in a manner of speaking ) from France & Britain. Tyranny in Europe before WW2 was the result of the policy of appeasement. In order to avoid another war, France & Britain negotiated with Hitler over Austria, and the Czechs. Without firing a shot, Hitler brought tyranny to these nations because the Allies thought they could avoid war by being fooled with Hitler's overall intentions. These are 20th century examples of how tyranny can be caused. There are many more examples in the recent history of the modern world. ( Full Answer )
