BRIA 26 1 Tyranny

Bill of Rights in Action
FALL 2010 (Volume 26, No. 1)


This edition of Bill of Rights in Action examines issues related to tyranny. One of the most basic freedoms, often repressed in tyrannous regimes, is religious freedom. Our first article looks at the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, the inspiration for the First Amendment’s religious protections. The second article explores what the ancient Greek philosophers Plato and Aristotle thought about tyranny and the rule of law. The last article examines the recent history of Nigeria and its struggle against tyranny and corruption.
