Tyranny… What’s a Despot?

If the leader of your country acts more like a plantation master, you may very well be living under a despot. Despot comes from the Greek word despotes and it means “master of the house.” It is usually meant to define a man (or it could be a woman) who rules harshly and whose governing is based on tyranny. A good democracy should be run by the will of the people. Not subject to the will of an oppressive leader, who imposes his or her desire for power, disadvantaging the multitudes who contribute to the nation’s collective wealth.
