This seems a respectable piece of reporting on a conference just held at The University of Chicago on Tyranny, ancient and modern. Mark Lilla, Nathan Tarcov, Paul Berman, among others spoke, with Leo Strauss in the wings. Glad to see the term resurrected, studying politics is not posssible without it. I was pleased that President Bush said, "The tyrant is a prisoner," when Saddam Hussein was captured last December.
