The President of the Women’s Committee is the closet I have come to a tyrant, a person who uses authority or power harshly. Just how a person obtains this power and maintains it made we wonder. After all a tyrant is just one person and for a tyrant to exist others must cede power.

There must be something in human nature that permits tyranny. Maybe it is our need for order over chaos, or to be ruled rather than anarchy. Tyrants must also possess a knowledge of human traits, which is sometimes used to turn a noble cause into their own aggrandizement. Maybe in the end we accept tyrants because they are not worth the effort to dethrone, some battles are just better off not fought

People who aspire to be tyrants must have a special lobe in the brain that just does not exist for the rest of us, beyond our comprehension, so that is why the rest just got mowed over, at least initially. After awhile though, you would think a few would rise up and say "I'm mad as hell and I ain't going to take this anymore". Unless she is armed, of course. Got a Glock in her puletasi waist band?

I've been wondering about this head of the women's committee and how she had maintained her power. You'd think she'd eventually be voted out of office. Of course, maybe the committee elections are not run democratically. Or perhaps there are other reasons why this logical series of events has not happened. Nepotism? Money? Some tyrants have been known to also have magnetic personalities.

I think she is related to the Prime Minister...how he can have power to switch the road driving after all these years is beyond me, she and him must have retarded brains.
