Pathetic Fallacy: The Green Mile by Stephen King | Help Me
Chapter Of Tyranny As usurpation is the exercise of power which another hath a right to, so tyranny is the exercise of power beyond right, which nobody can have a right to; and this is making use of the power any one has in his hands, not for the good of those who are under it, but for his own private, separate advantage.
