Plural[edit]

Is this ever used in the plural? I've never seen it used like that. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:46, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes. "Sir, the tyrannies of the majority will be established if we allow a resolution of this sort to be carried simply by a majority." "Force is never a remedy, and tyrannies of majorities are as bad as tyrannies of kings." Equinox 20:27, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
