I said back simply:

...But what is the source of our concern about those forms of tyranny? After all, millions of people live under governments which most Americans would consider tyrannical in Basman's sense, and appear to like it...

Really: there are milliions of people without the rule of law, with arbitrary state treatment, without enforeceable rights of property, without rights of privacy, subject to arbitrary search and seizure, detention and arrest, without rights of habeas corpus, without civil rights and liberty, without due process under law, without equality under law, without the rules of natural justice, and on and on and they like it? Who are these milliions of people?
