plato said "Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty."
platos correct if you think about it. the more liberty there is the less rules there are and people are more free to do what they want. this means that people with a strong will to control will be able to take advantage of weaker people. and so tyranny will be born.
its not good to have complete liberty which is what happen if everyone rules
