Monopoly, Aliens, and Aristotle: The guard of a legitimatel king is composed of citizens: that of a
 tyrant is composed of foreigners. (1310B31)
 It is a habit of tyrants never to like anyone who has a spirit of
 dignity and independence. The tyrant claims a monopoly of such
 qualities for himself, he feels that anybody who asserts a rival
 dignity, or acts with independence, is threatening his own
 superiority and the despotic power of his tyranny: he hates him
 accordingly as a subverter of his own authority. It is also a habit of
 tyrants to prefer the company of aliens to that of citizens at table
 and in society; citizens, they feel, are enemies, but aliens will offer
 no opposition." (1313B29)
