Christopher Hitchens On The Systematic Tyranny Of An English Public School

WHAT is Christopher Hitchens talking about on Page 51 of Hitch-22: A memoir?

The conventional word that it employed to describe tyranny is ‘systematic’. The true essence of a dictatorship is in fact not its regularity but the unpredictability and caprice; those who live under it must never be able to relax, must never be quite sure they have followed the rules correctly or not. Thus, the ruled can always be found to be in the wrong.

Yep. Life in an English public schools.
